Echoes of our Earth


As artists, we, Kira and Manuel, bring together our shared passion for creativity and our backgrounds as nurses to create art that speaks to the urgent environmental crisis our world faces today. Hailing from Germany and India, we have witnessed firsthand the devastating impact of human activity on the planet and the dire need for change. Through our art, we aim to ignite awareness, inspire action, and provoke a collective sense of responsibility. Central to our artistic practice is the use of upcycled materials. By repurposing discarded objects and giving them new life, we challenge the prevailing culture of waste and consumption. We believe that every item, no matter how seemingly insignificant, holds the potential for transformation. Through our art, we aim to showcase the beauty and possibilities of upcycled materials, inviting viewers to reimagine their relationship with the objects that surround them. Our creative process is deeply intertwined with our experiences as nurses. In our profession, we witness the vulnerability and resilience of the human body firsthand. We draw parallels between the fragility of our environment and the delicate nature of human health. Through our art, we seek to bridge this connection, inviting viewers to reflect on the interdependence of our well-being and the well-being of the planet. Our artworks are infused with symbolism and storytelling. Each piece tells a narrative, capturing the intricate web of life and our place within it. We explore themes of interconnectedness, biodiversity, and the delicate balance of ecosystems. Our aim is to evoke an emotional response, to engage viewers on a deeper level, and to inspire a renewed sense of awe and reverence for the natural world. Through exhibitions, installations, and community engagement, we strive to create immersive experiences that ignite conversations and spark meaningful change. We collaborate with local organizations, schools, and communities, fostering dialogue around environmental stewardship and sustainable living. We firmly believe that art has the power to transcend boundaries and touch hearts, and we aim to harness that power to contribute to the urgent and necessary shift towards a more sustainable future. Together, we embrace the role of art as a catalyst for change. We invite viewers to join us on this journey, to reimagine the world around them, and to embrace the transformative potential that lies within each and every one of us. Let us rise to the challenge, together, and create a harmonious future where art and sustainability intertwine for the benefit of generations to come.
