Cooper Holoweski: Nothing Everything Nothing

Nothing Everything Nothing

Cooper Holoweski

This artist book is inspired by the works of 16th-century theologian Robert Fludd, who attempted to write a volume of books containing all of the knowledge in the universe. Holoweski re- investigates this naively ambitious premise by combining contemporary science with his own spiritual system.

Also influenced by the work of Robert Fludd, Holoweski’s short film, As Above So Below, will be screened at the 57th Ann Arbor Film Festival at 5:15pm on Wednesday, March 27th at the Michigan Theater.
