Language Arts in the Age of Information

Based on the findings in FAUNA (2018), the visual artist Elena Peytchinska and the poet Thomas Ballhausen, in FLORA, continue their discourse on contemporary information and its theorization. Peytchinska’s plant diagrams and Ballhausen’s literary texts create a "texture" – not only of landscapes of information and the way in which they are ordered, but also of the dialogic practice of the linguistic art made readable. In the book, which is both object and place at the same time, geometric and topological strategies are combined to produce novel spatial mentation. FLORA maps these spaces and explores the networked territories with the aesthetic and scientific means of linguistic art.
The book as a tangible place of artistic literary practice
Art as a platform for the encounter of the theory of science and the history of science
Development of a new vocabulary for art and theory
Elena Peytchinska and Thomas Ballhausen investigate the connection between space and language; they live and work in Vienna.
