    Some Thoughts on Generative AI

    Artificial Intelligence has been and will continue to be a great topic for this decade and the decades to come. Machines learn how to create content that we perceive being of high – or lets say – adequate quality, much faster than any human being could create this content. The consequences are both frightening and…

  • Love Your Pictures

    Spend time with them, because they say a lot about who you are and why you made them in the first place. Learn from them, because they not only show what you like, but also show to you what you would like to improve. They are pictures, but also like mirrors to guide you a…

    Sony World Photo Award 2016

    De – Cision

    The German language has a different word here: Entscheidung. The German word Scheidung means to separate something. We also have the phrase Scheiden tut weh – it hurts to be separated (from someone or something). So if we say Entscheidung, it actually means something good.

  • Miracle


    Life is a miracle. If you think about the sometimes very destructive mechanisms forging the universe, the chance that something as beautiful as a birch tree in the evening light even exists is diminishing low. Anyway – the physical universe does not know beauty. Life knows beauty. Human beings know beauty. And yet, here we…
