Pachinko

Book/Risographprint
2013


We were required to do a booklet in five days after having only been given the table of contents. A visualisation by only seeing the chapters of the book. One title was Pachinko so I could anticipate that the book deals with japanese culture. I‘ve took the Pachinko game –which is the only legal gambling game in Japan and also a big industry– as the main visual theme for all chapters in this book. After finishing my visualisations of the titles, I‘ve learnt that the book was „Empire of signs“ by Roland Barthes.

Figure & Motion

Bronze & Plasteline

Klasse Vetter

This interdisciplinary class brought two rudiments of figurativeness together: Animated plasticinemodels from the figure animation and the classic figure casting in bronze. What both have in common is the idea of the frozen movement, to understand activeness as a single or a row of static conditions.
I found the movement of an old woman interesting, which I saw almost everyday from my window in the agency that I worked in. Everyday she was cleaning up the house and rattle the carpet. I choose this movement, the shaking of the carpet, for my stop motion film and my bronze figure.

Workshop with Prof. Ingo Vetter and Prof. Jürgen Haas.
