My Bachelor project deals with the visualization of the poetry of Wislawa Szymborska. The goal of this project is to explore methods, in which people can relate in a visual way and emotional way to words and prove that poetry has a potential to be expressed, not only in books but also in an audio visual way.

The project includes seven poems of Szymborska that combines visual, music and sound. the project is in the German language.

Until all literature and music licenses would be paid, the project cannot be available online.

The trailer shows a glimpse of the project:

As a part of the 100 years remembrance of the first world war discussion, I have collaborated with my colleague Isabel Linnemann and we have designed this poster for a competition calling to stop violence and hate (Die Waffen nieder! Jetzt!).

The concept is dealing with a famous German term "Nullachtfünfzehn" that it's origins are from the first war world. MG 08/15 was a common weapon classification that was used by the German army at that time.

Nowadays the term is used to describe something common and normal. we wanted to express the "normality" of war in our world, that for some people, is unfortunately, still a daily routine.

"For some people war is still the norm"
