With his artistic concept of the “Multiscala”, which observes the environment from a physical and a philosophical perspective as both microcosm and macrocosm, Marc Reist discovers the roots of his artistic work.
His working concept is detached from the referential size of human existence: everything that we see around us is not really as we see it. Whether it is a point, a surface, or the length of a coastline: it all depends on our viewing distance.
It is possible to imagine a new cosmos in every small organism. A structure on a small scale is reflected on a large scale. And a large-scale structure is reflected in the small, because they are related in their composition.
With this concept, works emerge that offer an interpretation of the motivations and rules of our existence and of the structures we observe, the textures and forms.
