Metaphysical Garden

Metafysiscal Garden, 1989, Bundes Gartenschau, Frankfurt (the German Federal Horticultural Show)
The first words of the creation hymn in the Gospel of John are the source of inspiration.
“In the beginning was the Word
and the Word was God and
the Word was made flesh.”

The Word as the first “seed” of awareness, the Word as first “image”. For a long time, numbers have played a well-established and important role in the body of our work, particularly the number 100. When the number 100 is divided into 3×33+1, it becomes the symbol for the magical perception of structure and time, repetition and progression. The number 100 becomes osmosis between nature and culture, between spirituality and economy.

 

The Metaphysical Garden becomes a garden of "Words", a strictly ordered field with the word 'Plant' repeated a hundred times in Corten steel. The thirty-third word is removed, and in the space left by this omitted word there grows a Golden Plant. This Plant becomes the symbol of the "Spiritual Measure of Man" a metaphor for the consciousness in transformation, symbol of a quantum leap in the area of tension between nature and culture. In 1991, this Golden Plant gave rise to The Unifying Spiritual Field of the World
