Model of Nature, Goethe’s model is an installation clashing three strategies of studying nature in one space embodiment.

First strategy is Natural philosophy speculations and visual intuitions rooted in personal artist’s life practices. Second strategy is natural-science epistemology Goethe’s theory, so-called “careful empiricism”. Third strategy is a well-known mathematical interpretation of biological morphology by D’Arcy Thompson.

Despite of huge difference in scale, essence and positions these three approaches of nature investigation pass through test of space, matter, and human experience together.
