RISE OF THE TULIPS

    RISE OF THE TULIPS


  • Description: Since industrialization we are changing the world according to our ideas, and evolution can seemingly do nothing about it. Evolution just seems too slow to be able to act. But what if nature strikes back one day? If we believe that we are in control of nature, but nature cannot be controlled? What happens if one day we have changed nature so much that nature threatens us? If it is suddenly us, who are threatened with extinction?
    The work "RISE OF THE TULIPS" shows a circle of tulip petals. It seems to come out of nowhere. The colors of the petals are reminiscent of fire, danger and destruction but also the beauty of nature, a sunrise or a sunset. The circular shape symbolizes the perfection of nature. But even a cannonball looks like a circle when you look at it two-dimensionally. But these are petals. Petals are delicate constructions of nature. They cannot be dangerous to humans, right?
    Humans do not associate a sense of danger with petals. Nowadays, humans no longer seem to feel that nature could pose a great danger to them. They live mainly in cities. Nature is far away. They feel safe. Nature barely occurs in their minds. They have very different problems that are much more important in the here and now. But the petals in this work are also shown as a wave and should remind the viewer of a tsunami. A wave that can destroy everything that man has created.
    As long as we do not responsibly deal with this planet and we do not learn to live with nature, rather than just exploit and destroy it, as long as we do not really appreciate these complex interactions of organisms and as long as we underestimate nature and lose our sense for it, we run the risk that nature will one day strike back. Nature will not make this aware, but disrupting the complex interactions of nature can lead to a devastating catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions. A natural catastrophe in which, of course, man will not bear any guilt. It was then just a whim of nature.

OFF TO NEW SHORES

    OFF TO NEW SHORES


  • Description: The viewer stands on the shore and sees a boat at anchor and a horizon in the fog. The boat seems to be made of paper, but the reflection in the water suggests that it is a solid wooden boat. Should he get into the boat? What awaits him? Will the boat sink? What is on the horizon? The boat is oriented towards the light. Does the sun shine there? The viewer has to make a decision. Is he setting sail and heading to new shores or does he prefer to stay where he is?

    WHERE ARE YOU GOING, YOU HELPLESS PROFIT-HUNGRY PEOPLE?


  • Description: The earth is burned out. The earth was exploited by the people down to the last cent. It's time to move on. The universe is big and full of possibilities. Like the locusts and full of hope for the next big profit, people move on to the next promising planet. Until the next planet will also burned out. Until the next planet will also be exploited by the people to the last cent. But the universe is big and full of possibilities.
