ABOUT THE WORK
09065_001 SCHEESTERNCHEN (EN: little snowflake) by Heinrich Heidersberger covers a wide range of topics, from architecture to algorithmic art.
The focal point of this piece is snow crystals. On cold winter nights, Heidersberger caught single snow crystals to photograph them with a specially constructed microscope. It was originally produced on a 6 x 6 roll film. Affectionately, he called the result SCHEESTERNCHEN.
Inspiration was likely drawn from the work of the US-American Wilson A. Bentley, who photographed thousands of snow crystals, analysed them, and published a book in 1931. The seemingly infinite multitude of shapes results from the molecule structure of water.
