Fragments of the Whole  -  a mosaic-tic-tac-toe by Chris Mennel

The organizer of the exposition Wolf Nkole Helze finds himself in Chris Mennelīs art object

In my "electric mosaic" 15 selected photos are translated into 9 mosaic loops. You see 9 movie-like sequences of photos, moving in circles. The loop movies present ways of balance between a universe of components and one personal special presence.

Like a mosaic picture consists out of lots of photos, my electric mosaic "Fragments of the Whole" gives an idea about the next mosaic step behind the single mosaic picture, behind the timeline of a mosaic movie: Lots of loops can grow together to one fluent impression.

Maybe with huge engagement someone could create some hyper-mosaic-movie. But maybe with some distance again a next step will wink - a cube of mosaic loops, a labyrinth, or whatever...

The basic message of people and things being able to break into fragments is shown by every simple mosaic picture. "Fragments of the Whole" now presents the additional message that structures of bigger complexity wait behind the pool of mosaic pics. This message is told with a minimum of nine mosaic loops. They are the eclectic electric selection.

Wanna see an example? Here comes Fata Morgana , loop Nr. 2, top row in the middle. It is an .exe-loop and may just function on a Windows system.
