Approximately 15.000 small-format slides were taken from the slide archives of Bochum University’s Institute of Art History and installed in the University's art collection according to a previously determined algorithm. Sorted alphabetically by artist's names, they are spread out on a table base into fields of varying sizes. The number of slides displayed is proportional to the total number of slides per artist in the 120.000 slide collection – comparable to a bar chart or a three-dimensional topographic map. This temporary and reversible form of presentation represents a visual analysis of the specific teaching and research focus of the University’s Art History Institute.
