Metamorphoses of Life - MIMESE - Evi Leuchtgelb
"If we now notice that in this way it is possible for the plant to take a step backwards and reverse the order of growth, we are made all the more attentive to the regular way of nature, and we become acquainted with the laws of transformation, according to which it produces one part through another, and presents the most varied forms through modification of a single organ. [...] This metamorphosis shows itself to us in three ways; regularly, irregularly, and randomly."
(J.W. von Goethe)
It is precisely this random metamorphosis described by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe that is the starting point for my work Mimesis.
