Abstract

Aglaia Konrad, Armin Linke and Bas Princen are artists who reflect on the theme of overlapping, duality and layering within their work. In this way, they observe both the subjects of their images and the language of photography by which they represent them, adopting strategies that, starting from repetition and archiving, incorporate some typical processes of scientific research, though without making any claim to being scientific. This is the key to the title of the book, which pays homage to a famous book by Nobel Prize winner Francis Crick, borrowing his praise of hybridisation, fusion and fertile encounters between differences. Typically suspended between art and science, architecture is a constant running through the works by Konrad, Linke and Princen and one of the subjects privileged by the three authors, though none of them can be identified in any way as “architectural photographers”. Within their research, buildings and built space are never observed in themselves, but always on the basis of a relational logic in which these are only some of the numerous topics dealt with.
