flight has kept me occupied for many years. by building kites i give this fascination form. the kite - a crucible of crafts, material, tradition, knowledge, technology, art and freedom - creates a large workspace. in my atelier in göltschach i build kites based on sketched ideas, from split bamboo, paper and ink. the technical process and the knowledge of the laws of flight shape the result as well as the design. when the kite takes off and ascends, it changes my scale in the landscape, but its presence in it leaves no trace.

"i believe it can be proved to me a thousand times from valid foundations that something is good or beautiful, but it will all be the same to me as I will judge solely on whether its presence makes me feel a rising or a sinking. whether I'm awakened to life or not."
