An Ocean of Possibilities

Jens Sundheim

Von Ameisen und Sternkörpern

Science searches for knowledge, but the results can be unpredictable, suggests the German photographer Jens Sundheim. Depending on your point of view, you can call the results of research dubious, worrying, promising or clarifying. They can enrich understanding, cure diseases and make life easier, but also can help destroy mankind. In his series Von Ameisen und Sternkörpern Sundheim recorded this complexity at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, using his camera as a scientific instrument to discover the visual traces of scientific research.
