The wealth of possible interpretations of the most prominent Jewish figure of legend, the Golem, in one publication.

Thomas Huber

sad facets
“My pictures show spaces. You can see them but you can’t get to them; it is as if they are sealed behind clear glass. The picture is a promise that cannot be honoured, it is a wistful, sad thing. If I had the opportunity to enter the pictures, how would I find my bearings? I draw diagonal lines in the broad spatial flight. I find the centre at the point where these lines cross over. I add another diagonal and then another and check the depth of the picture. Eventually, an entire network of diagonals covers the spaces and I can identify a pattern of diamond shapes. The wall surfaces, shortened due to perspective, also resemble diamonds. Everything comes to a head below the surface; I see the pictures as sad diamonds.” (Thomas Huber, 2008)
