“The three individuals Arne Schmitt, Rabbaya Naseer, and Greg Nwosu are asked to carry out the classification of twelfe images by applying a method Adanson applied for the classification of plants in Senegal between 1749-1754, (…). The classification method results in the detailed description of all 12 images once and only once. These descriptions act as categories through which the images can be grouped. Each individual is then asked to select one group of images to submit to this edition.” (Textauszug aus dem Begleitheft der Edition, verfasst von Fari Shams)
