Redesign and restructuring of contents for the internet presence of the Institut syn. (Bremer Institut für Kunst, Musik, Design & Wissenschaft).
The goal is to develop a simple design with a clear visual language that emphasises on the institute's interdisciplinary nature and that shows a strong focus on its trans-disciplinary projects.

Sonidos Perdidos is an experimental/abstract short film about lost sounds. In the form of fast-cut scenes resembling a digital collage the scenes tell the story of different protagonists wandering through the seemingly unreal landscapes of Fuerte Ventura prompting it to educe lost sounds. Thematic centerpiece of the film is the interaction of humans with their surrounding nature and the arising clarity that all things perish.

The HFKIFilm is a representative movie for the University of the Arts Bremen. It shows the overall output of the different areas taught at the faculty and serves as visual reference for exchange students and prospective students. All the settings, requisites and music were produced at the HfK Bremen.

Based on the perception that every human being has an individual radius(personal space) in which he only tolerates a selected few other people, Reactive Cubes explores the intrusion in said space and tries to transfer the reactions onto simple machines. In order to accomplish this, the process gets stripped of all complex interpersonal relations and puts a focus on the resulting defensive reactions. In the final scenario the process is reduced to an agressor(distance), a reactor(sensor) and a reaction.
Reactive Cubes was developed in collaboration with Jonas Otto in context of the class »Nearness« under supervision of Dennis Paul, SS 2010, HfK Bremen.
Two people meet though they never see each other. Two rooms share the same space while being in different locations. Moving Structure is a virtual collision machine with a physical output.
Two in their form and measurements identical - but physically separated - rooms are used to record movement, which is then merged on a virtual level. The resulting (virtual) collisions are then brought back into the physical world by mapping them on a canvas.
Moving Structure was developed as a group project in the course »Audiovisuelle Kommunikation« supervised by Roland Kerstein, WS 2009/2010, HfK Bremen.
Though my creative roots lie in web design and I have worked as a freelance designer for some time now, my field of interest has vastly diversified in the last couple of years, now including areas stretching from photography and cinematography all the way to interaction design. Thematically, my main interest lies in exploring (modern) cultures and subcultures, but I am also deeply interested in the interaction between humans as well as the interaction and relations between humans and machines. When I am not immersed in my work I enjoy fueling my creativity by traveling the globe as much as I can.
