|Kindler Castle in the Air transfers my painter's attitude into the field of computing. It is a cycle of digitally made pictures based on the painting encyclopaedia “Kindler”. It mainly consists of 12 volumes in alphabetical order with more than 1000 biographies of painters.|
|I transfer the painters' days of birth and death, as far as known, to geometric co-ordinates, in order to re-present every painter as a specific rectangle. The brightness, height and width of every rectangle, its two-dimensional position, its virtual level of depth, as well as the extent of unsharpness are exactly determined by the data collection.
|The datas do not include those painters, whose date of birth and / date of death were not exactly or not yet known.|
|The high complexity of the statistic leads to “unusable” diagrams. Watching them as pictures is supposed to be more essential for the recipient than reading out any informations. As a kind of hommage to all painters, Kindler castle in the air suggests to imagine a reverberation of painting.|
