1. sila

    In a hospital in the middle of Kreuzberg, the first capillary
    roots of my then newborn child started to sprout. Sila was the
    name we gave to the little being with the tiny fingernails.

    For the Inuit, the term 'sila' describes the cosmological concept of
    being, of wind, earth, space. I only discovered this fact some time
    after Sila's birth.
    Without exception all photographs in my work SILA were taken with
    a smartphone.
