About Me

My photo
Leipzig / Germany and Winterthur / Switzerland
We all carry information. Ordering and translating such into my world of pictures is the subject of my work. I often start with photo sketches which I transfer using different methods. This not only strengthens reality, it also puts it into perspective, expressing my current state of understanding. It invites the viewer to search for the core of the matter.

Was using the day to play around with stop motion - something not really serious... the first I ever did

start of a new quarter

School's 2nd quarter ended last week, and the 3rd is just starting today. I learned a lot about printing, with focus on intaglio printing in dry point, etching on soft and hard ground. The topics of the new quarter's classes will be typography and motion - yeah, I will have to design and do a short motion movie. So thrilling what I am allowed to learned these days, compared to what I did over the last couple of years :)
