Hi there,

 

 

many thanks for visiting my website, welcome =)

 

Since my new website is in progress I want to tell you here in a few words what i'm busy with at the moment and mainly what drives me to do what I do.

 

 

------

 

** As a trained master craftsman in cabinet making I see a chance to use craftwork as a medium for social interaction and a way to enable people to influence their environment. Guidance tools + a set of workpieces + a strategy of activation allows young, handicapped, old people to be part of a process of making in an organisational context or in privat.

www.from-o-shop.com I'm super happy that Festool and Stimuleringsfonds Creative Industries trust and support my contribution.

 

** The time during the covid-19 restrictions made my friend and me think about a bench which encourages people to extend their personal livingroom and experience the urban enviroment with a carry bench which can be made by a local craftsman or constructed following the provided manual.

** Also inspired by the covid-19 restrictions I feel driven to help to create a way for people to experience a "give and take" culture in order to protect vulnerable people and also inspire a meaningful and open human co-existence started with www.itshelp.info our team now is supporting www.machbarschaft.jetzt

 

** We share a similar intention and want to bring them into action, that's why a few friends and me just teamed-up and started doing.. for example this.

** So many cars still driving with too many empty seats... As a union of many initiatives  we are aiming for a better accessibility and safety in ride-sharing. I'm part of the union with www.mitfahrscheibe.de

 

** To address topics about consumption and engagement through objects and installation. Interfaces clashing in www.empties-gamble.com and www.pakked.eu is showing the irony of uselessness. By questioning various way of engaging with an ikea stool IKEA 2.0 –make and IKEA 2.0 –assemble helped me to understand qualities of the impact of making and assembling. Tandem-Tools proposing to look at tools in a way to create more guidance in a making process. www.impulse-tool.com is looking at how empathy can triggered. I'm willing to find a way to let these work speak in exhibitions or other contexts.

 

** Next academic steps, should help me deepen my curiosity about researching the topic design for/by openness and engagement with applied design projects I'm doing.

We can be also friends in instagram, twitter, linkedin or facebook in order to learn from our networks. I'm using instagram-stories to give some impressions about my daily activities.
