  • About the work

The key stages of the epistemological process are source, data, information, knowledge, and finally wisdom.

Humans are mostly visual thinkers, this map is an intellectual aid that can help navigate the process. The work presents itself as a suspended, consultable device with which one can explore and investigate the abstract space of knowledge and its variables.

About the Artist

Amsterdam, Netherlands

To this aim, he employs diagrams both as a method for critical thought and as an artistic medium. Where most art is concerned with human variance and the unique individual, Arler follows an alternative route driven by an innate urge to understand the constants and constraints that define the limits of the self within society.
