PlasticBag






Once upon a time there was a used plastic bag... 









This plastic bag has been designed by the artist and printmaker Günter Fruhtrunk (1923 - 1982) in the 70s. Since then, the abstract, blue iconic design shapes one of the most popular bags in Germany. 

The newspaper “Süddeutsche Zeitung” also refers to the “most well known-unknown artwork in the country”, since only a few people know the relationship between the shopping bag and modern art.

For the following screenprint edition, I decomposed the major elements of the bag in order to examine the traces of usage.

Skateboard

The following project is about used skateboards and the story behind the traces. 



Over a period of 8 month, a pre-sticked skateboard has been used by different riders to skate in their usual environment. Everybody with the same skateboard. 





The tricks have been documented, likewise the traces on the surface of the deck, which become more and more visible over the period of time. 







Simoultanously the traces have become the foundation for the screenprint edition.








Three moments have been selected, beginning, mid and end in order to create a tryptich in the original size of the skateboard.



Over the period of time more marks and scratches become visible and the colourful deck transforms into a monochrome grey colored subject. Working on the final design of the screenprint this process of transformation has been turned into the contrast:




the scratches and stickers become more and more colorful, giving an allusion to the fact that through the active usage, the deck starts telling a story and becomes alive.
