Imitation, Mimicry, Täuschung und deren EntTäuschung
Imitations surround me,
representation of a representation,
the desire to feel like I belong somewhere.
For many years I felt the unstoppable urge to search for my own hybrid third space a vacuum created by myself. A space in which the new status quo does not do justice to the opposites, no, but imitates them and presents them in its own form, function, and way of being. Deceiving and simultaneously disappointing the critically observing eyes which gaze from afar.
Through the design process from analog collages and sketches to trained AIs, I found a way to rethink my design process in a way that is hybrid for me. As a team in an exchange with technology to bring imitations from the digital world back to the analog.
As a climber and designer, to unite function with the desire for aesthetics.
To re-imitate imitations in my own way and to present
the act of imitation itself as a representation.
