" festive "

I finished my studies recently (April 2019). Now I’m starting to go my own way outside of the university. As freelancer in the field interior architecture I work for different companys. Also i do some own projects.

My future vision is to get some knowledge of the practical world of design. Furthermore i will safe some money to start my own business in the End of 2020. Therefore the material background will be very important, becauseĀ  my business should act suistainable.

Material Narrative
I collected the tent poles after a festival (sputnik spring break) from an apokalyptical appearing campsite. It is a shame that people do a mess for partying and to have a good time. I like to to raise peoples awareness for this topic. To make concious for it by reuse them in a proper and appreciate way.

The final result could be instalations on the festival ground for the next year. Also it is possible to generate some simple furniture and objects like lamps or baskets.
