Heisenberg Objekts by Fabian Oefner

Sliced and Diced

Heisenberg Objekts by Fabian Oefner

Connecticut-based artist Fabian Oefner is preoccupied with the boundary between space, time and reality. He is also in possession of a very sharp cutting device, which he uses to slice everyday objects into bits and pieces. These are then set in clear resin to create sculptures which show "explosive" views of their inner workings.

Oefner's dismembered objects range from a flight recorder and a Leica camera to a Seiko alarm clock and a Nike shoe - all reduced to perfectly preserved fragments which offer new perspectives, concealing as much as they reveal.

These sculptures are inspired by and named after Werner Heisenberg, the Nobel prize winning physicist best known for the Uncertainty Principle. Translated very loosely, this suggests that you can understand an object by measuring one parameter at a time, but not multiple parameters simultaneously. These beautiful and intriguing sculptures are indeed graphic reminders of the challenge in understanding the big picture and small details at the same time.
