TULMAN2021 are thirteen computer generated images in the form of a wall calendar for the year 2021. It shows the development of a mysterious product called "Galton" throughout the years 1990-2021 by the fictitious company TULMAN. Bacause todays science is responsible for the greatest „miracles“, an old gospel reemerges - that we would find salvation in the form of an almighty technology that would lead our lifes and even defeat death. In the form of pseudo-secular ideologies like they are common at the Silicon Valley, we are now experiencing a kind of resurrection of alchemy. The photorealistic images, which are created in a 3D Rendering software (like the products of Apple or Samsung) are suggesting that the „absolut product" now exists and, with a wink, refer to the age-old conflict between religion and science, which consists in the fact that these two models of thinking either appropriate the other one (e.g. astrology) or reject it (materialism). The latest Galton presents itself as a modern magic stick – "Finally Science Invented Magic".
