1st phase • »BICYCLE TOUR«
Daily bike trips across Lichtenberg – from Wartenberg to Karlshorst, from Friedrichsfelde to Fennpfuhl. And occasionally beyond the boundaries of the district too, to Thälmann Park, Weissensee and Köpenick. Continuous photographic documentation along the way. Reflections.

2nd phase • »INTERVENTIONS«
When viewed in more detail, Lichtenberg as a microcosm of Berlin is full of mysterious, abstract, symbolic and absurd tags and graffiti. My attention is drawn to them during my journeys, and my focus gradually turns to a possible expansion of these fields of vision in public space: within the context of my previous work, a concept emerges for temporary interventions with negligible material requirements that will create perceptible irritations in a subtle manner.


3rd phase • »FINALE«
At the end of my excursions, I leave behind a stroboscope-like geometrical-serial syntax in public perception, made up of elements can easily be modified, recombined or removed in a playful manner at any time.
