The climate flower depicts the threat of climate change. It’s floral shape “grows” with global warming. A scientific climate data interface provides monthly data of the global warming (in °C). The project addresses the question of how climate change can be effectively communicated & visualized, and why, despite the scientific obviousness, humans don’t do enough. The conflict is “Eco vs. Ego” and describes the daily compromise of individuals, companies and society itself to put own interests above those of the “worldly” or ecologically needed actions. The work is intended to lead viewers to experience the ubiquity of the threat of climate change by confronting them with real-time and real-life scientific data.
Mutual thoughts is a collaborative cross-social and cultural project that involves a random set of individuals, who are invited to participate. The project faces questions about life and society and simultaneously represents society by capturing answers on questions society is asking itself. All 21 questions have been received by different individuals in different life stages. We are often focused on our own thoughts, write our own journals, and live our own lives. Even though we live in one of the largest societies ever, everyone faces life questions by themselves. The idea behind mutual thoughts is to unite collective thoughts and knowledge in this booklet and then transparently publish the accumulated answers to each question. There are multiple copies of this issue being answered. The project evolves itself with its participants, there is no set goal or rule besides answering all the questions in your own way. The project is ongoing in a print version as well as online through www.mutualthoughts.online. In Autumn 2021, an exhibition with live participation is planned.

The project faces patterns that occur in classic nature and modern, artificial structures and tries to identify similarities and contrasts. Pictures are taken in Germany, Australia, Russia, Thailand, USA, South Africa.
