Being here

Being here

Growing up in the the landscapes of swiss agriculture, we twins were inpregnated by nature and bliss. Shortly after this ecologically  intact landscape got destroyed forever by excessive, cheaply built and faceless profit-architecture. Politicians and consumers, city planners and architects are challenged too wake up : Birth-explosion & climate change  leading to a dramatic shortage of resources and millions of migrants, forcing to revolutionize architecture, city- and environmental planning by a conscious choice think and act also for future generations.

The old master builders knew about the secrets of plants, with their timeless laws, which have largely been lost with the acceleration of modernity. Intention in this project is a painterly approach through photography to capture the vital energy from different plants, suggesting the geometric patterns, operating as the same forces as in the cosmos, atoms or architectural structures. Plants as a microcosmos representing the macrocosmos.The Fibonacci sequence blends complex visual algorithms into seamless shapes with quantum fields of movement. Plants are here elevated as “transformative and sculptural abstractions” into the pure existence zone of everyday life and vice versa. It is an invitation to choose a more harmonious and sustainable way in a seemingly unrelenting globalization, that chooses long term destruction for short term profit.
