Perspicientin / 2011

paper object / unlimited edition
12,5 x 6,5 x 2 cm

Perspicientin is an object looking like a package of a medicine but it contains nothing. The word Perspicientin is in embossed letters and in Braille, too. The word was borowed from the Latin word perspicientia which meant cognition, knowledge or insight. Since the fourteenth century the word perspicientia was also used for the geometric construction of central perspective.
