Synthesist’s Table imagines the knowledge production system of another world, in which the experimental instruments are organic and organ-like, and the work station operates as a diagrammatic body. Beings made of glass on the table imply forms of consciousness that exist in a vastly different scale of time. Glass vessels placed on glass mirrors raised and balanced by coal refer to heat and the technology of temperature.
