Abstract

A publication of artwork with commissioned contributions by Anna Crowe, Stephen Hughes, Alfonso Lingis and Alistair Potter.
Introduction:This publication brings together
Ramsenthaler’s stunning images and writings inspired by her work or linked to the ideas and subjects it covers. Ramsenthaler chose each of the artists to contribute to the project. Philosopher Alphonso Lingis was invited to contribute an existing essay, because the ideas it explored - our animal nature - chimed with aspects touched on in Ramsenthaler’s work. The others were invited to participate by using her evocative images as a springboard for the creation of new work. The result is lyrical poetry by Anna Crowe, quirky science fiction tales by Alistair Potter and Steve Hughes’ intriguing exploration of symmetry breaking. None of these writings describe any specific individual image, and none of the images illustrate the writings. Rather they link to and reflect different facets of each other. Together they form a powerful, stimulating and thought provoking body of work.
