"Everything has one end only the sausage has two" - a wisdom stated by one very well known German songs. And so there it is - the end of my work year and the beginning of an excellent time. A time which allows to turn off all of the disrupting devices and start enjoying whatever will cross the way. I am looking forward, and I can say for sure, it will become significant and seen here afterwards, once vacation time will be over.

See you soon

When there is a beginning, there will be for sure also an end! As the pride of creation, it is also us who decide for many things when to start and to finish. We have the power to rule over other humans but also over nature and how we surround ourselves - we got the magic wand which had no mercy for this beauty.

When abandonment meets demolition


Beit Jabotinsky in Tel Aviv
Once upon a time, there was a little building standing in a street. It was neither fancy nor did it gain utmost attention because of its look. It was a meeting point for several political groups which decided the building's future. It worked its way through to the sky until it finally reached the sky. Until today, it unquestioned shows what was thought to be "hip" back in the 1930ies.

Development ...
The forbidden fruit is the sweetest. Only three months ago, I could convince myself for the first time that this theory does not exclude my work – and here, we go again ...

The urge for a tomato which isn’t yours


The beauty of little things
In recent times, we are buying new things faster and are kindly encouraged to speed up with our shopping. By values, we believe to gain satisfaction and a positive response of who and what is important for us. On our never ending journey to the ultimate goal of satisfaction, we forget the fact, that what we own and what we can do ourselves has value, too.

Unused public phone
In former times, it was very complicated, expensive or impossible to perform non-verbal communication. The invention of the phone changed the world. But the world changed, too and therefore public phones lose more and more ground. Today, they are not really needed anymore and so they relegated to a lonely existence.

Travelling back in time



Playing mindgames
In the last decades, the skyline of central Tel Aviv grew up high and higher, leaving all of the small and antiquated buildings behind which once had been the figurehead of the city.

Most of the people will fight for what they love. They do not want to lose it, they enjoy it and they invest much work, time and passion in what or whom they love and so do I. But this passion can quickly turn into anger if you figure out, that someone else has stolen your art.

Someone stole my art …

Order and care have a special meaning to many of us. Together they form a wonderful composition which many of us highly appreciate. Anyways, this ensemble helps us to organise things, life and guidelines and causes us to take care for our loved ones.

Leftovers in Tel Aviv

Humans like to design, to shape and to adjust things according to their ideas, needs and imagination. But also we have the power to change a place from being sterile to a friendly and welcoming spot. We bring them – the humans – fresh oxygen and produce their food while looking amazing. Honestly, I think we are quite sexy!

Intoxicated – The life of a plant


Kit und Klampfe CD
In the last few months my work was been shown in several media and I was given great opportunities to progress my own work and this is amazing! I am sure that the coming months will not be less interesting as there are already many things in planning.

Street-art Florentine
Most of the southern neighborhoods of Tel Aviv are seen as poor, less developed, cheap and occasionally dangerous. On the other hand, they show the ability of people, which come from different cultural and educational backgrounds, to live and deal with each other. They also design the look of houses, public spaces and form its special vibe.

City life often is a synonym for living in surrounding of streets and other houses, made of concrete. - Urban gardening forms a counter movement and shows how nature makes its way.

Dead Sea - Ein Gedi Beach 1
From time immemorial, nature manages to surprise humanity by offering life in a surrounding which seems to be a synonym for death. One of these surprises can be found at the Dead Sea. It is called Ein Gedi. Those who tried to find a nice tourist place at the Kibbutz' beach this year got a big surprise.

Neve Zedek Tower (Tel Aviv, Israel) 1
Tel Aviv is a young city which has just been found 106 years ago. For being such a youngster, it offers a huge variety of architecture, styles and influences. In 2007 the Neve Tzedek Tower was build. It radiates to be superior – a poor representation of the ability to buy nature to exorbitant prices.

Shadows over Florentine



Dead Sea - Sunrise above left overs 1
The Dead Sea is the lowest attainable place on earth. On my first trip there I have been pretty much excited. Never before I had been in the desert and experienced a deep water source I don't have to swim in. Unfortunately I have been travelling with a tourist group. That's why my first time was quick, planned and less enjoyable. But I learned and went back with my camera.

A sleepless night at the dead sea …


Modern living in Florentine (Tel Aviv, Israel) 2
Most of the big cities have a lot in common and function similar, poorer areas for instance. They are defined by their unrenovated buildings, cafes, bars and alternative shops and inhabitants with less income. Most likely one will find young people living there - They design the area. They're responsible for its vibes and keep it alive. Like in Tel Aviv's Florentine.

Separation


Left overs ... 2
Home is the most intimidate place in modern world. One's home reflects the personality, taste and history of our life. By designing our own places, we are trying to create a place which fulfils our needs, taste and security - as we lock the door. We are trying to make it a cozy and comfortable place. When we enter it and close the door after us, we are joining the security area – in which we normally can decide ourselves about rules and changes. Sometimes, we are unable to take over the control, we loose it and have to live with the consequences … However, in those situations we are shocked, helpless and feel like being in a big lake and unable to reach the shore.
