The installation Pfütze (Puddle) consists of a pool of water on the ground which reacts to acoustic signals. To every loud noise in the room, the puddle reacts with seismological vibrations. In this way, the accumulation of water does only reflect the surrounding space, but also the ambient sound.

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
