Geist

Geist is a visual manifestation of a million thoughts on the verge of petrification. A mental shard. A rendered artefact of an indefinitely continuing battle between burning out and fading away.

The overwhelming complexity of 100.000 polygons and procedural displacement mimicking pearlescent calcium carbonate directly correlate with the often futile process of overthinking. Ultimately Geist is the metaphorical beacon leading to the final conclusion – there is beauty in breakdown.

BREED I-III

When the pandemic hit Germany in March 2020 I decided to shoot ‘BREED – Epilogue’, a short film and hommage to Harrison Vincent’s ‘Breed’. The film has been shot in camera using fluids which have been digitally enhanced afterwards. ‘BREED – Epilogue’ was featured on Behance shortly after release. ‘BREED 03’ is the final part of a digital triptych.

Forever, 2018

In July 2018 I was invited to create a short film for Pause Fest, Melbourne based leading conference for business and creativity. I spent four months shooting all sorts of materials – from glas orbs to liquids and prisms visualising Emily Dickinson’s famous quote ‘Forever – Is Composed Of Nows’. The film is loosely based on Robert Plutchik’s “Wheel Of Emotions” which describes eight primary emotions we experience in life.

Cell, 2019

CELL has been shot in camera with various household liquids and fluorescent acrylic color. Under certain conditions combining fluids with different viscosities produces beautiful cells with an almost organic appeal. The gentle and hypnotic metamorphosis makes taking your eyes off of CELL almost impossible. However, I have never been able to reproduce this look which really makes it a one of a kind piece.

coreMEMories

Everyone has experienced something in their lives that they will never forget. Be it haunting, soothing, inspiring or engaging. Some of those memories hold us hostage. Some frame our presence and future.

‘coreMEMories’ refer to very few specific events in our lives that deeply shape the way we are.
