About the work:

Müller draws from the themes of linguistics, numerical signs, stellar- and solar-systems, the impacts and effects of which, although based on empirical results, are largely invented by the artist himself. Müller is widely known for his drawing and work in writing, although he also works across other mediums such as sculpture, installation and painting.
