        Love in the automation age: Two self-willed robots are in a bizarre conflict between each other and their surroundings. ‘Vincent and Emily’ show the viewer the solitude of a partner relationship and simultaneously the involvement of the partners in society and their impulses. Analogue to human relationships, the two creatures stand for themselves and have to draw the line towards the outside.   As humans are only able to communicate their thoughts and emotions verbally and through their actions, likewise the two robots depend for their communication on their sounds via loudspeakers and motions controlled by their motors. The two technical creatures capture sounds and movements via sensors and react on those signals with own expressions. Just like in each human relationship it comes to misunderstandings: If Vincent sends positive signals by up and down movements, it is possible that Emily interprets even those signals as negative. Disagreement is preprogrammed. The unpredictable interaction and interplay between Vincent and Emily, caused by their tense relationship, trigger the viewer's individual projections. Intuitively he will be searching for similarities to particular patterns of human behavior. The movement of the robots is realized by a pulling system, consisting of three motors whose rotation is transformed into a linear motion via gear wheels and gear racks. Due to the elasticity of the moving metal shafts, the actions of the couple become at the same time smoother and increasingly unpredictable, which results in an additional momentum of its own and a lightness and ease within their interactions.

              After School Club is a one-week graphic-design festival in April 2012. Alongside workshops with internationally known designers, the club hosts talks, symposiums and more. Everything will be located in the classrooms which are not used during the semester break. The festival is free of charge. A continuous workflow and a constant reflection on design is essential for developing your own personality. Working on concepts and their realization in groups, intensive research as well as meeting other creatives is the main focus during the festival. We think this experience is important and forward-looking and therefore want to incorporate and share it with others. In this way the After School Club functions as a free platform for encouragement and motivation of collaborative working. Once a year we occupy our university and transform it into a student-organised working space. In an overall count of six workshops lead by renowned designers you have the possibility to build up your networks with other students and stay in contact beyond the festival. Join in! ASC is a project by koenigsklasse (http://on.fb.me/ABW7Nj) and is initiated by Alexander Lis (http://alexanderlis.com/) & Prof. Eike König (http://www.hort.org.uk/).

                  the trailer for the BIII Biennale Kick-Off. I used TVpaint, After Effects and a little bit of Blender. The sounddesign was made by Jonatan Schwenk and the loop on the cube is made by Merlin Flügel. Here you can find something pretty similar to a making of http://www.schwarzgrau.com/biii/

                    Jing Hua means flowers in the mirror in Chinese. It also represents the metaphor of unreachable things. a video projector is installed in a birdhouse, which is hung up on the branch of a tree. The projector casts the changeable figure of a flower vertically downwards on the white bowl. By moving and tilting the bowl, the image of an archetypical flower changes: its color, form, size and structure may be manipulated directly. music from mum - green grass of tunnel
