About The Artwork

Round:one is the final visualisation of an album, which was made between 2000 and 2004 using ensó as a working title. The amalgamation of radio samples, guitar-riffs, electronic beats, synths and random recordings, which is dominant in the thirteen tracks of round:one, finds its end in the complementary video work made in 2007. Each title is accompanied by psychedelic / abstract and rhythmic pictures, which have not been created using the computer – in contrary: it is purely analog footage corresponding with the album's own character. On the one hand round:one oscillates between very intimate moments, showing mother-son-conflicts or desperate theories trying to explain the world (in both scientif and personal approaches) and public hymns of power, expressed shortly after nine-eleven. The work is not split up in separate tracks – they are merged into one another using noise. This amalgamation and batching reminds of a random reception of surrounding vibrations and signals in the air. The title of round:one focusses the album's position within a series of forthcoming works. It also clearly reminds of the Japanese word for "circle", which has a deep symbolic function in zen-buddhism. "Ensó" as a circle is painted in black ink over and over again using just one single flowing brush-movement. This way it is supposed to reflect the most general and pure form of being.

In his philosophical master’s thesis in 2011, he questioned the connection between universal epistemology and everyday issues; In 2015, the cinematically realized diploma thesis revolved around playful self-assertion strategies in contemporary art.

From 2016 he taught ethics and art in Dresden before he set out on a journey with his dog and walked to his birthplace in Romania. In 2018, on the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH), the socio-cultural project DÆTA, funded by the EU, the city of Detta and the German Embassy in Bucharest, took place there.
