Verkörperung: Bild und Experiment bei Edgar Wind und die aktuelle Lage der morphologischen Forschung

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Edgar Wind’s The Experiment and Metaphysics examines, in the sense of Goethe’s morphological project, the common structures of scientific and artistic thinking in the light of the reflective value of the image and the technological processes of research and construction of reality. In Wind’s philosophy of em- bodiment the image plays a role in the artistic field comparable to the function of experiments in science. The picture is neither a ‘copy’ nor just a ‘part’ of reality, but rather an ‘embodiment’: at the same time the ‘result’ of human activity and a ‘condition’ for all interpretation of the world. It opens up as an embodiment to a temporality which is not just linear but ‘configured’, i.e. morphologically con- stituted. The aim of this chapter is to reconstruct the main articulations of the wind proposal, while testing the possibility of linking image and technology ex- periments through the interactions of current augmented reality.
