Some Significance


by Eva Meyer-Keller

Atoms, electrons or the DNA double helix – scientific models authoritatively influence how we perceive the world. We often do not even think of them as such, so profoundly have we internalised them. Models do not just describe reality, they create their own. They fulfil their ostensible purpose of explaining reality by producing fiction intended to help us manage an overly complicated world with limited cognitive possibilities.

In Some Significance, Eva Meyer-Keller experiments with the possibilities of a reordering and disordering of what we (believe we) know. As in much of Meyer-Kellers work, everyday objects become accomplices in a choreographic game with the inscribed meanings of material and immaterial things.
