Virtual World

These days parents are very busy. They are tied up at their works. So they can’t pay enough attention to their children. Kids need to play and get attention, but who can give it to them? The tired and angry parents after a hard day? No. It doesn’t sounds good. So the only one who can play with them is their computer with its exiting games and web sites. But are all of the games and websites safe for the little children? Do the parents know anything about the virtual world, in which their children drown? If just one parent could image their kid in the virtual world as this little boy watching this poster is enough.

Basic salary, tray, baptisms, weddings, funerals and carols – those are sources of priests earnings. But according to what they say, they earn as much as doctors and pay ten times lower taxes. That sound pretty good. Divine life!

Press

Everyday the media provides information from all over the world. Whether plane crashes or breast augmentation, nothing remains unmentioned. Because of the large amount of information there is no more time to question the content. Did it really happen? Is the image real? Who wrote the article? How precise was the research? Is the statement true? We should not trust everything the media presents us.

Standby Fukushima

Die Katastrophe für Mensch und Natur in Japan ist nur wenige Monate alt, aber medial weitestgehend schon wieder vergessen. Das Plakat soll uns das Schicksal und die noch ungeklärten folgen für Mensch und Natur wieder ins gedächtniss rufen. Zugleich weißt das Plakat auch darauf hin, das die atomare Katastrophe in fukushima nicht behoben quasi nicht “abgeschaltet” ist.

Rape

Daily, throughout the whole world, not only in India, there are crime scenes of brutal rapes.
My work calls for the observer to reflect, but still gives them the freedom to imagine the extent of the serious injuries of a rape victim.
At the same time the ever increasing red tones – the strongest being the word “rape” visualizes the damage which is irreparable.

I’m afraid when my dad comes home!

My poster represent the fear that children feels when they are abused from their own fathers. The poster is like the shoe of the father when he is coming home and at the same time is like the door of the home with the afraid eyes of the child.

In your head

A little voice in our head. We trust it, as we feel it is our own. It knows what we want, what we need, what’s right and wrong. It seems we have made up our own mind, relying on the “independent” and “trustworthy” information network Facebook. Though it is merely an echo-chamber created by algorithms, which constantly gives us this affirmation.

Who uses facebook anyway?

1,4 billion daily active users, and 2,2 billion users in total. That’s more than a quarter of all people alive. In Europe and the US it makes up half the population. This enormous potential of influence is not only abused commercially, but also for political propaganda and manipulation.

Jobs for migrants

Making pictograms visible in urban areas of feelings and thoughts of those who left their home countries and live in a new country is the aim of migrantas. Key elements and similarities between the experiences of migration are emerging after a careful analysis of drawings from various workshops. The central motifs are graphically and artistically implemented by migrantas in pictograms – a visual, understandable language for all.

All a lie

The Poster has two levels of meaning:
A direct one – when the poster – surrounded by advertising messages – sticks on a billboard.
And an epistemological one – on the critical definition of the objectivity of the »Radical Constructivism«.
But a good poster explains itself.

To bare one’s Teeth

The idea was to show a positive expression of showing one’s teeth, because it needs courage to do so. Have you ever blunt your teeth on trying to achieve something? Mostly, it’s worth the effort.

Zeitgeist

The “Zeitgeist” poster was created in response to the news headlines from several online newspapers one day in October 2017. When scrolling through news portal sites, the discrepancy between positive and negative, important and unimportant news is incredibly large. On some days, this rapid change of moods causes discomfort. On other days, it triggers a state of indifference.

Just A Game

Unerringly like a striker is chasing the ball, the big business that is the driving force behind world’s soccer is hit by one scandal after the other. But time and time again there is only the yellow penalty card for the ones responsible. The spectators as well as the players are to tacit complicity. It’s time for a dismissal!

We are the people

This poster depicts a political slogan chanted in the Monday demonstrations in 1989/1990, as a protest against the GDR government.

Nowadays the masses have found the internet to voice protest and express their opinion. Anytime and immediately on can exert influence through online petitions, in comment sections or by hitting like buttons. The poster shows this shift in our culture of demonstration by a swarm of mouse pointers and thereby shows how a large number of individual elements can shape the public understanding.

Guns don´t kill people, hoodies do

The case of Trayvon Martin, a 17 year old black teenager recently killed in Florida by George Zimmerman (an armed neighborhood watch captain) and the related comments about the dress codes of an especially black and Latin American youth illustrates how the Conservative mind in the U.S.A. works. Guns can never be the problem, so something else must be the problem.
