The timelessness and static of the monument of Kaiser Wilhelm I, on the German Corner in Koblenz is confronted with the dynamic and changing skill of life. The statue of Emperor Wilhelm I is overwritten with animated lyrics that seem to be moved from natural phenomena such as wind and water or even develop a life of its own. Words and textures that grow, reproduce, behave like insects or flocks of birds. A cycle of textures and words illuminates the theme way of life in its various connotations and opens a pictorial typographic excursion upon life. Text remains not only as a memory storage, but carries through change, mutation and even by its disappearance to a new and lively process of awareness.
