Panamarenko: Tekenen En Rekenen
Artwork by Panamarenko.
A most extraordinary individual, Panamarenko is the engineer, poet, physicist and inventor, who, for 30 years, has been investigating means of solving many of our earthly and extra-terrestrial issues. He analyzes the secrets of the universe, gravity and other energetic mysteries, and tries to formulate both logical and well-considered solutions. His work is the poetic result of artistic skill and scientific research; the outcome can take the form of a flying saucer, backpack helicopter, flying carpet, zeppelin, solar powered car, submarine, or prehistoric bird. Each of his spectacular constructions possesses not only a peculiar beauty and naive playfulness, but also a degree of conspicuous consideration. This oversize volume, magnificently illustrated with Panamarenko's layered drawings of speculative, extra-worldly creations, is an imaginative, inspiring joy to behold. In Dutch only.
