Thüringen

Thuringia

Loop

It is as if a bear were sleeping and people had built their houses on its fur. Incessantly, the house models – finds of the former model building boom from East and West Germany – rise and fall, office buildings, factories, churches, refineries, leading their contemplative and unstable lives of their own in quiet harmony on two floors.

Voodoo I

Voodoo Style I

Loop

Voodoo Style I is a rhythmic movement rite for three avatars of my dancing body. The design of the proxy bodies is made of recycled plastic, glued airtight. Three fans in on/off use determine the body shapes of the dancers as well as the rhythm of their bending and folding choreography. The fat ones inflate, they straighten their backs. The skinny ones run out of air, they fall back into the second dimension.

3. rank, right row 2, place 6 – 8

Loop

The theater seating stands on the stage. Or vice versa: The stage floats above the audience. While the – mechanical – concert begins, the chairs dance, folding open and closed, as if the audience would jump enthusiastically or annoyed from their seats.

Der Buddha und der Wolf

The Buddha and the Wolf

Loop

My memory image from a childhood dream: a wolf rocks me on his back. His fur keeps me warm. I recognize its scent. We walk through the dark city and howl – Hamburg 1973. The dream image has become a sculpture.

Potlatch

Potlatch

Loop

Two crocodiles meet for coffee. The best dishes are brought out. The coffee table is hyperactive and begins its hydraulic life of its own. This doesn’t seem to bother the crocodiles, they are engrossed in conversation. Their constant nodding of heads is a sign of affection. The coffee service finds its order in the chaos on the unstable tabletop.

Topfpflanzen

Potted plants

Loop

A tulip takes 6 days from bud to full bloom. I have shortened this natural process, to 42 seconds, and developed a kinetic time-lapse model for it. This model allows to experience the blossoming of a plant, in a time jump. Its petals reach out into space. They breathe, they seem latently threatening.

Maren´s Safari Lodge

Maren’s Safari Lodge

Loop

My safari installation shows stylized movements of exotic animals whose existence I only know from the youtube animal movie channel. My animals are made of used shopping bags. Radial fans breathe life into them, so that they show their animalistic threatening gestures in repetitive motion sequences – and collapse exhausted when the air is sucked out.

The walking machine reproduces for each shoe its own walking pace and gait. By mounting different objects under the soles, the individual shoes get their specific sound.

Loop

Six square tubes are connected with joints and driven by a 12 V motor. A loose XXXL dress hangs over the moving tubes. They determine the choreography of the dance. The dress is in motion. It replaces the dancer.

Polish down

Loop

Guaranteed not live plucking. Goose down is from slaughtered animals. Each down weighs about 0.4 grams. In each showcase fly the down of three geese. Their slow motion flight resembles snowflakes.

Spurenelemente

73 trace elements

Loop

If one observes the glassblowers at their work at the melting furnaces, the concentrated workflow is reminiscent of the clear agreements of a choreography. In 73 Trace Elements, a fleeting movement has manifested itself into a floor sculpture: The dynamics of the dance steps gliding across the floor are captured in solidified glass steps.

Hubble

Loop

The Hubble Telescope orbits the Earth at a distance of 600 km, sending unimaginable images from the depths of the cosmos. It is the largest space telescope to date. It draws its power from a rotating solar ring coated with silicon dust. Here you can see one of the eight ring segments. It rotates at 90° to the sun.
