photo aspect ratio

5:4 and 6x7  —  aspect ratio in photography

My photographs are exercises for myself (my eyes) in finding balance and proportion. They are not about current events, authenticity or contemporary photography. – In most cases the more square aspect ratio is important for balance.

saint mary of subcontracted labour

My fake draft for a stained-glass church window
Both the church and the artist fondly hope to get increase in prestige by a stained-glass window deal. – And on both sides it is hypocrisy in terms of motivation.

Two Sculptures

brush strokes, finally

Later I realised Photoshop builds its brush strokes just the same way from little circles inside the stroke's structure. — I invented for myself this basic principle of digital paint strokes not knowing the insides of Photoshop.

my 3d deadlock

2008/ 2009 I tried to preserve some 3D aspects in my graphical work and to turn the computer-generated 3D shapes into decorative plane structures. But in the end 3D was a deadlock for graphic art.

east-west manifesto

人们说艺术是什么,艺术就是什么。
成功建造登月火箭或发现青霉素,这与意见看法无关。
艺术反而相反——如果什么东西没在社会上被大肆宣传,那它就不是艺术。所以艺术是非常有依赖性的。——艺术根本不自由。

cutty stool

Two prints that show the difference between effort and art. The comparison was a harsh eye-opener for me. "Cutty Stool" was my first (within five minutes made) drawing on a comuter (after a few test strokes on a Photoshop canvas) ..

foreign. strange. alien.

Robert Walser:  "Plötzlich gingen die Wände... Ein Wald von Eichen flog herein..., aber ich sank: der Felsen war weich wie ein Stück Tuch, gab nach, senkte sich mit mir, dem Klammernden, dem Abgrund zu."

ITER  —  das letzte experiment

Bau der experimentellen Kernfusionsreaktoren ITER und Wendelstein 7-X.  —  Jedem ist klar, dass die bewilligten 10Mrd EURO unbedingt für das Gegenteil von ITER auszugeben wären. Nicht der Wissenschaftspolitik.  (it's in German) 

neurowissenschaftler

das denken existiert nicht ..

..nur die Synapse existiert. – Ist das ein neuer erkenntnis- theoretischer Ansatz oder schlicht Blödsinn? Es wäre das selbe, zu sagen "Die Existenz existiert nicht." – Meine Kritik zum 'Manifest der Neurowissenschaftler'  (it's in German)
