Making Of: Art in Time Lapse

“How long does it take you to make a sculpture?” I am often asked. I don’t know.

In any case, longer than in my time-lapse videos on Instagram and Facebook.

«Four Directions»: testing an idea
On this small cedar tree, I brought an image from my head into wood. In doing so, I wanted to find out whether the idea could also be realised on a large scale: several people side by side as a band around a large tree. It’s much easier on a small scale; I can easily move the wood higher and lower and work on it from all sides.

In large scale, the idea would have to be adapted a lot. Maybe I’ll try it one day…

«Four Directions» has its first appearance in the lobby of the Hotel Saratz Pontresina, where I was also a guest in the outdoor area in summer 2022.
