Exploring all aspects of wealth in its fascinating beauty and polarising raw reality.
The gold cycle pays tribute to the hypnotic effect and impact of gold in our life. Gold is desirable due to its rarity and everlasting beauty. Quality and value of gold are undisputed. Throughout history high cultures have accumulated gold. Numerous other currencies have existed throughout centuries, however gold has never lost its desirability.
The gold cycle reflects the pure economic power and timeless beauty of gold as well as the large variety of valuables associated with gold.
Over 4,000 years ago the first diamonds were mined in India. The Hindis attributed so much power to diamonds that they even placed them in the eyes of the statues of deities. The ancient Greeks and Romans believed that diamonds were tears from the Gods and splinters from falling stars. That would explain the high emotional value of diamonds.
Grow it, protect it, spend it, share it!

black & white
This theme visualizes the mystique of the "black box" converting input into output and the uncovering truth and insight represented in the "white box". Both are omnipresent in our lives. As we are facing and using more and more complex systems in private and professional life but barely know how they work, the black and white box cycles are the ultimate reminders.

liquid lifeThis theme visualizes the glistening, colourful and magnificent world of sealife in an expressive and playful way - inspired by countless diving sessions.
It’s hard to imagine a more forbidden place than the ice cold, pitch black, crushing environment of the deep sea. It’s even harder to imagine that any creature can live there. The overwhelming variety of animals - including all kind of fish, corals, crustaceans and medusa - which have adapted to this challenging life - has always attracted me.
Many of these creatures look alien to us. Some have huge eyes - or eyes on long stalks - which capture the dim light still left in the deep sea. Others have a huge mouth. Their gaping jaws - often filled with fanglike teeth - are open all the time, ready to capture whatever morsels fall from above. Yet other deep sea animals have transparent bodies, enabling them to blend right in with the water.
The medusa exists for more than 700 million years. The medusa has no heart, no brain, no blood, yet it is alive. Its striking and terrifying unrealness and blatant elegance in movement makes it the alien dancer of the oceans. A specific kind of medusa is known as the only creature ever achieving potential immortality. This is simply astonishing!
colors & forms
Exploring and encountering the metaphysics and impact of colors and forms in our lives. From playful to scientific
approaches the theme colors & forms is an endless journey into our consciousness and how we individually perceive
the world around us.
Is color in the eye of the observer or is color objectively real? Would colors still exist in the world, even if no one
was around to see them?
Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other color. It’s the color of happiness, and optimism, of enlightenment and creativity, sunshine and spring.
Red is the color of extremes. It’s the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure.
Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood, energy and primal life forces, and most of
red’s symbolism today arises from its powerful associations in the past.
Blue is the favorite color of all people. It is nature’s color for water and sky. Supposing the color blue was removed from the world, specifically the sea and sky...what color would the void be filled with?
Endless intertwining lines and colors. Play & enjoy!
Empty your mind.
Be formless, shapeless,like water.
Put water into a cup and it becomes the cup.
Encounters are experiences.
- and ultimately nothingness.
