VARIABLE, 2018

Abstract traffic signs, which free themselves from their daily role, are an  attempt to give the otherwise reduced signs a character and to increase their information content The traffic system language developed at the beginning of the 20th century in the form of signs is transformed into ceramic material. The damp clay slabs were painted and immediately deformed, a random action creating the new shape of each object. Motifs created by the action of force can now be seen, such as a human body print or the relief of objects that create a connection to their surroundings on the street. The road sign and the object collide. The usual symmetry of typical street signs is dissolved in new objects. The hanging of the signs is an abstraction of normality. The newly created signs have their own body, different facial features and a humorous face. The new asymmetry of the created objects gives the signs new scope for interpretation, as the abstractions themselves are rooted in the associations. In a new reality, the objects radiate emancipation. They free themselves from their role of upholding the law.
