Phase Transitions

An installation reflecting the stability of a constant change.

The term describes the shift between states of matter, a change commonly seen in nature and technology. "Phase Transitions" artwork is executed as four wall-mounted frames — three display arrows made of light, each in a different element. Stable led light shines through a solid acrylic sheet, pulsing laser beams are visible thanks to evaporating liquid, and an evolving projection transmits through the air.
Both light and arrows are a common navigational aid, universally used regardless of languages. The arrows point the visitors (literally) the right way, towards the fourth frame located at the end of the room: it is a mirror, which returns the visitors' attention to themselves. In the end, it is us who need to make the changes. Read more about this project.

Balance

"Balance" takes the act of "balancing through life" into a literal sense, as it offers visitors to navigate on narrow elevated profiles between sculptures representing productivity, leisure, health, relationships, finances, and spirituality.
Parts of the sculptures' surface are not treated, to reflect that some areas can have imperfections even when balanced.

Steel, Polyurethane Foam, Paint.
~400x300x45 cm

Morph

Gradual change, from one thing to another.

gypsum, 35x40x75 cm

 

The conclusion on good or evil profoundly varies among individuals and groups. Political views, weather, religion, immigration, to name a few, the same coin always has two sides. "Duality" explores polar issues, pros and cons, and the grey area in between, through a two-channel digital projection screened on a semitransparent canvas in a room, around which visitors can walk and literally "take a stand," as each side of the canvas portrays a different attitude. Read more about the project here.

Bikes Make Dresden

Dresden, the capital of German state Saxony, is a bike-friendly place: flat, with efficient infrastructure. Locals are making good use of it, and so the bikes form an integral part of the city’s vital culture.

"Bikes Make Dresden" is an installation artwork which takes this phenomenon literally, representing the downtown map of Dresden entirely out of bicycle tires.

100x130 cm

Time

An interactive AV installation that plays with humans’ perception of the world that surrounds them through concepts of optimism and pessimism. The viewers have full control to decide whether the vision will be calm and harmonic or chaotic and unclear, as they can adjust the character of the scenes and sound in real-time.
