Free shipping in the U.K.
Art is freedom. Everything is possible. Carsten Nicolai creates his work according to the strict application of his very own rules—and has established an impressively clear artistic perspective. Parallel Lines Cross at Infinity showcases Nicolai’s fascinating artwork from the past ten years, which explores the boundaries and intersections between art, nature, and science.

Carsten Nicolai uses patterns, series, codes, grids, mathematical equations, televisions, computers, neon tubes, and other devices. He visualizes phenomena that are usually invisible to the human eye, such as magnetic fields, and works with and against gravity. Nicolai considers the world to be his laboratory and his art can be seen as his experiments. In the examples featured in Parallel Lines Cross at Infinity, he analyzes, fragments, and condenses data and images in order to give his audience direct access to highly complex processes of time, space, and sound. Nicolai visually structures even the greatest chaos and his results are aesthetically brilliant.

Parallel Lines Cross at Infinity offers a wealth of inspiration for anyone interested in avant-garde art, mathematics, science, experimental music, and film, as well as conceptual thinking and design.
