news 2003

To the beginning of 2004 a limited New Year Edition appears. This time a series of 150 cyanotypes on paper reflect the sharpest star image ever made. More background information about the series and a review on 2003:

18 - 21 May 2004

With regards to Christmas a new cycle starts at the art façade in Munich which reflects the nature of the star of Betlehem. (

On Novembre 11 Tim Otto Roth starts the project "I see what I see not" at the internet art façade in Munich.
