Residency @ Caicifang Porcelain Studio Beijing

From April till June 2021 I was invited to show my mosaic works at the Porcelain Studio “Caicifang”.

Mosaic for Awareness Raising on Climate Change Beijing

This video was created by Liu Liu, MosaicMoments assistant between October 21 and May 22. Please click on the image below to view the video.

This organisation is called GLOBAL ASSEMBLY We organised our own “Global Assembly” of the international community of Beijing and out of the discussion on that day December 8, 2021 the Climate Change Community Mosaic was created. It was absolutely overwhelming to have soo many people interested to participate to make the mosaic with their own hands, to search for an appropriate location …

Inauguration of Climate Change Community Mosaic 21. April 2022

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. 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 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!
