KOMPASS 

 

design skills

happily nosy & observing behaviours

applying thought methods and playing with traditional design thinking approaches

 truly listening

discussing ideas and concepts

doing my best to improve processes

collaborating with insightful experts and complete novices

I don't panic in the open field - I rather like it to be honest

lean and agile as my cat

 

I know, love, and have strong opinions about the fundamentals of design:

color, composition, rhythm & form

MASTERS PROJECT

My film/work has been an attempt to create a visible void while still maintaining the form of portraiture - an observation of what is is infinite from the inside although finite from the outside.

 

Beginning with the question of reality in imagery, of what creators frame and what they choose to set focus on and its importance in storytelling. What makes a portrait truthful or real?

I want to discuss in particular how distortion is used to visually intensify the perverseness of dark emotions, as well as the viewers’ perception of these fluctuations in reality.

The power of the portrait and distortion can produce a physical reaction, a reaction so deeply rooted in the human curiosity for oddity that the viewer can engage with - they become open for the visual representation of the void.

INSTALLATION

125 BLICKWINKEL

Im Rahmen des Ulmer Münsterturm-Jubiläums entwickelt die Bootschaft | Crew für Gestaltung & Soleil du Midi die Kunstinstallation „125 Blickwinkel“. Diese verbindet Objekt, Bewegtbild und Ton zu einem audiovisuellen Erlebnis. Ein Arrangement von Elementen, die in die Höhe streben, wird von Projektoren bespielt. Dieses erweitert das Bauwerk perspektivisch und macht es emotional erfahrbar.

You have a direct, intense visual language and possess a richness of ideas. You are most strong in your combination of radicalism and classic design processes.
