"Perspektive Neckarstadt - West" is an Urban Art Project created with my Colleague Paula Franke and a collaboration with the Community Art Center in Mannheim. Together we were making an experimental photography action, to bring people in awareness to their surroundings.
We gave 15 different people in different ages One way cameras and a mission to fill. 6 Cameras came back and
we have created an Exhibition from that Material. We have used different methods to visualize the results: Pictures, Newspaper, Postcards, Snow globe, etc.

"Kunstbegriff" is a new Analog Photography project that I am focusing on in the last months.
Working with the Mamiya Middle Format and Black and White film, I am seeking to create an experimental mix of Urban buildings, Nature and their relationship together in different exposure ways.
My Bachelor project ("Manche mögen Poesie") 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:
Snapshopts from: "Perspektive", "Eine version der Vorkommnisse", "Glückliche Liebe", "Das Schreibens eines Lebenslaufs", "Katze in der leeren Wohnung"
The Urban Hacking - social design workshop was taking place in June 2014 at the Hochschule Mannheim Design Faculty. We were discussing and dealing social issues, in which we wanted to put awareness of.
As a part of a group work, we have made some group actions. As an immigration city and the strength of right parties in the city, we wanted people to remember that the diversity of Mannheim is also its strength. Another idea was to built a Love path, where people have to be closer to each other as they walk in the city.
The workshop was held by Johannes Brückner.
