Sculptures – Lucky Hermit

One day, Maneki-Neko decided to leave the humans in order to bring a happy future to the inhabitants of the ocean. There, it quickly adapted to the new environment and, being well respected by the marine
natives, was able to spread under the name of “Lucky Hermit” as an auspicious neobiont, overcoming borders.

From time to time, Lucky Hermit surprises unsuspecting fishermen, when it is lifted from the sea as bycatch. In this way, even today, in the shape of a “hermit- mermaid- maneki-neko-fossil”, it still makes many human beings happy too. 

Sculptures – Bubble Eggs

Bubbles that are created by underwater currents often take on an oval shape like eggs (the word “oval” actually contains the Latin word for “egg” – “ovum”). As it seems, round and elliptical forms are at the very core of nature’s power to create new life.

Our bubble eggs drift towards the surface and offer a protected sphere that encloses neobiotic life forms. These bubble eggs are fragile lifeboats that carry those new migrating species towards new
environments where they can hatch and thrive. 

Sculptures – Lugworm Poo

Lugworm Poo is an omnipresent element of the Wadden Sea. To the uninformed eye, it may just seem to be an excretion by an animal that feeds on sand, digests it and produces more or less random structures, resembling complex knots. Yet, in fact, these structures are really a language: poo is the way lugworms communicate with each other. Each type of lugworm poo has its own grammatical structure, its own meaning and expression. So while walking along the beach you might find appeals, questions and answers, offenses, declarations of love, heated discussions or jokes. Scientists have even found the first chapter of a lugworm poo novel, dispersed over five square miles of Wadden Sea. They really liked it and are now eagerly searching for the second chapter.
