7 Mary Street

My late grandparents’ home, a treasury of many lives. Four folding maps, uniting a house and interwoven memories. Diary entries by four generations shape the typographic floor plans, ranging from my great-grandfathers’ solid fundament to the airy attic strung together by my own memories.

Intermediate diploma project in communication design at Braunschweig University of Art, supervised by Prof. Ulrike Stoltz and Prof. Klaus Paul, 2005/2006.

Publication and Exhibition

This work was featured in Ulrike Stoltz’ publication “Kreuz & Quer / Hin & Her” on zapping or non-linear reading in books as part of the chapter Topography/Cartography, titled as Memory.1 I’m delighted to see 7 Mary Street in such good company as the diploma projects “Bild und Wirklichkeit” by Vera Grönegress and “Topoi” by André Baumunk.
