noisescapes – Greetings from Austria

Series of postcards, 2012 – 2015

The series focusses on the phenomena of noise barriers.

It tries to emphasize how these walls divide the space and how they work as a somehow fascinating counterpart for scenic Austrian landscapes.

welcome

2013

installation / photography

Based on current phenomena, such as the reproduction of complete Austrian
Villages in China, in the project “welcome” monumental Chinese characters are
mounted at the abandoned railway station in ‘Lunz am See’ (Austria). This inoperable place, which has hardly any visitors, intensifies the absurd effect of the gigantic font installation. As most of the viewers can not read Chinese signs, quickly the question of the meaning comes up. In fact, it is nothing more than a translation of the name of ‘Lunz am See’, paraphrased a little poetically.
The typeface is aesthetically inspired by Chinese agitprop as well as advertisements.
