the Rehearsal


von Sebastian Klemm

»Nature is all about cultivation: creating and alternating circumstances to survive. Man-made visions, habits, philosophies and technologies are in themselves recursive towards a still present human nature – yet also manipulate this natural bond simultaneously. theRehearsal detects the human conditions of ›an urge to understand‹ and ›a will for making sense‹ as a constant processing that drives the development of cultural artefacts and translations. – Translations with that mankind seeks to bridge the gap between an individual selfawareness and a global, shared ecology. theRehearsal seeks the human face within this processing and celebrates all man-made cultural in(ter)ventions/translations/communications as part of the one and only perpetual creation and protection system: nature as a whole.« – Sebastian Klemm, 2011.
