“Oda Pälmke’s way of working is characterized by the methodology of appropriation, the appropriation of found material. It is a strategy that allows a fruitful examination of the real. Casual and trivial, found and invented develop new levels of meaning through their specific way of working through. If everything can once again become “starting material for transformations”, everything can again become “raw material for productions”, says Peter Sloterdijk, there is no creative creation ex nihilo and the modern phantasm of tabula rasa is overcome. The creative process then consists in finding an attitude towards what has been found and developing a story from it. ”(Anh-Linh Ngo, publisher ARCH +)

asterism – | ˈastərɪsm | (noun) a group of stars that form a pattern in the night sky.

Asterisms – a new map reinterpreting the celestial sphere with 35 new star patterns.

Much like the 88 constellations that make up the officially recognized map of the celestial sphere, this new map is composed of recognizable shapes that reference people, animals and inanimate objects, expanding across the sky. In the tradition of Hellenistic astrology, each asterism is based on viewable celestial formations and references our continuous hope in the stars. All star formations have been complemented with a modern myth, each based on a verifiable certainty (i.e. a fact) that addresses modern concerns.
