Sudan, the only remaining male northern white rhinoceros.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya.
This project documents Sudan, the last white rhinoceros of North Africa. Sudan lived his life inside the Prague zoo, before being transferred to Kenya for reproduction and specie preservation. Sudan lives under armed protection. Giovanna Silva spent ten days in his wildlife preserve, following him from a close distance. The book, entitled Good Boy – the way the guards call the rhinoceros, this lullaby which endlessly accompanied Giovanna’s days with the rhino – 0372, his breeding number, is a tribute to this prehistoric and unique animal. The book is conceived as a sequence of abstract images, in which the animal is barely recognizable, and close-up of his skin and his body progressively fading away.

“An intelligent and literarily written account of ‘the art of assholedom’, shining light on all-encompassing and ruthless art as/is life as represented in the acts of Kippenberger, Lee Lozano, Andy Warhol.”
– the northern committee

“Truly unapologetic assholery of which (and because) the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ remain hard to grasp – leaving those who try with nothing but a blank stare: why accelerate on a dead end street? Is there a way out – a secret, or a lie? But told by the beholder it still remains a bitter fairytale.”
– substantial times

“So there is a moral after all, despite the critique of art world mechanism that is convoluted and captivating with a discernible joy for provocation.”
– amsterdam tribune

“A voice that we can’t help but think is yet too cautious to actually touch upon the unknown knowns.”
– the moral observer book review

Gregor Mobius. DNA Semantics. Visual Representation of DNA and RNA Lecture @ Motto Berlin on 09.08.2016 @ 7:30 PM

.

This lecture is about an interpretation of DNA/RNA as visual structures with specific formal properties and relationships. Instead of the existing alphabet representation U, C, A, G and T, all the bases are expressed as five discrete values of the gray-scale:  T=white, G= light gray, A= gray, C= dark gray and U= black. Arranged in 3 x 4 matrices DNA strands as linear structures consisting of alphabet letters are converted into 2-D images with distinct visual properties. In this representation we could learn more about DNA/RNA, not only as biological (functional) structures but also as a specific language that can be expressed visually.

______________________

Gregor Mobius is a theoretician of languages that are expressed visually. His early work was in the field of Graph Theory developing an algorithm for visual representation of all planar and regular graphs. As a Fulbright scholar he received master of Science in Visual Studies at MIT with the paper “Discrete Visual Structure – Elements of Visual Grammar” (1984). A few years later, based on his thesis paper, Mobius proposed a specific representation of DNA and RNA that converts linear alphabet DNA structure into a 2D image. This work was presented to the public at the exhibition Gene(sis) that traveled through some West Coast universities: Washington University(2002), University of California, Berkeley (2003) and University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (2004). It is now for the first time presented in a comprehensive way in the book “DNA Semantics”.
