Artists collect visual archives like explorers stick maps on their walls. Plans of the known and unknown—what’s already explored or still has to be—set the mind racing down connections and critical challenges to them in the direction of insight. With the enormous incoming tide that has been the growth of knowledge over the last 200 years, modern science developed, claiming to have measured large parts of our universe, only to discover time and again—exactly like Humboldt and Gauss in Daniel Kehlmann’s novel Measuring the World—that the world had moved on while it was being measured.
