Etna and so-called "Etna flower", according to Googles and Chatgpt4 2024 a "typical" Etna plant. After detailed research Etna flower is not native to Mount Etna. It grows in completely different continent. The work Etna Blossoms describes the search for home and origin. Painstakingly portrayed them over many hours, posted them, received benevolent comments from the local family and erased the original drawings in a few seconds. But the once drawn Etna blossom remains, it pushes through. A work about origin and migration and the fallibility and stereotyping of algorithms that contribute to the spread of misinformation, promote the formation of filter bubbles, enable manipulation, are opaque and reinforce existing prejudices.

MOSAIC Absurdity
Feb 2024, Mosaik Drawings, Glassstones, Papers 170x170cm



MOSAIC Absurdity, serie,
Angela Merkel, Ursula von der Leyen – Cutout –, Feb 2024


The series „Mosaic Absurdity“ portray a selection of powerful and influential individuals, politicians, entrepreneurs, and public figures, depicted in positive settings, both as children and adults, laughing and playing amidst whimsical, cheerful animals and fairy-tale landscapes. The artwork underscores the powerlessness of the average person, highlighting how a small elite group can wield significant influence over politics, social media, AI, chatbots, and search engines. They shape algorithms to their advantage, controlling history, laws, and technologies. Through targeted advertising campaigns and curated content, these elites determine which information gets prominence. By employing PR and AI experts, they enhance their visibility and control public narratives. Lobbying efforts further allow them to set guidelines and standards for AI and search algorithms, ultimately shaping public perceptions and search results to serve their interests.

SIX FINGERS, AI – MOSAIC, acryl/graphite on paper, 23x35cm, Feb 2024
MOSAIC, blue and red, Collage Drawing 35 x 23

Statistically, the most popular and best-selling works according to AI are predominantly blue and red. The work „Blue and Red“, a collage of plain blue and red tracing paper, symbolizes the over-reliance on AI and its algorithms. Algorithms often develop faster than ethical guidelines and regulations, which can encourage problematic decisions. They can produce biased results when trained with biased data, leading to discrimination and reinforcement of existing biases. Without clear transparency mechanisms, it is difficult to hold those responsible accountable. Algorithms can be used for mass surveillance and invasion of privacy, and collected data can be misused. In addition, the automation of jobs can lead to job losses and economic uncertainty. The economic benefits of algorithms are often unevenly distributed, leading to greater social inequality. Algorithms are vulnerable to manipulation and cyber-attacks and can fail unpredictably in safety-critical applications, posing significant risks.

Abstract paintings with macrocosmic and microcosmic elements. Organic, cellular representation of small, floating particles that expand into larger structures and dimensions, giving the impression of infinite, cosmic space. The paintings reflect the fundamental principles of self-organisation and emergence, which are effective on both a cosmic and cellular level, the universal structure and complexity that underlies all levels of existence and encourages in-depth reflection on the inherent unity and social responsibility that lies in the tension between individual autonomy and collective influence.

MOSAIC MOTHERS LOVE,

The ability of animals in the wild to care for their offspring is threatened by a variety of factors. The preservation of natural habitats, climate protection measures and protection from human interference are crucial to ensure the survival of offspring and the continued existence of species. Mother’s love plays an essential role and is often the key to the survival of the young in a rapidly changing world. The Mother’s Love series is a mosaic drawing that is constantly growing, its arrangement is arbitrary, the individual pictures should be in a clear sequence. Recognizable. As soon as they are jumbled up, as soon as they are out of order, the motif is lost. Indicative of the daily struggle to hide, of the animal and its offspring searching for order and security.
