THE THINGS WE LEAVE BEHIND | Spanien | England 2015 | 3 min. Ohne Dialog
The project highlights the impact of waste on our environment, resulting from the continuous overproduction of goods in our societies. The amount of waste is increasing and managing it becomes more and more difficult. Using the ‘mummy’ as a metaphor, the artist implies that the human presence is the catalytic changing force destroying the planet. In the video the human figure merges into its surroundings, until a complete metamorphosis has taken place, referring to the greater power of nature and sending a message of hope among the destruction.

PARTENZA | Kroatien 2016 | 3 min. Ohne Dialog
At the beginning of the 20th century, men from Croatian islands frequently migrated to South America escaping hunger and looking for a better life. The women stayed at home waiting for them to return. Inspired by the personal story of her grandparents, the artist masterfully depicts this very current topic with a minimalistic black and white aesthetics and structure.

The artist shows with his installation and video work the complex interconnections of the water cycle in the context of food production and transport industry. The water pipes, embedded in transport boxes, are laid out in a labyrinth – a net as an analogy for the globalised flow of goods. The question that arises is how we can positively design a regenerative circular economy.
