Sculptures of waste
Through sculptural installations I transform waste products into a new image. The finds come from my direct personal, industrial and landscape environment.
In the Ruhr area of Germany, my native region, I studied the human impact on land and vice versa. Waste of the coal mines formed new nature. The theme of the landscape and my interest in raw materials originates from here.
I approach different landscapes from the sea as a seafarer. While the voyage lasts i record personal gestures towards my surroundings, which indicate the human need to appropriate land since history. The images show strength and vulnerability.
