feather tapestry

A tapestry which is inspired by a trip to morocco where the wind and the dirt on the streets and on the beaches revealed the beauty of feathers and their burnt and dirty colours.

Within this project I was fascinated by the feast „Dias de las muertos“ – the day of the dead in Mexico. I was especially interested in the people and their handling with the death, the way they celebrated and mourned and as a result the extreme, contrasting emotions. The object I created is an own interpretation of my childhood memories and the ambivalence between freedom and security, which can turn into feeling captive.The typographic elements create a patternlike structure, but they also form to a story which originates a puerile energy but is actually a text for grown ups, more than children. The contrariness is intensifyed by the colourful and happy looking figure in contrast to the sceletonlike form and the captivating shape around the puppet.

boundaries of decay

boundaries of decay

In this paper work I searched for the traces of decay in manmade as well as in natural formations. Through structures and forms, connections between those worlds are visualised. The cycle of genesis and decline, that roots through all areas in life is perceptible. The Process of decay und decomposition can also bring the roots and the base nature of things to light. A leaf crumbles apart until only it‘s bare skeleton is left. The veins, that kept the organic structure alive, reveal the parallels between the city life with it‘s buildings, paths and roads, which are the materials that form our environment into a pulsating, living being. I formed a graphic installation with light and shadow, which transforms natural decay into the structures of a new, unkown city.

fold & twist rings

fold & twist rings

The second part of the multiple project was creating a jewel out of a 10x10cm silver plate but no other additional material. I decided to create rings but instead of the traditional method of making a ring I decided to mill the silver plate into a certain thickness and use it to make thin rings with a focal point on top through folding and twisting the silver. The idea was that you could choose between different motives on top and also if you want a double or single ring. I chose one motive – the diamond – to demonstrate the possibilities of this method and to show the beauty of silver. The simple silver diamond works as an eyecatcher, instead of the normally used stones as a centerpiece.
