I tried to quit, but I couldn’t. Maybe I crawled too many dungeons when I was a child or perhaps I spend too much time building pirate ships with Lego bricks. My mind is partitioned, constantly reshaping the world around me. After all, the idea of a vision is not to stick with common sense, but to shift the boundaries of reality.
I'm a maker
The road to mastery stretches on forever. It can be daunting to set out and sometimes frustrating to keep moving. Even more so when I realize it will take more than a lifetime to arrive. That’s precisely why there is so much value in pursuing what I am convinced of from the bottom of my heart. It carries me forward. Little by little.
I'm a craftsman
Away from overintellectualizing my perception, I love the good old handcrafts — beautiful, neat, well-executed work, imperfect by selfmade. I could spend hours to find the truely platonic form of a capital R and I would rather print a million posters with potatoes and shoecream than staring on a screen for eight hours a day.
I'm a thinker
Unfamiliar problems require creativity and time. Facing a new challenge forces me to leave my comfort zone — which I am terribly bad at. Yet still, my curiosity forces me to peer into the very essence of unknown phenomena, trying to understand what they really are about.
I'm a pupil
No matter how much I know or how deep my skills become: my expertise will remain a small island floating in a vast ocean of ignorance. I am always looking for mentors and find them not only among more experienced designers but among inspiring people of all ages and professions.
I'm a teacher
The most fertile environment I could possibly imagine brings together people from many different backgrounds and professions so they can improve and grow on each other. I benefitted a lot from other people’s knowledge and experience and I am more than willing to pass that luck on to others.
I'm a servant
Whatever I do, there are always others that I work for or work with. The communities I live in grant me safety, joy and even love. It is my deep belief that we all contribute to the atmosphere around us and thus the air we breathe — literally and virtually. I make a difference, as we all do.
I'm a leader
Sometimes serving requires stepping up for an idea or a community and embrace responsibility. Whenever I consider it helpful, I would use my empathy and analytic comprehension to guide those who need orientation. True leadership is not about surpassing those around us, but listening to their sensitivities and channeling their skills.
»All play means something.«
Some people actively tweet while purposely having no followers at all. Bastian Hansl and I wondered what such people could have to say, what characters they are and if there is any common ground between them. In a subversive attempt to unfold their secret, we wrote a program that yields such accounts. By transforming each of them to a book, raw and uncommented, we could offer a closer look into the psychology of those who feel unobserved and contribute to the discussion about modern communication.
In every language that bases on the latin alphabet, you find way more ascenders then descenders in written text. This phenomenon mainly occurs due to the statistical frequence of certain characters. I wanted to balance the appearance of ascenders and descenders in german texts and therefore designed the experimental typeface »Democratica«. What I basically did is to rearrange each character in the type body, following the figures of my research as well as some graphical considerations.
1320 – Losing Ground
I renounced electricity for 13 days and 20 hours. No computers, no smartphones, no internet, no television. No shopping, no showering, no electric lights. No busses, no trains, no cars or planes. I would describe my ambivalent experience as a silent storm. The vast amount of time I suddenly had made me enjoy tranquillity in a way I didn’t know before. Yet in consequence I had to deal with the emotional impact of far deeper isolation and reflection than I was used to. Losing Ground is my experimentlogdiarymirrordevice. Everything I felt, thought and survived is in this book.
In 2016 I’ve been asked to be supervisor for New Final Final, that years’ edition of our bachelor and master graduates’ exhibition. Therefore I have been involved in every step and level of its planning: developing a corporate design, finding a location, booking equipment, preparing drinks and food, printing posters and flyers et cetera et cetera.
Figure And Sound
For many of us music and science are two different worlds. In fact, these worlds are deeply intertwined. There is overwhelmingly much logic in harmony and a fair amount of spontaneous dynamic in mathematics – you only need to carve them out of their theoretical stasis.
Together with some students of the Mainz School Of Music I extracted a visual essence of relations and context between the laws of harmony and mathematics. While my colleagues were tasked with the scientific part of that project, I did not only design and produce the exibits and architecture but developed the whole exhibition concept. Given the fact I had not yet worked simultaneously as the artist and the interior designer and the supervisor, it’s been the hitherto hardest challenge of my studies. All the more did I grow on it.
Good Morning, Paper!
A daily project. Over the course of a year, the first thing I did when I woke up in the morning was writing down an idea, a small concept or even just a rough thought on a game. This could be a videogame, a board game or whatever I thought would be fun to interact with.
Good Morning, Paper! started on August 31th 2017. It finished on August 30th 2018 after 366 entries. Yah, apparently we had a february 29th in 2018... I have no idea. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Of Songs And Salt
Of Songs And Salt is the plainest, most intuitive Pen & Paper Roleplaying Game in the world. Each character has only three different attributes within each decision can be made or played out. The basic combat system is a rock-scissors-paper cardgame. Although the games’ ruleset is reduced and simple, combat has strategical depth. Characters don’t just have specific moves and perks, they also produce synergies with each other.
»And miles to go before I sleep.«
Somewhere I Belong
One of my oldest, most vivid and beautiful memories starts with me being ill. I was seven years old and woke up in fever. My mom then rubbed my breast with menthol cream, as she always did when one of us got sick. While my siblings were at school and my parents at work, I curled myself up in annual rings of blankets on the arm chair. I must have resembled a kangaroo cub in a cloth pouch. Until noon, the whole house would be mine. However, I would not leave my cozy throne – for all I would do was kickin‘ around koopas and saving the kingdom of Hyrule from Ganon’s greedy clutch.
I grew up in the pedestrian zone of Düren, a small town in western Germany. My parents ran a bakery on the ground floor of our house, separated from the living areas through a heavy, spring-loaded iron door. My father’s bureau lay just behind at the end of a narrow hallway. Whenever he entered or left the shop, the chaotic sound of laughing guests, rattling bread boards and begging children dubbed the backdrop of distinct chatter and motor growls. Every breath was enriched by flavours of warm bread, dark chocolate, flaked almonds and sugar icing.
Whenever I came home, I would try to run up the stairs before the iron door click shut. Quests were everywhere. It took so little time to get back from school, yet so many worlds did I visit even in Düren’s short canyons of cold-looking clinker and hot-smelling tar. I have been yellin’ at bold-faced packs of pirates, hiding in the hunting grounds of stalking dragon flocks and whizzing over the town’s roofs to help those in need, always on the brink of getting caught by villains and monsters. I explored ancient ruins, crooked caves and abandoned shores. Imagination carried me away the moment I woke up in the morning and I would not return until sleep took his toll. Back then, reality and fiction were no different fragments of the world. They existed as a canvas at the same time on the same spot. The only tools I needed to paint something were Lego bricks, video games and audio plays.
Data protection is of a particularly high priority for me. The use of my internet pages is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special services via my website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, I generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to me. By means of this data protection declaration, I would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data I collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
I have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
My data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). My data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as my customers and business partners. To ensure this, I would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, I use, inter alia, the following terms:
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (»data subject«). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. Name and address of the controller
Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
Phone: 01 71 - 498 11 47
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through my website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of my website may be entirely usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
My website collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be 1) the browser types and versions used, 2) the operating system used by the accessing system, 3) the website from which an accessing system reaches my website so-called referrers), 4) the sub-websites, 5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, 6) an Internet protocol address IP address), 7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and 8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on my information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, I do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to 1) deliver the content of my website correctly, 2) optimize the content of my website as well as its advertisement, 3) ensure the long-term viability of my information technology systems and website technology, and 4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, I analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing my data protection and data security, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal dataprocess. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
I, the data controller, shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which I am subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.
6. Rights of the data subject
Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
Right to rectification
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:
The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

