As a web developer and designer, my work often results in cross-media solutions. I tend to mix the media's typical practices with cutting-edge digital processing techniques. I am employed by the Kassel-based agency Dorfmeyster. Some of my projects from 2016 through the present are down below.

This website employs the Bitcoin Improvement Proposal №39 (BIP-39) as an experimental method to challenge users to type a given phrase as fast as possible. While this practice is common on websites testing typing speed with ten fingers, these words also serve as mnemonics for numeric representations, acting as keys to a crypto wallet that will not be generated but assigned. Essentially, users are manually "brute-forcing" the Bitcoin blockchain by hand while also improving their typing skills.
Although the seed phrase comprises only 24 words, the number of possible combinations is endless, amounting to 2048²⁴. So, there is a minute possibility of stumbling upon an existing wallet, but in reality, it is impossible.
This tool generates a valid seed phrase, which theoretically could be used to store value. But, it is strongly advised against utilizing this phrase as an actual store of value, as it is one of the least secure ways to do so. For more information, refer to the provided guides or the original abstract of BIP39.
The 2048 images displayed on the website were scraped from Google and might include offensive content. If you find any problematic images, please let me know, and I will manually change them.
For a few years now, I have been taking notes on people who strike me or impress me. A list of people whose careers seem to pique my interest has been compiled from a few names: almost all of the individuals gathered have an unusual, sometimes contradictory curriculum vitae that is rapidly approaching a turning point and frequently ends in remarkable circumstances.In this context, I repeatedly came across the term escapism.
This book is my attempt to interpret the concept of escapism and back it up with my observations.
My finals were held at the Feiertag gallery in Kassel. The book was launched on July 17, 2019.

Autohaus Autohaus e.V. is an association dedicated to supporting art and culture. The team is made up of graduates of the Kunsthochschule Kassel and the University of Kassel.
Originally, the association came into being when we saw the possibility of temporarily using a vacant car dealership from the 1950s that was in need of renovation. Before documenta 15, we wanted to create an additional place for artists and art enthusiasts. The space became an art space, a place for exchange and events with a diverse program.
After the lease expired, the team moved out of the car dealership and moved their activities onto a boat to continue during documenta 15.
As a platform for young art and club culture, TOKONOMA organizes and hosts talks, screenings, exhibitions, and club nights in Kassel. The concern/wish of the young, non-profit association is to reflect on contemporary themes of art, film, and music and to support and boost young artists in these areas. In spring 2012, the TOKONOMA collective renovated a former retail store on the Frankfurterstraße in Kassel into a multifunctional space; the TOKONOMA Apartment.
On a regular basis, on Tuesday nights, various events take place, and monthly exhibitions in the shop-window of the apartment are organized.
I made these posters monthly for one season. They announce the upcoming events. In its artificial structures, each poster features the current monthly gradient and a sneak peek at the following color scheme.
Cooperation of seven universities with excursions in the northern Ruhrgebiet and two one-week interdisciplinary workshops in Marl, summer academy, theoretical work & research with subsequent exhibition in the former empty school in Marl, Germany.
Neues Museum Marl is designed and built in its function as a summer academy and exhibition space in the vacant main school. In the second step, the architecture of the Ruhrmoderne was examined and analyzed. On this basis, a reinterpretation of a the building or the reinterpretation of a basic idea of a building as a design for the present takes place. In the exhibition IBA 1967 the reference project, as well as the new design, are shown.
Through the perception and intervention in Marl and the teachings of Karl Gerstner, a graphic designer which was active in the 1960s, a cross-sectional form and grid system has been created. Thus, the often brutalistic architecture is reflected in the media we design and is reinterpreted and questioned by the content and the design.
The concept and design was developed and created together with Joscha Bauer & Nico Buurman
