Gorilla

East meets West

East meets West’ by Gorilla is a comment on the clash of Western and Middle East culture. In the West, there has been a lot of discussion about prohibiting traditional Eastern clothing like the burqa and the niqab. There seems to be a fear of the anonymous. On the other end of the scale, exhibitionism, voyeurism and pornography is becoming an increasingly dominant part of Western culture. One can question oneself what is more offending to the other.

Form Phallus Function

Form Phallus Function is more than a pun – it points out and criticizes that architecture and design have been a male domain since ever. Simplicity in color and shape, inspired by the iconic bauhaus designs, hit the nail on the head and – in a charming and humorous manner – ridicule this ever lasting motto in design. Less women are never more!

Kirchenkultur

Unter Verwendung eines heute doppeldeutig klingenden Meisner-Zitates aus den jährlichen Soldatengottesdiensten im Kölner Dom wird die Sakralisierung des modernen Kriegsapparates und zugleich die sexualisierte Gewalt in der Kirche ins Bild gesetzt. Erst ein genauer Blick – etwa auf den Verlauf der Soutanenknöpfe – erschließt die Abgründe der Bildmitte. Der priesterliche Amtsträger selbst ist gesichtslos, auf dem Hintergrund der liturgischen Farbe der Bußzeit dominiert ein Schwarz ohne Zukunft.

Not always a game

This poster shows the game world of a small child with the central theme of war, the Kalashnikov, build out of blocks. War is not a game and children should not be tempted to the use of weapons, either caused by media in our western culture or as child soldiers in armed conflicts.

On the other Side

Trying to reach the other side of the Mediterranean Sea, hoping to find a better life, refugees often pay a high price; their own lives. They might reach another side, but a side, which does not have landing shores.

Coffins

The explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power station was the worst industrial accident of any kind in history. Tens of thousands of people have died, and there is more death to come.. Nuclear power’s waste is deadly, causes cancer and genetic mutations, and there is no known way to permanently contain, dispose or neutralize it. Building more reactors simply means death.

Maybe it’s yourself?/(Blame Loop)

We like to blame others, but… Everyone else is poisoning the environment, but… I’m not going to stop flying log distance, drinking from plastic cups, or get rid of my car. (It’s often the right-wing that loves to place the blame on others, and get offended when their own hypocrisy is unmasked).

Empty Ideas

Many African children (and non african) have chronic hunger. Situation that puts them at disadvantage and their life expectancy is very low. This terrible situation generates, among other undesirable consequences, the development of their life.

Drowning in Plastic

The increasing amount of plastic in our oceans changes the life of millions of sea creatures. They are literally drowning in plastic. Therefore, this idea raises the question how long it may take until this flood of plastic will be washed to our shores and drown humanity? Do not ignore the threats of plastic for our planet just because you do not see it.

Where the hell

Death penalty is a controversial topic. Despite our worldwide humanist society, there are still countries that try to atone for almost medieval ways of punishment of certain crimes by the death of the accused. The question of how it can be fair to repay an injustice, such as the death of a person caused willfully by the same injustice is something unacceptable and certainly incomprehensible. We believe that with thorough and conscientious thinking, everyone should come to this conclusion. The fact that Germany is no longer in use of this inhuman punishment shouldn’t distract from the fact that many other countries are still carrying out this procedure.

Cage

In many Islamic countries women rights are suppressed, there are too many rules and they have to dress in overall burkas that look like restraining cages, exposing only eyes that resemble a small prison window revealing a trace of light. This appeal is intended to loosen the restrictions on women.

Migraine

This poster is meant to visualize typical migraine pain.

Disturbances of the visual field (flickering before the eyes, flashes of light, blurred vision) are very common. Aside from this speech problems can occur. This is caused by disturbed signal transmission in the brain. Like an electric pulse a wave of disturbance is shot from a single across the cerebral cortex.

The letters M-I-G-R-A-I-N-E are reconstructed to create cuts, doublings and displacements. This is meant to recreate the feeling of migraine attack for anyone looking at the poster.

FIND

The message of my poster titled Find (or Lelet in Hungarian) is that if humanity will not change in its attitude towards the environment, then the legacy that left on Earth will be only the accummulated heaps of garbage. Waste that takes ages to break down and the overuse of plastics are becoming more and more important topics, in my opinion. My poster is meant to bring attention to this problem.

I would like environmental pollution to become our history and for humankind to strive to eradicate even its memory for the future generations.

No Description!

This poster is about freedom of speech.
It is the inalienable right of every human being who is denied of his in some countries.
The dove with beak tied is the metaphor of man under pressure that he could not express his opinions freely.

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.

Pornstick

The Age of the Selfies started long ago. Regardless of where we are or what we are doing, the only limit to seeing ourselves in our favorite pose, is the length of our own arm. Crafty inventors have become aware of this evolutionary disadvantage and developed the so-called »Selfie Stick«. It isn’t naive to imagine the suitable content, the quick-to-adapt porn industry will soon uncover for this new communication channel (just as they have done with Video, DVD, Internet, Google Glasses, etc.). Because at the end of the day, us selfie-junkies are our own private paparazzis, trying to capture our exposed selves.

To Peace!

The symbols are relative. Different functions can be named depending on where and how they are used. Sometimes a symbol has no meaning to someone. In the same way, concepts are relative too. Sometimes they’re not even concepts, they’re only words. Such as “Peace”.

Swarm of Drones

In a not too distant future everybody might be a drone’s target. With countless cameras and even weapons on board a drone might be worse than any insect you´ve ever felt disturbed by.
Once they decide to attack you it will most likely be too late for a court hearing. So watch out for this dangerous man-made species as there won’t be much we can do once they´ve grown.
