Weekly Report (2017)
Cyanotype on seven aquarelle papers, 
each 56 x 42 cm

The picture series „Weekly Report“ consists of seven „Daily Reports“. For each Daily Report I stood motionless on a piece of paper. Because the paper was brushed with a light-sensitive chemical solution the imprint of my feet and the shadows of my body emerged. Even though I repeated this procedure everyday, slight deviations occur between the Daily Reports because it is impossible to repeat the same procedure in the exact same manner.

Summer Holiday (2014)
performative installation

Over a period of one week I was blowing up air mattresses. Out of the inflated mattresses a tower was constructed. By the end of the exhibition it reached the ceiling of the room.

Wall-Piece (2013)
installation

A wall-piece is embraced by strings. In the interior the strings run parallel to each other and cover a part of a door-notch. Outdoors all the strings run together in one point.
The Embracement keeps two doors from being closed. Therefore the installation has to be destroyed in the end of the day.
