Christian Waldvogel's artist's project for frieze d/e is a development of Globus Cassus, his contribution to the 2004 Venice Architecture Biennale. There, Waldvogel attempted to visualize a techno-utopian inversion of planet Earth in a larger, concave sphere. For the project On a Universe Turned Inward, Waldvogel applies this inversion to the human body — from birth to death, Courbet to Bacon — as well as to the entire cosmos, with its intersection of time, space and infinity.
