2017 - ongoing

In 2017 I started another series within this concept - the syllaBlEndings. syllaBlEndings are short verses fusing two (rarely more) words, positioned on three rows, as the last syllable of the first word is the first syllable of the second word and usually is positioned on the middle row. The two words in the syllaBLEndings share, have in common, belong together, are connected, mix, blend, meet, overlap, clash, penetrate each other, are Siamese twins, one is developing/growing into the other, the ending of the one is the beginning of the other, exist in symbiosis, compliment each other. A syllaBLEnding is a process. Often, the syllaBLEndings can be seen as a "the chicken or the egg" causality dilemma (what came first?), where the events represent reciprocally cause and effect.

Since May 2018, selected verses from the syllaBLEndings series are exhibited on light boxes in several public spaces in Graz, Austria. The verses are exchanged twice a month. To this moment seven light boxes at five locations are hosting the syllaBLEndings:

Verses on light-boxes in public space

Since May 2018 selected verses from the syllaBLEndings series are exhibited on light boxes in several public spaces in Graz, Austria. The verses are changed every two weeks. To this moment seven light boxes at five locations are hosting the syllaBLEndings: Steiermärkische Landesbibliothek, Cafe Stockwerk, Stadtbibliothek Zanklhof, Kulturvermittlung Steiermark and Cafe König.

After each change of the verses on the light boxes, photos are posted in the eponymous album on my Facebook profile, and on my blog under the label CDoupbles :: syllaBLEndings. Flyers with syllaBLEndings verses are produced and distributed in Graz.

My Blog

The CHAlleNGED GAMES blog was conceived with the hope to stimulate divergence thinking and challenge the viewer to rethink one’s routines and shift his/her perspective on the status quo.

The blog was initially  dedicated to the CHAlleNGED GAMES series and seeks for extended meaning in playing and its relation to aspects of human existence and production.

As with the time I started to experiment with another system - the language, to apply mathematical logic and seek patterns in words, in the last years my publications are mostly about this part of my work.

iGRAZ/Space Appropriators is a bilingual (English/German) book, collecting the visual documentation and experience of more than 25 interventions in the public space and some events in which the Space Appropriators were involved. For these few years the project accumulated significant, and I would allow myself to say, impressing visuals and knowledge, embodying divergence thinking and proactive attitude towards one’s environment.

As a manner of artistic creation in many of my recent works I employ existing urban situations, objects, visuals, texts and just add often a small detail, which significantly changes their meaning and/or function. book includes art works in the period 2004-2010, some still in progress at the time and some as ideas developed during 2010. The selection is made to guide the viewer through an artistic process that lead to the birth of ideas such as Space NRGZers and Dadissuasori.

The book ends with a couple of blank pages, which are to e filled in with sketches and ideas for new works employing the same approach.
