“Wir unterteilen die Welt in Raster, um uns besser in ihr zurechtzufinden, um sie besser darstellen und durchsuchen zu können. Unsere Wohnungen unterteilen wir, zumindest teilweise, durch Regalbretter.”

from PERSONALITIES. Hatje Cantz, 2016

“Back in the days, epic battles raged on MTV: Michael Jackson vs. Prince for King of Pop, Pepsi vs Coca Cola for the global soft drink empire. For all practical purposes Jackson struck a $5 million deal with PepsiCo that would shatter the record for celebrity endorsements and set the bar for every integrated marketing campaign to follow. While the King of Pop would demise slowly, the reality of brand marketing catched up all the quicker. ”

“Tal R chops magazines like vegetables. But despite containing mostly bite-sized snippets, few of his creations them are easily digestible. They have been referred to as visual goulash.”

from THE AGE OF COLLAGE 2. Gestalten Verlag, 2016

“Wenn sich Privatleben und Arbeit die Räumlichkeiten teilen, dann bedeutet das Freiheit. Aber auch ständig Krümel auf einem Schreibtisch, der gleichzeitig Esstisch ist.”

from HOMEOFFICE. Iconist, 2015

“Idiosyncrasies define identity. Yet paradoxically, much corporate design degrades companies to sterile proxies. As brands tend to be adjusted to prevailing expectations, valuable particularities dissolve into time-tested patterns and visual clichés.”

from LOS LOGOS 6. Gestalten Verlag, 2012

“Cars crash throughout the story lines of drama and video games, to be watched from remote-controlled safety or steered with joysticks in technology’s remove. The world has watched Jackson Pollock, James Dean and Lady Di perish in wrecks. Reading about car crashes in the news, we empathise with their victims, yet their tragedies feel remote. We are “adepts of proximity without risk”, as Susan Sontag once put it, but strangely insatiable. Like junk food, we tend to consume tragedy in supersize portions while gaining nothing in substance.”

from AT THE CROSSROADS. WIP Brand Book, 2013

for CARHARTT WIP x PELAGO. Collaboration Slogan, 2016

“Es steckt das Wörtchen egal im Regal, doch im Grunde ist jeder Gegenstand in den Fächern dort aus irgendeinem Grund. Während die Gegenwart in Form von Gegenständen auf Sideboards und Schreibtischen herumfliegt, erzählen unsere Regale von Vergangenheit und Zukunft zugleich.”

from PERSONALITIES. Hatje Cantz, 2016

“On the one hand, we have soft shapes and the sensual process of sanding sculptures by hand. On the other, the brutality her chainsaw blade. People have asked her to do performances with the machine. She refuses. And yet, the heavy tool has become the artist’s involuntary trademark. Claudia Chainsaw Comte. Apparently the image is too imposing to ignore.”

from THE SUBJECTIVE DIRECTORY. Self-published, 2015
