50 tiny artpieces for KuKuKo
A coorporation with Storybox guG and Machwerk e.V.
Creating an art object about a story playing in a cemetery was a special gift for me, as I associate the cemetery “Südfriedhof”in Munich itself with some happy memories.
The object itself had to be small so it would fit in the tin, and reproducible with a limited edition of 50. In addition, Momo’s story about happiness had me pondering and images of this cemetery in its quiet pleasant atmosphere came up again and again.
My idea behind this artwork
Anyone who has ever been there in the spring knows them, the breathtakingly beautiful daffodils that cover the green spaces. A pure moment of happiness swells when you think about it and remember the object, in the crowd, on the one hand, these fields of daffodils and on the other hand, rows of graves behind and next to each other. Symbolizing the focus on happiness, I chose a red dot on white. The leaves are transparent and give us a play of light, they want to say: just look at your happiness, there it is! Last but not least, a pen as a flower style to give you the opportunity to capture your moments of happiness, because the most beautiful thing about art is to participate!
What is KuKuKo?
Interactive art&culture cans can be drawn from a can vending machine. In a tin there is a small object or a picture, an audio clip (QR code&link) and a suggestion to exchange with each other. The idea for this inspirational vending machine came from KaMü and Storybox gUG. Since then, the vending machines have been in place at numerous locations in Munich.
A limited edition of 50 of the lucky pen are now inside some cans.
