Satori Rooms I-III
2016
Artist book written and designed by Mario Klinger.
Published by Braun-Falco Galerie, Munich.
Hardcover, 156 pages, 29,7x21cm.
ISBN 978-3-00-055135-2

"The series SATORI ROOM I-III was created over the period of 2008 to 2016.
The core content of the series SATORI ROOM I-III is the visualisation of hidden realities behind matter, time and dimensions – and where they might be lost to us forever. It is a voyage into the terra incognita surrounding us in our every-day life, which seems to lie so openly before us, yet we are still far from understanding all of nature’s secrets.
The works of the series SATORI ROOM I-III represent transitions between the known and the unknown in our world, between light and darkness, between emptiness and volume, between form and sign, between human and nature, between unconsciousness and consciousness. Here lies a way across, a passage, a sublime hunch of what lies beyond the known languages and beyond the fathomable horizon." (mk)

Hardcover, 192 pages, 29,7x21cm.
ISBN 978-3-00-051860-7

"In between the spheres of photograpy, painting and installation Mario Klinger investigates the phenomenon of light on an artistic-onthological level. In photographic experiments and light installations he scrutinizes the human‘s visual perception to go beyond the boundaries of the visible, following the question of how light, time, space and cognition are bound together."

Fireworks
2013
Artist book designed by Mario Klinger. Edited by Braun-Falco Gallery, Munich.
Limited Edition of 333, linen bound hardcover, 174 pages, 22,4x31,4cm.

"According to present knowledge, the universe originated from an infinitely small singularity after the BIG BANG approximately 13.7 billion years ago. All light, all matter, and all life therefore originated from one tremendous eruption of energy that has led to an almost incomprehensible variety of forms and colours, realities and worlds. It is not known whether we should hereby assume a singular event or whether the space beyond our cosmic bubble is again filled with innumerable other universes.
In order to learn more about this origin, the world’s largest civilian systems – particle accelerators and detectors – were built to generate most intensive collisions between subatomic particles. The extremely complex recording and analysis of the particle traces within such explosions allow for an epistemological process that intends to reproduce the standardised physical laws at the time of the Big Bang as accurately as possible, in order to verify the forecasts of theoretical physics and thus the bases of today‘s conception of the world.
Microscopic particle collisions, macroscopic explosions, as well as the cosmic Big Bang, all have a common denominator on different scales: they are highly energetic processes which accelerate entropy as measure of disorder in physical systems, which is the origin of nature’s power to self-create based on its infinite variety."

Great Hymn to the Aton
2013
Artist book designed by Mario Klinger. Edited by Braun-Falco Gallery, Munich.
Limited Edition of 333, linen bound hardcover, 60 pages
, 21x28cm.

"GREAT HYMN TO THE ATON is named an extremely influencal text from ancient Egypt, which is dated around 1345 B.C., during the reign of Echnaton. He is supposed to be one of the earliest religious texts, which are free of mythological concepts and therefore groundbreaking of the emerging monotheism. The main theme of the hymn is the constructiveness of Aton (highest god; the disk of the sun and originally an aspect of Ra); he didn‘t only create the whole world, furthermore he is a god who even created himself - he built himself with his own hands.
Inspired by this autopoietic principle (emanating out of itself) the concept of the photographic series Great Hymn to the AtOn was created, which comprises a cycle of 16 abstract tryptichs and show minimalistic images of the sun as profane metaphors for all life within infinite space and uncertainty."

Odyssey 2011 | Irrfahrten 2011
2012
Artist book designed by Mario Klinger
. Edited by mbf-Kunstprojekte, Munich.
Limited Edition of 333, linen bound hardcover, 100 pages ( 45 archival giclée-prints).

"
The series ODYSSEY includes 45 abstract photographic works. On many random rides this "light paintings" were created, which neither are documentary nor figurative images of nature. Much more they reflect live and being inside of chaos as metphors of light. The definition of "odyssey" as a never ending journey can be compared to our own life lines, which can be made sensible by the chronographic recorder." (mk)

Satori Room. A Sublime Port to Premoral Esthesia
2009

Artist book with three signed C-prints. Written and designed by Mario Klinger. Edited by mbf-Kunstprojekte, Munich. Limited Edition of 333, linen bound hardcover, 60 pages (Aphorisms & 20 colored illustrations).

"
In Japanese Zen Buddhism, Satori, a mystical sounding word, describes the moment of experiencing all-comprehensive understanding. Klinger’s photographic series Satori Room shows digitally altered picture spaces and views which time and again combine the factual with the abstract, uniting the concrete with the indeterminable. Thus the perceivable world is mixed with non-representational pictures of imagination, pictures which serve as metaphors for the inexplicable and mediate a visual inkling thereof. The cycle aesthetically approaches the subject of the absolute and sublime and poses the oft asked questions: Whence do we come? Who are we? Where do we go?" (vz)
