The following text as part of the work:
Schrödinger’s kitchen is the last vision of an aging scientist found after his disappearance. Obviously, he used the days left to put into practice his thoughts on the exhaustion of spaces (… the complete abolition of all life­relevant and thus deadly forces by means of their superimposition and disintegration.) In the kitchen of his apartment (that nothing more possibly can happen). He visualized his dream of the heavenly picture and experienced ­ as the found records can be seen ­ hardly to be suspected horror. You will probably see the last photo showing Schrödinger (original) as well as the experimental set­up found in the abandoned apartment, into which he turned the kitchen (an eternity). Schrödinger was no longer seen.
The comprehensive of this supposed find is the equipment with a fleeting personality, which remains unbelievable as an author. The function of each protagonist as an alibi will continue to occupy.

A manifest of the game that the cruel optimist ife refuses to be. On the surface, this is an optical machine that invites tired people to lay their heads and choose a viewing direction. However, the history of this expression of a last vision suggests that exhaustion beyond fatigue (the axis anyway) remains imaginable. A room that closes around the head (blue table) and that narrows inwards, whose openings indicate logics of various dimensions. In the quantum world of the once real Schrödinger, an ambiguous place of residence is thinkable and imaginable. Undecayable whether exhaustion or more of cockiness for this attempt animated to get to such a place. Nothing from outside the kitchen can be found on the object. The authenticity of the story is proofed by newspapers found at the bottom of the rolled­up bottom funnel.
