Time-space compression of the Atlantic region

2 objects, pinewood, enamel, 2 x 52 x 60 x 10 cm

Two objects which are made up of models of trade relations and their development in the Atlantic region, as well as the times needed to cross the ocean - how these were changing from the 15th c. to 19th c. Visualizing historical and statistical data, Simon refers to the idiom of modern art; his works are based on objective, scientific data, but subjected to free plastic treatment.
