Originally from the East German city of Eisenach, Andreas Nottebohm would become one of the premier chroniclers of the American space program. Nottebohm's work, like the space program, has a unique appeal to the imagination that seems to inspire scientists and other artists in equal measure. In his art, Nottebohm strives for nothing less than a deeper understanding of the cosmos - and in his drive to pursue that goal by adapting new technologies to his vision, he has more than a little in common with the astronauts he admires. He can talk about space exploration and string theory, and at the same time there's an emotional side to his work, a feeling that conveys the greatness of the universe and your smallness in it. Nottebohm isn't a painter or an etcher, but he carves long scratches into sheets of metal - copper, aluminum or titanium. The art he creates moves when you move, becomes almost completely three-dimensional. You'd swear you could put your hand in it.
