Atmosphere ≠ Totality
The dioramas show meteorites and volcanic stones that Schulzek collected and bought during her stay in Iceland. They are set in stainless steel plates on which the artist has applied stylized images of the earth‘s atmosphere. The plates were heated by a special laser process to apply the images to the material. For Schulzek, meteorites and volcanic rocks represent entropic material. Entropy describes the process of decay, that every matter strives to the state of disorder.
