Arnd’s work is all about minimalism and the awareness of subtle beauty in rearrangements of everyday objects. He transfers simple, familiar items into new surroundings or contexts and our perception of them transcends their original meaning. Typically, when an object catches Arnd’s fascination, he gives it a new life as an element of a more important collective whole. In choosing familiar items and simple techniques, he creates a manifest stress between the known and the un-known, between simplicity and complexity. The observer easily connects with the mostly well-known objects. The new interpretation however is often surprising and invites him to experience the tension between an old and a newer awareness. The work deals with the relativity of value and the value of creativity. It is a visualisation of how the whole becomes more than the sum of the elements. In the initial stage of a new project, Arnd collects pieces “of interest” with no pre-defined concept in mind. He conceives the final installation dynamically throughout the collection process. His final arrangement disengages the object from its original meaning or purpose and makes it part of an entirely new piece of art with a meaning and inspiration of its own. The aesthetic beauty of these unique installations is often in sharp contrast with its mostly unassuming components.
