Rosenthal fast vase, porcelain. A mixture of collective memory and futuristic abstraction symbolises the cultural shift, triggered by digital technology: the speed of information processing, its obsolescence and its secession. The time-lapse effect is expressed by the metaphorical decoration of the vase, while on the other hand, displayed by high-tech tools, 500 years of human manufacture are grouped together.
