MANIFESTO

Construction
1) Think a lot about aesthetic dimensions
2) Play with scale
3) Try to work with extreme positions
4) Don’t stop to work on the dimensions

  • Organic < artifacts > Artificial
  • Emergent < behaviour > Static
  • Humans < being > Machines
  • Crowds < social> Eremites
  • Macro < scale> Micro
  • Intimate < privacy > Public
  • Grit < texture > Polished
  • Holes < structure > Surface
  • Ordinary < content> Extraordinary
  • Unique < repetition> Repetitive
  • 1 < scale > Multiple
  • In < context > Out
  • Ugly < expectation > Beautiful

Interaction & Perception
5) Don’t care too much about others than yourself
6) Make something rich, playful and sensitive
7) Enjoy yourself

Reaction
Hate, love, ignorance … so what

WHY
„I was educated and trained to be a scientist to understand the world. I am not able to understand the world by scientific methods. But I am very curious to abuse science as a playful ingredient for my egocentric mashups of commodities, patterns and readymades out of the ordinary. It feels like playing with lego bricks back in the innocent days of childhood. You may call it art but you don’t have to.“

Others
[Noble&Webster in ArtNow Vol3]“… a man wakes up… and feels invincible… The same man wakes up the next day … He feels redundant, lost and vulnerable – totally alone in the world… This is the life of an artist.“
[Stingel in ArtNow Vol3]“Things become very scary when you take them out of context and change the scale. But isn’t that what art is about? Dislocation?“
[Koons in ArtNow Vol3]“I don’t believe that you can create art. But I believe what will lead you to art is to trust in yourself, follow your interests and focus on your interests, That will take you to a very metaphysical state.“
