Dance to the Future with Me: An interview with Miki Yui on her partner, Klaus Dinger

Posted on January 11, 2013 Comment

Klaus Dinger (1946 – 2008) was a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Düsseldorf, Germany, who gained an international reputation as an early member of Kraftwerk and founder of the bands Neu! and La Düsseldorf. His propulsive drumming style was considered one of the “great beats in the ’70s” by Brian Eno. Neu! and La Düsseldorf have inspired many musicians, including Hawkwind, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Radiohead and Blur, and their influence continues to grow.

Paul Laffoley and Phil Weaver with Alchemy: The Telenomic Process of the Universe

Paul Laffoley gave us some amazing insight into his painting Alchemy: The Telenomic Process of the Universe. Footage to come soon…

My painting Alchemy elucidates the alchemical process, which is telenomic rather than teleonomic. A telenomic process is one whose end is not known but becomes more and more obvious and certain as you proceed. The divine goal of alchemy is the transformative union of not merely intellect and passion but of the masculine descent of the spirit and the feminine rise of the soul. At a certain point their union becomes ineluctable and irreversible, and they cook together within a Klein bottle in the Athanor, the cosmic oven. Above the Athanor is the Tree of Sephiroth, the Kabbalistic tree of life, topped by an ankh, the Egyptian symbol of life. -Paul Laffoley
