GIANT WHEEL, 2014 | Medium: Polaroid
Life is like a ride on a giant wheel. The key is to enjoy the ride all the time. Enjoy when you’re up and enjoy when you’re down. Enjoy when it goes round and round. It’s all part of the same ride.

INDIGO BRIDGE, 2016 | Medium: Polaroid
Indigo Bridge is part of a series I shot in Berlin. Bridges fascinate me visually and symbolically. Visually of how they look and symbolically of their meaning to go from one place to another - from one stage to another stage in life. Life is like a bride because I am constantly in the process of becoming, growing in character and transitioning to another stage mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Also being in between places and stages has its own quality on a bridge and in life. The not-here-anymore and not-there-yet has its own enjoyable quality of life of being in between.

MINIMAN : GROW OR DIE TRYING | Fabian Kochendoerfer
I studied philosophy and art history from 1998 till 2000 in Tuebingen, Germany. I studied with Prof. Diedrich Diederichsen art and design at the Merz Academy in Stuttgart and graduated with Diploma and with Master of Arts from the University of Portsmouth in 2005. My artist alter-ego is called MINIMAN and my slogan is GROW OR DIE TRYING. I am producing Polaroid art since the year 2000. I manually manipulate the Polaroids in my own original style. I live and work in Berlin Neukölln since 2009 as an artist.

NOW, 2018 | Medium: Polaroid
The concept is that time is not subjective or liquid or relative - like it could be interpreted from a Dali painting - but time is an illusion. Time is man made and is a fiction. Time does not exist. Only the present moment exists. The infinite presents that never ends. There is only timelessness. Timeless now. The clock is broken in half. The fiction of time stopped. There is only now.

BERRY GALAXY No.2, 2000 | Medium: Polaroid
This Polaroid is called "Berry Galaxy No.2”. Created in the year 2000. It shows a galaxy of light and reflections in nature. In the smallest reflection, a whole galaxy is hidden. Nature is a holographic wonder. Everything is included in everything. The whole universe exists in every single part and in every part the whole universe is included.
