Technology is an important part of my life. That is why it is also an important part of my art. I love to experiment with new technology such as NFC ( near field communication), VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) to explore how it can improve
our lives. Due to movies and books, it seems that we now have a pretty good understanding of how technology will destroy us one day, but I believe technology can change our lives for the better.
My art is interactive, innovative and represents my point of view of how the future of art should be - interactive and accessible by everyone. That is why you can find the alien characters not just in selected galleries, but also on the streets of London, Zürich, Heidelberg, Berlin and many more.
But in the center of it all is you - the viewer. You are the most important part of it. Because you are my inspiration, my conversation partner and my supporter. Most of the alien characters I draw and their stories are inspired by people I've met. What I love most about being an artist is that it allows me to meet many wonderful people with exciting life stories. Inspired by their stories I imagine how our lives would be in a digitized society. Better, worse, or just different? Let's find out together. That's what my art is all about: Opening up a dialogue between me and the viewer about technology and how it can improve our lives.
You can scan the artwork by using NFC on your smartphone. How you can access NFC depends on the smartphone you use.
Android: You just need to turn on NFC in your settings. Therefore go to Settings and then search for NFC. Click on “NFC” and turn it on.
iPhone 7 and newer: You need to download an app. I recommend you to use GoToTags.
iPhone 6 and older: Sorry guys but it seems that you need a new phone :P Sadly, Apple restricted iPhone 6 of using the NFC functionality even if you have iOS 11 installed.
Remember the name to view the story again later by typing in the name of the alien in the Who did you find section.
