Since last year I‘m doing automotive interface concept & design together with my university fellow Hendrik Lührs‘ Weimar Office designlab. The drawing illustrates the matter our work is about.
Handmade gifs from the students of my drawing lecture. The subject was un movimento quotidiano / an everyday move. Within two sessions the students generated a lot of crafted animations. The artists on this page are: Noemi Biasetton, Elettra Bisogno, Marianna Carazzai, Diana Varlan, Aysiat Gamzatova, Matilde Merlo, Eugenio Moggio, Marianna Pasina, Federica Gasperat, Irene Borgese, Maria-Naomi Galavotti, Anna Martinuzzi, Ellen Keller, Martina Veider. Pls don‘t hesitate to contact me if somebody‘s missing.
some quick & dirty handmade gif animations for my drawing class. Wanted to try it out before I ask my students to do it.

First official approval of my drawing skills
Since October 2012 I am teaching conceptual rendering (rendering concettuale) at the Faculty of Design and Art, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. The subject is about using freehand drawing as an appropriate and contemporary method to express conceptual ideas efficiently and immediately within any creative process.
The Workshop »Orientierung und Identität am Beispiel Messe Bozen« had the scope to propone visions for a better service offer to the visitors, exhibitors and partners of the Bolzano Fair regarding the orientation at the fair. A group of eight students from the Faculty of Design and Art in Bolzano developed three visionary projects that were presented to the fair board on sept. 19, 2012.
It was a pleasure to lead this workshop together with Prof. Kuno Prey from the Faculty and Sibylle Schlaich, Berlin-based wayfinding expert and partner at Moniteurs design studio.
The workshop was organized as a joint-venture between the Bolzano Fair and the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.
Workshop Participants: Inga Brown GB, Jacopo Drago I, Sandra Sordini I, Carina Ostermayer D, Liviana Osti, I, Beatrice Tamagnini I, Andreas Trenker I, Julia Vogt D.
My friend Oliver Oppitz was the official photographer of Bolzano Festival in 2010. This year I had the pleasure to support the initial /conceptual phase of his exhibition »play« about the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester. The exhibition took place in the garden pavillon of Hotel Laurin in Bolzano.
After three years of use and shortly before its dismounting I finally managed to take a photo of my selfmade kitchen in Bolzano.
