The art of sculptor Florian Ecker is the result of an exploratory curiousness, in which he examines natural phenomena with scrupulous precision and the experimental set-ups of a scientist.
His artworks do not represent this explorative movement but its result, once Ecker feels it as being finished. Thereby the traces of its experimental undergoings are of varying recognizability. However, they belong to the artwork no less than the visual impression we get.
The book structures Florian Ecker‘s work in the form of a scientific journal into research, experimentation and results, and is thereby reflecting the creative process of the artist.
Rooted in editorial design and journalism, my work centers around visual storytelling. My artist books are driven by an intensive personal dialogue between artist and designer, verbally and creatively. Having had the great pleasure to have been invited into the archives and production of the artists, I help translate the artworks, mindset and process into a book object.
