Farbenlehre

The everyday professional cleaning process is based on the existence of the specific color rules implemented to achieve a higher level of hygiene.

Rags in different colors, which are used for cleaning and maintenance of the upper surfaces, should not be mixed, as the previously standardized color of the rag is assigned to certain elements of the office. "The 4-color-system" is based on the fact that the red rag is always and exclusively being used for the toilet and surrounding tiles, yellow for the basin, glass and elements around the sink, green for the kitchen and blue for the office furniture as well as the elements within the room.

Incorporating my working experience and appropriating the "science of colors" into my color theory, I make readymade installations based on selected segments of common office rooms (toilet (+) bathroom, kitchen, working/conference room).
