Here I am in the middle of Germany, writing to you, showing you my work. And you all,
who and where ever in the world you may be, you can read my words and see my paintings
in a matter of seconds after I posted them.
This technological phenomenon, that doesn't seize to dazzle and fascinate me, has its origins in this building. The first telegraph connection of the world was established in the Göttingen observatory by Karl Friedrich Gauss and Wilhelm Weber in 1833.
