Cultural patterns and constraints of today’s society stimulate typical subjects such as stress, the unstoppability of time, life’s monotony and the constant delay of tasks. We rush hurriedly through this life with split attention and adjust our pace to the speed of our environment.
The hour glass illustration symbolizes the ephemeral nature of life. As part of the exhibition Zeit ist Held, it serves as a warning emphasizing that life is short and mankind should make the most of it. Apart from a framed A0 poster, the hour glass image is also available on T-shirts and cloth bags (screenprint).
