Between November 21 and April 22 the Climate Change Community Mosaic was created in Beijing. It was  a wonderful project that kept us busy and active for this good course – awareness raising about climate change.

My work in China – a retrospective

Dear friends, I have physically moved to Berlin now. It’s exciting to be in my home country.  However as always when I move I will not have a studio for at least half a year as my tools and materials are in transition in our container somewhere between Tianjin and Hamburg.

Inauguration of Climate Change Community Mosaic 21. April 2022

Please celebrate with us the transformation of words via symbols into mosaic art that is installed as a mural at the entrance of the German School in Beijing. We are in awe that we did it: a group of 55 people all dedicating time and energy to create with their hands a piece of awareness raising on their hopes and concerns about impact of climate change around us. We are still gathering photos and reflecting on how it became such a big and wonderful project. Stay tuned to hear more about it in the coming weeks!
