Homeodynamics

A work about how the world as we know it today has long lost its natural balance.

Every phenomenon, ecosystem or culture and also every relationship and even every single plant, animal and person relies on the concept of balance. There are always two kinds of energy present in everything. Humans carry a basic feminine and masculine energy.

In my work, I point out that in our modern, patriarchal society there has been too much of an ego driven and determinate energy in both men and woman alike and not enough compassion, empathy and awareness of the bigger picture.

In addition to an essay about the consequences of the imbalance and possible solutions for the way out of our misery i created a series of five handdrawn and then digitally transformed graphics that illustrate the two extremes and the optimal balanced middle, using symbolic colors, shapes and numbers.
