A video project by Philipp Lachenmann which is presented during his exhibition DELPHI. Involving an Indian sarod-sitar player and with elaborate postproduction, CERN‘s DELPHI detector in Geneva as the “temple of cutting edge discoveries and expanding knowledge” is turned into the miseenscène for a paradoxical mystery. By subverting the physical functions and scientific tasks of the detector, DELPHI Rationale delves into the interstice of objectivity, and infuses the mathematical world of cause & effect with layers of irrationality, wonder, and aesthetics. In its wake, color as a matter of dramaturgy leads to Painting Reloaded.
Presented in the exhibition is a test version as work in progress.
