Another sculpture made with the copper from the roof of the Beethoven Hall in Bonn, which is being renovated. Thanks a lot to the Beethoven Foundation for providing the material to the Alanus students!

Kökar, August 2017:
I have no idea what I will do with these 3D scans taken from negative corners in Kökar, here an impression in 2DÖ
starting with icebergs, to volcanic stone and architecture..
We had the nice opportunity to exhibit in a house that was just finished being built. Before the people moved in, we sculpture students moved in for 2 days with site specific work, sculpture, installation, photo and so on. Since no walls are parallel in this house ,I could meet my corners and the tetrahedra again, these corners in stone I had encountered on the islands this summer.
It is not getting very big, but it is very invasive and many gardeners regretted their decision to plant it. Many thanks to the Gesamtschule Hennef West, for letting me cut their bamboo in the school garden and to Silke to provide the transport, it was impossible to drag the 4-5m long poles home by bike or in the tramway..
Since the Beethoven Hall in Bonn is being renovated and the copper roof is replaced, the sculpture students inherited the dismantled, tarnished old roof plates. Eventually there will be an exhibition in the next years of artworks made out of the 65 plates( not only transformed by me;).
This is plate no 1:
