Invisible Border, 2019, Sommer-Symposium „Grenzen: denken und überwinden“, Hennebergisches Museum Kloster Veßra
I have been dealing with this question for many years now and unfortunately not found an answer how to overcome boundaries between the people. Even my hope for achieving this is diminishing.
Borders are drawing lines between people, limiting the Idea of humans as free, free to articulate opinions and feelings. People nowadays are connected in many areas and should use political, ethnic, cultural and environmental links collectively and individual for improving the conditions of our small planet.
Borders are dividing people, alienate people from each other, they are getting more and more afraid of cross-cultural societies.
It seems that this is getting worse. Borders are getting stronger and more insurmountable every day. How would it be to live without borders?
It would be a beautiful life, which is currently far beyond realities ......

two canal video installation
Finally free - Escape from civilization - freed from all constraints. The mountain world, which is so hostile to life in the first place, immediately conveys a feeling of security and immediately becomes a place of longing for the beholder. The floating ceiling gives the place something mystical, there the little church, spirituality awakens - the so unapproachable place becomes the source of deeper knowledge for those who reach it. Shoes that no one owns, footprints in the snow - departure to another life.
EMANATION - EMPHATY , 2012, 2 min. the two channel video installation that is presented with two dialectically positioned projections telling their own story the author creates a world of poetic illusion and harmony that, in a certain way, reconciles the irreconcilable and justifies the unjustifiable.

The interactive installation "Word, World, Way.... “ is presenting a connection between three synonyms with which we used to present our thoughts, our moving, our world. The Word is transferring our thoughts. It is a reproduction and presentation of our mindset. It transfers our inner World. With words we are depicting the “outside World” our inner universe. And Word, World, Way is interacting and affecting each other. It moves us in real and virtual World.
SALTY DROPS The installation consists of 70 glass balls falling freely floorwards from the ceiling and a video projection. The glass balls are filled with red fluorescent liquid with different fullness and density, which gives an ambiance of light and fluid. In the background, a video of tears falling down the artist's face is running. The video is specially toned with a sound of drops following the tears. The installation is set in a completely dark room where the glass balls are filled with fluorescent light with special illumination. In old antic times when women where waiting for there husbands during long combats and wars they collected there very own tears in ceramic jugs in order to provide the agonising sadness and pain to there returning husbands. Tears are drops which are a part of our being, and they are my first inspiration on water and liquid. They come as a product of our emotions whether sad or joyful.
