2017-2019

At night in the Chi­lean Ata­cama desert astro­no­mers observe the edges of the uni­verse, in Copen­ha­gen cli­mate rese­ar­chers examine air that has been locked in the Arctic ice for thou­sands of years old, and in the heart of an Ita­lian moun­tain phy­si­cists await a gleam that no human eye can see. Fun­da­men­tal rese­arch in the natu­ral sciences often eludes our powers of ima­gi­na­tion. Yet the very basis of our future pro­gress neces­si­ta­tes a con­stant search for ever new insight. At a time when it has become poli­ti­cally pos­si­ble to ignore or even negate scien­ti­fic insight, the Hypo­the­sis pro­ject uses docu­men­tary pho­to­gra­phs to high­light a com­plex and sophi­sti­ca­ted scien­ti­fic system as a basis for an enligh­te­ned and future-ori­en­ta­ted society. The series has about 50 pho­to­gra­phs and will be exhi­bi­ted at the Lodz Photo Fes­ti­val 2019. The book Hypo­the­sis will be publis­hed by the end of the year.
