City Diagramming for Kiel, Germany

City Study for Kiel, Germany

To the unique terrain of the city and harbor shaped by the fjord, I added the city’s main road network and the North Sea Baltic Canal (one of the three major canals in the world, completed in 1895 with a length of 98km), which deeply impressed me during my visits. The shape, which looked like a mollusk with tentacles, became reminiscent of dragons and sailing ships as it became three-dimensional. The work is part of the collection of the Stadtgalerie Kiel.
