This art book tells the story of the „round men” dating back to Platon. These men were split into two halves and are now on the search for their counterpart to re-create unity for a fulfilling partnership.

We feel that the orange cut in half is a significant visual for this project and consider this principle as trendsetting to achieve unity between humans and ecosystems and thus a symbiotic lifestyle. As the Spanish call they spouse the half of the orange (media naranja) this added another symbolic aspect to the story.

Photo art edition The sea does not suck, 2020

This art piece is a collaboration of the scientists Annika Guse and Silvia Urbansky and the artists Fabian Gasperl and Stephanie Guse. The idea and modelscaping is science-based while staging and photography evolved through an artistic process.

It illustrates the current over-exploitation of the natural resources of the Mediterranean Sea through human actions by staging an especially designed 3-D model of the Mediterranean Sea that is filled with jelly and straws. It reminds us of fun drinks at the beach during summer holidays, yet questions our attitude towards the use of marine resources.

To us, this represents the starting point of the project from which we develop new models for a symbiotic lifestyle.
