Strange Universe, collected works (2010)

In their work on cosmological thought, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari underscore multiform aspects of the ‘cosmic’ as well as limitations of our perception due to relative horizons (the cosmological horizon) and absolute horizons (the horizon of events of black holes), which they have become aware while reading one of my papers on the topics (cf. What is philosophy?, 1994, p. 36 and 220). This video editing of artistic representations of some cosmic architectures that I made starting in the 1990s–Chinese ink drawings, lithographs, collages– pays tribute to their work and stirs reflection on the multitude of cosmic representations calling for various range of human perception.
