Art for the jubilee
For its 60-year jubilee, ISAS invited students from the design department of Dortmund University of Applied Science to visit the institute and visualize the research – literally. This led to the creation of ten impressive works. Two pieces by young artist Frank Hildebrandt were acquired by ISAS and installed in the institute's building in Otto-Hahn-Straße: “The Art of Seeing” and “The Depth of Things”.
Both refer to a quote from Günter Eich: “The depth of things is their surface”. The two times two metres wall installation “The Depth of Things” reproduces the quote in Braille using stainless steel spheres in the round. “The Art of Seeing” expands on the principle with seven plates bearing transcriptions of the Eich quote in Braille using a variety of materials.
