Speed of Life, 2019 / Salvation Curves, 2019
The brick, literally formed from earth itself, is one of the most ancient building materials in the world. Already in the story of the Tower of Babel, brick construction has been described as a specific techno- logy which endows humanity with power—power that becomes threatening to the biblical god. The Brick has the contradictory quality of being both structure and cladding at the same time. An in- terlocking pattern ensures the stability of the wall and forms a continuous fabric. Building with bricks introduced an ornamental grid that extends from the dawn of civilised life to our present-day digital raster graphics. It is a geometrically rigid system, but one which calls for deviation.

Jonathan Steiger (*1997 in St.Gallen CH) is an artist living and working in Amsterdam. With a wide-ranging approach that includes video, sculpture and writing he works on the topics of landscape, aesthetics and urbanism. In his current projects he traces the collapse of the dichotomy between «natural» and «cultural» within the landscapes of the anthropocene. He holds a BA in Fine Arts from the Zurich University of the Arts and is currently part of the Studio for Immediate Spaces at the Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam. He is a fellow of LINA European Architecture Platform.
