"This is the house of Nikolaus"

nikstill002

A little world-machine in a cube of six by six feet.
The genesis in excepts: The creation of light, clouds, birds, aeroplanes, of the cow, the planets and the moon.
A love story in three acts with a depressing ending.
Permanent sleeplessness pervails.
With the hatching of the pterodactyl from Ignatz´s breakfast-egg the history of birds commences.
With the argument come clouds, the sea and the ships.
Whatever they create multiplies;
Nothing ever is lost.
When they separate, the world is already overcrowded.
The disparate dispositions of Ignatz and Balduin become apparent after the separation.
They meet again in space.
Balduin mounts the roof of his cube and tries to contact Ignatz with his megaphone, but the air is to thin to carry the sound.
Once again, they drift apart.
The moon smiles cynically.
