Hauptstrom
2011

After all, individual stories of totality were still in place and even if no single grand idea was feasible, the great intensity—the Hauptstrom, as Beuys called it—the grand idea was still essential to energize society.
–Hans-Joachim Müller, Harald Szeemann, Exhibition-Maker

An homage to utopian thought, this collage includes a NASA image of Mars, one of Leonardo's flying machines, the pyramids of Giza, an inverted image of Luis Barragan's Torres de Satélite, Tatlin's Monument to the Third International, towers from the Ivanpah solar facility, an illustration of New Harmony, a Mars vehicle from a NASA illustration, salt flats in Utah, the Gateway Arch, the Futuro House, buildings from Brasilia, the Stanford Dish, the Morcom Amphitheater of Roses, and some imaginary things I modeled in 3D.
