Polybius mathematischer Schatz

Ellis Island, 28 February 2012: In a former bonded warehouse the United States Park Police hides a machine of unknown origin. In the heart of the machine: a series of pictures, mounted on prisms that can be differently arranged by the means of cranks. The authorities are at loose ends with the device.

“Polybius mathematischer Schatz“ is a combinatorial comic. The plot plays in a room where most of the time pictures are hanging on the wall. There are one, two, three, four or infinite actors, furthermore a glass, a chest and a key. They read, dream and cheat, as well as love, drink and forget. Every time you flip a page, the same story rearranges. Or there are different stories where one contains all others and at times also itself.
