The wall sculptures belong to my series 3D-typography which opens up an interdisciplinary field of tension between letters and architectonic concepts. Their geometric style is concrete constructive, and I have also used corresponding primary colours in the past. Recently, however, for the submitted L-Pop and V-Pop installations, each are of four identically structured sculptures displaying the letters L or V, I turned to pop art colours, comparible to those used by Andy Warhol. The choice and arrangement of diverse vivid colours should make the four individual sculptures looking completely different, and should create an amazing contrast to their rigorous 3D-geometry.
