Sustainable, artistic New Year greetings
Berlin, 22.12.2019 – This year again, business partners of CROWDCONSULTANTS will be surprised with a special New Year’s greeting. Berlin-based artist Andreas Greiner, who repeatedly addresses sustainability in the ecosystem earth in his works, designed a multiple with 3 alternatives signed and numbered art prints of motives from his series “Spaceships on Earth”.
Microscopic spaceships on earth
Together with the scientific photographer Stefan Diller, Andreas created electron scanning microscope images of amoeba dwellings that bear a striking resemblance to satellites or futuristic spaceships. The surprising connection between the microcosm of the earth and the conquest of space by man is intended to make us aware that mankind constantly draws from the infinite repertoire of nature for its progress and that we are all elements of the same network earth because every living being has a direct or indirect effect on the others.
“Sustainability is one of the four core values that guide the actions of CROWDCONSULTANTS. That’s why we were so fascinated by Andreas’ work and happy that we were able to establish this cooperation,” explains Peter Bachsleitner, co-founder and Managing Partner of CROWDCONSULTANTS. “As with our consulting projects, we wanted to show that digitalization and sharing or recycling can be important drivers of sustainability – without loss of aesthetics and quality”. Despite the use of recycled paper and digital communication instead of joint meetings, the project ultimately released around half a ton of CO2. This is to be offset by planting trees through an NGO founded by Andreas Greiner and artist friends.
