Dialogue
Concerning the Two
Chief World Systems

Could you prove that the Earth orbits the sun? Reading the Dialogue concerning the two chief world systems was like exercice my right to vote : a way of paying a tribute to the actions some people took long ago and of which I can effortlessly benefit today. I dissected the book and extracted all the diagrams and some of the chapter titles. Ninety-six linocut prints and eighty seven statements are discussed in the book to explore the fumbling and sometimes the mistakes which led to something that goes without saying four centuries later.

Linocut on paper and laserprint on tracing paper, 156 pages, single copy 10x15 cm
