„the essential nature of the matter lies not in objects, but in mutual relations. the relationships create matter.“

patterns and structures we encounter in everyday life. they are often so familiar to us, that they appear as invisible and insignificant. but the form diversity of nature is so complex and powerful, that it serves our studio as a permanent source of inspiration.

 


arose from alleged randomness, they are on closer inspection the results of a never-ending, self-organizational, evolutionary processes - of active and passive development. they occur in large and small, in the micro- and macrocosm.        

 

pattern are formed by systems, which in turn interact with other systems. from these mergers again superordinate systems arise, which create their own pattern. thus fractal structures are created. pattern, which seem to repeat permanently in their form irrespective of any scale.

 


shapes and formations say something about their properties through their structure. there are similar structures between pattern which are related, even if the parts do not interconnect in their originally function.
the illustrated pattern give a small insight into the studios long-term observation and documentation processes.
