My thesis started off from the research linked to the (Red Dot Award winner) Anaptár and from the experience gained in the course of producing the series of works. My objective was to explore further scientific and artistic relationships, and to systematically process the background and parallels of the work method.
The fulcrum of my research work was represented by an examination of the antecedents of radial calendars from a visual and art-history perspective. After the idea of the method of depiction came into being, a new phase of research started into whether the motion of the Moon had been depicted in a similar way in the past.
The basic material of this work came from historical and scientific history sources. While processing the information obtained I endeavoured to take an interdisciplinary approach, and harmonise the different tools used in culture-history processing and artistic work. Approaches linked to cultural anthropology gained an important role when establishing the theoretical framework of the thesis.
My data visualization needlework on the cover pays homage to women at early stages of astronomy, especially Cecilia Payne.
