‘Under The Magnifier’ is a little optic sculpture that cites the homonymous essay presented for the Hannah Arendt Prize 2013.
This text — 1500 words about the Promethean act of disobedience as spirit of the creativity — is printed on a sheet of photographic paper that is 15000 square millimetres (15cm x 10cm).
The paper is mounted on a helping hands hobby tool and, using its magnifier, it can be tautologically read as act of philosophical survey.
