Besides the expressiveness of Kogler's works, the significance of content has also played an increasing role in the last few years. Material staging is becoming more important, the possibility of a sensual feel for space (tapestries, curtains, architectural carrier-constructions). In the concentration on the motifs of the human brain and the ant, Kogler is referring to structural analogies between the ant state, the human brain and the computer (highly developed communication, discipline, effectiveness and conformity, firmly fixed work demarcation between the individual parts of the system, which can only exist as a complete whole).
The ant, scanned in by Kogler years ago and repeatedly cloned, is a queen of the guest ants (formicoxinus intidulus), The ant was selected purely by visual criteria, neither its status of species being decisive. Through repetition and constantly new reproductions of his modules, Kogler is building structures inaccessible labyrinths, cords, bands, lines or ordinary patterns symbolising the human brain, and the statebuilding insect become symbols in which the unique, the individual is subordinated to an order that strictly serves the organism as a whole.
"In the complete society there is neither emotion nor pity. Valuable space cannot be wasted on those who have outlived their usefulness." "The sexless worker is the true source of freedom in every society."
"Perhaps with time we will become as functional as those we emulate. We will develop faces without facial expressions: only the eyes and mouth; just enough to keep the rest of the body alive. No muscles to smile with or look darkly in any way betray what is going on beneath the surface."
"The living prototype of the computer was developed by nature long before the primate family gave rise to the brain animal, man. This prototype is no more and no less than the termite hill, one of the first experiments in social order (...) We all know of course that the insect, compared to humans, shows none of what we could call intelligence. But why should we feel proud because of that? (...) A computer is a mechanism programmed with hundreds of thousands of tiny units of information. It works by ordering these units into logical base patterns, sifts through them, and puts them together in different combinations. (...) is not a smoothly functioning society like a form of logic? I would argue that the inhabitants of those termite hills, as they make their way along their hidden pathways, have organised themselves into a form of undeniable logic, hundreds of thousands of tiny information units, each one a part of the whole.
