Impossible Bottles
"Impossible bootles" is the title of an ongoing series showing worlds kept in what appears to be a vessel. As for the original impossible bottles they show objects that don´t really seem to fit through the mouth of the bottle. I found them to be an amazing inspiration to show animated worlds that are somehow limited or finite yet to include figures that observe their surroundings and experience it, maybe got lost but see the bottle, the boundaries and ask themselves how they ever got into it...
! The animations might need some time to load - please be patient !

DIPLOMA
Illustration
Diploma
For my Diploma I created different pieces with various buildings and objects.
After a while I decided to develop certain sets, recreations of cities like Berlin, Paris or New York, but also themes like "Modernism", "Quotes" or "Jungle". For the sake of variation there are not only single pieces but also bigger ones like 4, or 6 pieces merged to one big tile!
New pieces can be added at any time. There´s no final image ---

Auswaertiges Amt
card+poster
Auswaertiges Amt - Human Rights Logo
I have the pleasure to be regularly working for the Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt) in Germany. Their Human Rights Department has a Project called the Human Rights Logo. To quote their website: "As a universal symbol, the Human Rights Logo can help to draw attention to human rights violations and give a voice to those fighting for their rights." I created a Christmas- and a Happy-New-Year Card - also a Card and a Poster called "Human Rights ABC" that gives you ideas how to push the message for Human Rights worldwide - hopefully there´ll be more to come!
