Visual Communication


My main graphic projects are 2D animations that take today’s problems and shift them into the distant future. In this future, there are new unknown boundaries that are continuously expanded by my protagonists. I adapt the characters of the popular science fiction series “Star Trek” and let them experience new adventures in my future. In doing so, they have to solve the transposed problems in the sense of the humanistic world view of Gene Roddenberry, the creator of “Star Trek”.

The artistic video work is embedded in a stage set of the abstraction of an American living room and visualises Gene Roddenberry’s idea of bringing outer space into living rooms through the television.
