In the Tauba Auerbach exhibition TIDE visitors encounter numerous references to the findings of the natural sciences as well as to related phenomena and experiments. Italian mathematician Giuseppe Peano appears alongside his Polish counterpart Wacław Sierpiński, a tesseract next to an oloid. The pilot wave theory forms the basis for a video, and meanders and fractals zip through the works on display. Behind it all stands the big question as to how many dimensions there are – three, four, or even more? Together with mathematician Moritz Strube, we’ll set out on a search for clues while we seek to render Auerbach’s complex referential system more understandable – because there are veritable miracles hidden away behind the forms and patterns of the artworks.
Moritz Strube is a mathematician and has been working in IT for almost three decades, currently as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of an AI startup and lecturer in AI at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. In his free time, he occupies himself with mathematics, the natural sciences, philosophy, and art. He is fascinated by the links Auerbach forges between these fields and is interested in the relationship between art and reality against the background of new scientific insights.
