Design • Berlin, Germany •
“I have always been uncomfortably curious, which leads to the asking of too many questions, developing ideas, ideally making them visible, tangible, and discussable.”
Unraveled Artist Interview:
Q: What is your design philosophy? If you do not have one, please talk about that instead.
A: Design is visual communication, or to use the words of Saul Bass: “Design is thinking made visible.”
Q: What aesthetic or visual ideas affect you the most?
A: Patterns, materials, nature observations and mythology.
Q: How do you understand the interface between sound and visual?
A: They come together as two different ways of communication and interpretation based on the same subject.
Q: Briefly explain your creative process.
A: At the beginning I frame the eventual goal and when I get there as close as possible, it’s done. The purpose should always be communication.
Q: Do you believe in the process more than result or result more than process? Why?
A: Neither. Some processes even start with deconstructing results, and thus create new processes which create new results and so on. It’s more like a circle of creation that can have many offsprings.
Q: Why do you value being part of an independent artist community?
A: Because it is a space where people respect the unphysical and fragile nature of ideas.
Q: What is the range of methods, materials and styles you are most comfortable working with?
A: Graphic, typography and illustration, both manual and digital, photography mixed with graphics.
