Remembering the good old times, during my studies of free art at the Academy of Fine Art in Munich the main source of building up knowledge was still very analog. The digital transformation especially influenced my work as an artist and inspired me to create objects by using digital manufacturing methods.
A close cooperation of traditional mold making and the reflective artistic transfer form the basis for a reliable way of working. Starting with the collection of ideas, researching materials, through to the entire planning and implementation with 3D modeling programs, the focus is increasingly on digital research and development. My machine park nowv consists of 20 3D printers with FDM, SLA and DLP technology, four laser engraving machines and two CNC milling machines.
My vision is to make use of the meanwhile obsolete paperfiles, who once had significant importance content wise. Although meanwhile they do not serve their actual purpuse as source of knowledge anylonger, they can be transformed into something else serving a different purpuse as a leading impulse.
The digital transformation still has to consider the importance of preserving human ideas and culture.
