Dust and wood chips drifting through the air, torn cellophane creates a diffused rainbow. I thought those ordinary sights are beautiful. An independent attitude, a spirit of D.I.Y, a peculiar sense of solitude is what artists confront when they are creating. It might be because of this that they create a peculiar mood. I had the idea that I would like to capture this mood into a film. This is a portrait of the figure “Jonny Knüppel”.
