„…it was a good omen, a sign of good hope for someone sailing toward an unknown land, toward the continent of time. I wanted to find a key to the timepiece of humanity, to become humanity's watchmaker, and to map out a basis for predicting the future. Humanity, as a phenomenon caught up in the flow of time, was aware of the power of time's pure laws, but feelings of nationality were strengthened by recurring and opposed dogmas, all attempting to depict the essence of time with the paint of words.“ Velimir Khlebnikov

The future calculations by Velimir Khlebnikov“ sind die Künstlerin Kristina Paustian und der Fachbereich für Mathematik und Computer Science der Freien Universität Berlin zusammengekommen, um sich den Kalkulationen des berühmten russischen Futuristen Velimir Khlebnikov zu nähern.
