Dominium Terrae

"Be fruitful and multiply" are the words of the cultural mandate in abrahamic religions. Even though there are many different ways of interpretation, it is one of the defining cultural characteristics of the "western world". It is questionable if some interpretation of this has led to extreme interventions in nature – for the good of the guardian, of course. Nevertheless this leaves a lot of interpretation beyond the protection of "the creation".

This lamp is based on an image I have of the domestication and destruction of unique environments. Nevertheless it is a symbol, that we both worlds can coexist if we begin to treat the connections in a positive sense for both sides. Or in the words of the Dominium Terrae, this means to actually care for everything alike.

Shadow Theatre

A series of 3 playful lamps made from recovered metal elements found in discarded electronic products.

Each lamp is unique in its composition and carries an individual narrative created by the different elements that can be discovered.

The various cutouts of the metal elements create beautiful, organic shapes of light and shadow on its surroundings. A fascinating contrast to the rough and technical shapes of the elements themselves.
