"A book of epic depth – it makes the infinite of space tangible with your hands."
The universe is unfathomable. It’s beyond our human imagination.
What happens if you transfer the aphelion of all eight planets to the sun in one book? How many pages does this book have? Can you turn the pages?
If you open the book 'Aphelion', the reader will see nothing but stars. Just the sun can be spotted on the first page. In the footer, a continuous quotation begins that accompanies the entire book as a voice from the off.
On the 15th of October, the book opens up its pages temporarily at einBuch.haus. So the reader can explore the book pages and discover the eight planets of our solar system in a physical space.
