The Reappearance (Butterfly Species in the Goetheanum Garden) 

2008, Selmer Law Company, Norway

A series of 14 analogue photographs


The series was created during a visit to the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. This is Rudolf Steiner's largest architectural achievement, and functions as the educational and spiritual centre of the anthroposophical movement. The photographic series is a formal investigation of Goethe's colour theory in combination with the expressive and ideologically charged architecture of Steiner.
