I have a deep passion for trying to tackle the climate crisis.
I consider it my way ocontributing to that, by acting as a communicator and advocate for the greatness of change and alternatives that lie ahead.

I want to utilise the ability of art to tap into people’s emotions and reach their guts – to influence a decision-making process and to motivate people to fight apathy and to find perspective. What I personally like so much about art, as a tool, is that it can easily be used to show a way of growing out of, instead of fighting against, whatever has to be changed.

This follows the principle that whatever you give your attention to will expand.

It is the perfect possibility to generate a new reality by feeding people‘s imagination – making something that might be yet invisible visible.

“Homo sapiens rules the world because it is the only animal that can believe in things that exist purely in its own imagination, such as gods, states, money, and human rights.”,

says Yuval Noah Harari in his book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind; hence, all systems on our planet earth (except for the ecosystem) once were just ideas in someone‘s mind who then acted upon them, convinced others of the ideas‘ strength, and therefore created a new reality.

With all of my projects, I aim to contribute to creating such a new reality; one that is not based on exploiting people and planet, but one that is built on social, sustainable, and equitable values.
