Fortress of solidarity selector

Fortress of solidarity selector - interactive installation

The „Fortress of solidarity selector“ is an interactive video platform. The user puts a color stick into a tube to play and watch videos. The player starts as soon as one of the color sticks is put into the tube. The 3d-printed tube and the color stick lights during the playback.

It is important to note that all parts expect the 3d-prints are abandoned materials like mc cases, found wood plates, etc.

Who the wind blows

Where the wind blows - floppy disk artwork about environmental pollution

Germany is advanced in wind power. We have those modern "wind mills" everywhere. AND: thats good. We can't rely on fosile fuels. Sooner or later oil and gas is gone. AND: what then?

so white the paper

Single 3.5 floppy disk with Industry photo on it - secured by acryl glass

We want more all the time. More new smartphones, more new computers - BUT we never think about where the more new comes from. We are so detached from earth that we produce and consume 24/7/365. And what do we leave behind?: an uninhabitable planet we leaf for the next generations to clean up. Is this the way we should live our lives? Certainly not. We are not on this planet to cause its collapse.

The photo was taken in Finland.


are you certain? (or do you still believe in politics)

Silk screen on hard drive disk. unique. first, awesome upcyling by artist Dominik Jais

Part of the brave new words series. Are you certain is the queston the viewer has to answer. The smaller letters in the background form words like SSL, Encryption, Wikileaks, Whistleblowing, etc. The brave new word series reflect on the words we learned since Edward Snowden leaked the NSA documents.

somebodys watching us

sombody is watchin you - protest image on 3.5" floppy disk

the photo was taken during students protests in Berlin back in 2004. During that time I elaborated on black and white photography together with other students who were living at the Victor Jara dorm in Berlin Biesdorf.

The photo is more current than ever. We get watched by whomever for the greater good of peace. In 2014 it still feels like that we are watched by the staate more than ever before. It feels like everything is known by someone - even if we don't know who this Mr or Ms "someone" is.
