The World as it is but isn’t

Berlin Science Week | Dana Kirijak

interconnective ways of seeing

While science appears to follow an objective approach and art searches for a subjective, emotional truth, a closer look reveals that intuition, curiosity and emotionality play a major role in both areas and that they are ultimately a human endeavor. The limitations of the one are the other’s strength. The division into a rational and irrational view of the world, into body and mind, into an inside and outside has enabled us to gain a deeper knowledge of them, but we now realize that everything can only be fully understood in their context.
Dana Kirijak’s works approach a wide variety of scientific topics with a playful, intuitive approach and attempt to bring these connections into a subjective overall context. In doing so, she draws analogies between the phenomena of the universe and the smallest human events. For example, similarities can be found between colliding stars and human relationships, parallels in the communication between bacteria and humans, or previously invisible things can suddenly be described with formulas. It’s about a general questioning of existing concepts of understanding the world around us and how new perspectives can create a new, deeper feeling for our surroundings.
