In times of Corona travelling by public transport over longer distances is difficult and stressful, if not impossible, which moves Berlin and Kreuzberg far away and unreachable – initially. So it’s natural, to look around, to find something nearby, some kind of replacement. In Essen, the neighbouehood around Isenbergplatz is, what comes closest to my […]
In days of Corona, when lock down is a problem for everyone, a colourful sign of hope, not only for school kids, is to be found in public space. Handpainted stones are placed everywhere, to connect people, who cannot come close together. A colourful snake of stones, which gets longer and longer, can be found […]

Styro seems to have spent hybernation with crafting. Now, after reawakening from the winter sleep, he seems to be on his way, to set his creatures free, wherever he stands or goes. And my Berlin friend finds them, even if not looking for something special. Nobody stays home in this bright weather.
I have no idea, how my Berlin friend is able to find those installations, to make me happy. This little guy, made by STYRO, seems to be in critical condition. Will he risk jumping off with his provisionally paraglider? And will his crash helmet prevent him from injuries? I spontanously named him Otto, because he […]
