proportion and justice
sees that the problems of art and construction are those of proportion
but seldom people realize that the mainpart of our reality
beings is due to this order: proportion is the key to social constructs: its forms are justice, communication and freedom.
To look for freedom and justice means
to look for the adequate proportion in a social and in an individual
construction. To aim at this
with arms and war means to believe in the
possiblity to repair some GPS-item with an axe. This is the technical
reason why there never was
or will be a "just" ( or holy) war and there
is only the possibility of "justifiable war".
and sculpture have one intimate reason: this is- to find an adaequate
proportion. The mistake of systems of proportion like the "golden
that -if they were right- there would be only one
possible proportion. But this is the structure of Totalitarism and
Totalitarism as any - Ism allways is and will be
a natural enemy of "kairos".
understood as a refinement of sensibility for the aedaquate proportion
in ever changing situations, is both: an individual pursuit of
fulfillment of life, that means"kairos", and
a sozial pursuit of a just and balanced society. Art therefore
is a longing for truth and not in any concern
a praise of force.
The series "Ortfindungen"
are some approaches to get more
sensible on the meaning of proportion.
