„The Arscientic Andism – My Romantic Manifesto“, 2020
By and with Denise Schellmann
My romantic manifesto of the Arscientic Andism is an unofficial pronouncement directed only at myself.
It manifests my path to access the indefinable area between art and science. „Arscientic“ is a composition of the terms „art“ and „science“. „Andism“ originates from the word „and“. It is the literal conjunction between art AND science, which provides their fusion. In this interspace, neihter categories nor limitations guarantee certainty and stability. A non–category defines this indefinable area.
In this video performance I refer to the transitory validity of principles, of rules. My inner voice guides me towards my 13 oughts of my romantic manifesto of the Arscientic Andism. I explore several intimate options of constructing and deconstructing it.

„Micro Live Drawing“, 2017
In her performance Denise Schellmann projected a living water droplet live on a large scale paper (112 x 83 cm) through video recordings in a light microscope. Through her graphic intervention in the projection, she experienced a fusion of the microcosm with the macro level. „I recognized an awareness of the interconnectedness of everything with everything, a fusion of invisible structures“. Due to the changing water droplet followed by the changing image in the projection, a drawing of several superimposed layers was created, which can be seen as a map of the dynamic life of our (own) microcosm.
