The series Per Vitrum is based on two books: Isaac Newton‘s Optics and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe‘s Theory of Colours. Both publications analyzed the fundamental nature of light, its refraction and its perception. While the scientific basis of Goethes‘ work was rejected by physicists, it was very influential in the arts (eg Turner, Kandinsky). In Per Vitrum I am combining the objective reasons of the 18th century enlightenment (Newton) with the subjective intuition of 19th century romanticism (Goethe).
