The Overview Effect (2019)
In "The Overview Effect" I worked on the biography of my grandfather (a nuclear physicist working for the EU) to create a semi-scientific, semi-associative "safari" about nuclear energy, worldviews from afar and the relocation of professional behaviors to the private. Here, as in some previous works, I used an aesthetics of knowledge by projecting slides of different elements of the periodic table on the wall. The slides were used in a rather absurd that in an explicatory way and sometimes just illustrated parts of the 33 anecdotes that I was sharing. As in most of my lectures, I claimed the authority of the speech to make assertions that became increasingly unclear (and less relevant) whether they were in the realm of the made-up or the realm of hard- facts.
„The Overview Effect“ is an ongoing project.
