Music, weather, geography, literature and philosophy are among the subjects that inspire Jorinde Voigt’s mesmerizing diagrammatic drawings, all of which she renders into a dizzying maelstrom of lines and notations as one idea links to the next. In Piece for Words and Views, Voigt turns to Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse to produce 36 drawings, which this volume gathers.
In her drawings, German artist Jorinde Voigt (born 1977) develops a code of abstractionist signage that at first appears deeply subjective but soon reveals itself as the product of strict rules and systems. Blurring borders between science and art, these drawings analyze the structures of diverse cultural patterns via abstract parameters such as speed, frequency and orientation.

Matrix & Lemniscate, a collaboration between the artist Jorinde Voigt and composers Patric Catani and Chris Imler, addresses what happens when mortal beings encounter unending movement. Voigt draws structures that evoke infinite loops or processes, and Catani and Imler respond to Voigt's drawings by recreating the “8” infinity motif as an acoustic cluster.
