The soaring up of flocks of birds is only one of the countless gestures in which moving orders of nature reveal themselves. The concert of mutual resonances and reaction cannot be planned or reconstructed retrospectively. The images create spaces of moving events. We experience something comparable when people come together successfully.
Rudolf de Lippe hopes that the effect of these gestures will inspire attention for related observations; that the desire to follow such orders and to respect them in our dealings with form of life may be strengthened; that the imagination may feel called upon to seek other orders in the relationships of society, the designs of future cities, the cooperation of forms of knowledge, and many other fields.
Rudolf de Lippe (*1937 Berlin, Germany) lives and works in Berlin.
