The Star was created in 2011, during a period of time when I felt both helplessness and aggression towards the growing greed of humans, as well as their ignorance of nature and the universe. What triggered these emotions was the nuclear catastrophe in Japan. Not only did the earthquake and tsunami deeply unsettle me, but I was also shocked by the presumptuous behavior of the mighty. I felt powerless. It tore me up to watch the disaster victims in the media. As always, we watched reality being bent and sugar-coated. Helplessness and power collided. It is sheer schizophrenia that humans beings act differently while in their governing roles, as presidents or corporate managers, for example, than they do in their personal roles as fathers, brothers or friends. We always hear, »On behalf of the state«, »In the name of the law«, »On behalf of, In the name of.« After all, we are all part of nature. Why is there this distinction? Life or death? Having or being? Creation or destruction?
I wanted to symbolize the previous with the following: The Star is a symbol of eternity, although being torn up. Steel is a sign of durability, imperishability, and a symbol of civilization, though eaten up by rust. The lances are a symbol of destruction. The heads out of money are a sign of double standards. This is an appeal for revolution: let’s destroy greed, which only works against us. It cannot win, because it isn’t human.
