Zeit für Experimente

31. December 2020

Ein span­nungs­ge­la­de­nes Jahr geht zu Ende. Ver­gleich­bar mit einer Erin­ne­rung aus dem Che­mie- und Phy­sik­un­ter­richt, wo wir nur dar­auf gewar­tet haben, dass etwas Unvor­her­seh­ba­res pas­siert. Etwas schief läuft, dane­ben, viel­leicht sogar in Flam­men auf­geht …

The party

2. December 2020

The last junc­tion whe­re we turn off. A long ave­nue lined with pop­lars indi­ca­ting the way. The gent­le rust­ling crunch of the gra­vel dri­ve­way anti­ci­pa­ting our host’s elbow bump, the flowers in the win­dow, red wine stains from past visits … What do we remem­ber after a par­ty?

Somersaults in our minds

12. November 2020

Buil­ding, rom­ping, hiding, giving free rein to ide­as, per­forming somer­saults in our minds: as child­ren, we play­ed games. And we were hap­py to. Espe­ci­al­ly when we play­ed tog­e­ther. We ima­gi­ned new things, flew in our thoughts to undis­co­ve­r­ed uni­ver­ses, crea­ted our very own worlds with all our sen­ses.

Where desire is born

13. October 2020

Riding bare­foot across the mea­dow in the morning dew, wild and wit­hout a sadd­le – dan­cing on the boat deck and fee­ling the last rays of sun on your face. Dive in. Take the plun­ge. Sail away to distant worlds. Real ones and the ones that spring from your ima­gi­na­ti­on. What do the­se posi­tively char­ged pla­ces have in com­mon? They gene­ra­te a buzz, a strong appeal.

In motion

30. September 2020

Pre­sen­ting pro­duc­ts, exp­lai­ning crafts, describ­ing pro­ces­ses and tel­ling sto­ries – all this requi­res a medi­um that com­mu­ni­ca­tes bet­ween the lines, a moving medi­um. A medi­um that mobi­li­ses space and dimen­si­ons and sets their two-dimen­sio­nal image in moti­on. Our inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry team uses dif­fe­rent forms of design to crea­te moving images that blur the line bet­ween uto­pia and ana­lo­gy.
