Laid over an image of the skeletal structure of Thomas Edison’s film studio float two polyhedrons – crystalline forms that distort and reform. Edison’s structure, believed to be the first dedicated film studio, was heliocentric. It had to be turned towards the sun on a rotating platform to capture enough light. The polyhedron belongs to Durer, he possibly took this unique asymmetrical form to express the melancholy of the painful and slow death of his mother. Durer’s etching couched in alchemy is often considered to be one of the first examples of personal self expression through allegory.