An employee of Michael Durst shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 171) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An employees of the Michael Durst will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
Right of restriction of processing
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 211) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the Michael Durst, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Michael Durst will arrange the restriction of the processing.
Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point a) of Article 61) of the GDPR or point a) of Article 92) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point b) of Article 61) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 201) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Michael Durst.

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point e) or f) of Article 61) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
I shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unlesscan demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If I processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to me to the processing for direct marketing purposes, I will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by me for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 891) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact me. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision 1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or 2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or 3) is not based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision 1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or 2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, the Michael Durst shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

7. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
On this website, I have integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of my website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to my website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on my Internet site—which specific sub-site of my Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into my website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to my website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to my website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to my website is made.
The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.
8. Data protection provisions about the application and use of LinkedIn
I have integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is a web-based social network that enables users with existing business contacts to connect and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people in more than 200 countries use LinkedIn. Thus, LinkedIn is currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component LinkedIn plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding LinkedIn component of LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in may be accessed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of my website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on LinkedIn, LinkedIn detects with every call-up to my website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on my Internet site—which specific sub-page of my Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the LinkedIn component and associated with the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on my website, then LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited my website, provided that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the call-up to my website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their LinkedIn account before a call-up to my website is made.
9. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 61) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for whichobtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 61) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning my products or services. Is my company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 61) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in my company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 61) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 61) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by my company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
10. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 61) lit. f GDPR my legitimate interest is to carry out my business in favor of the well-being of all my employees and the shareholders.
11. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
12. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions e.g. information on the contractual partner).
Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when my company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
13. Existence of automated decision-making
I do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
