A neon colored rubber ball is accelerated by gravity. The long-awaited landing on the ground is withheld from the viewer. The bouncy ball flies endlessly through ever-changing backdrops.

From the Series Sequenzen:

The body of work Sequenzen (Sequences) is a series of experiments on the forces that surround us. It tries to understand the shaping of the world by tiny and at the same time incredibly impactful forces like sound waves, vibrations or gravitation. Some works use a kind of magnifying glass to make these forces more visible, while others play with the expectations we have of them. In doing so, I am concerned with thoughtfully moving beyond mere physics and highlighting the influence of each individual. Like the famous butterfly effect, we are constantly interacting with our environment, creating ripple effects whether we intend to or not. The Sequenzen series of works contains, among other things, objects that are deliberately designed to be ephemeral; their creation already anticipates their end. Similar to a life that in the process of being lived approaches death, an object approaches its uselessness precisely by being used.

Sequenzen is a body of work since 2019
