‘Scheinriese’ is adapted from the children’s novel Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver (German: Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer) by Michael Ende. The (pseudo) giant Mr. Tur Tur is called ‘Scheinriese’.

The motivation behind this work was to create a super-saturated, over-the-top glitch-work showing some sort of fancy-futuristic neon fashion-deconstruction.

If you look closely, you may recognize the shapes of a catwalk. The work was called named ‘Scheinriese’, because sometimes things appear very bold and shiny, but when you take a closer look, they become smaller and smaller. The piece is not an intended comment on todays consumerism, but it would be wrong to say that it has nothing to do with it.
