"I LOVE YOU ALL" is a project i started in 2012 during an artist residency in Leipzig. It is based on the idea of universal love. In times of financial crisis, climate denial, refugee tragedies, terror and smug mythomane world leaders it is my conviction that more than ever we need to find the courage to love each other for what we are: Human beings living on a planet that floats in a vast and puzzling universe. Nobody knows why we are here and what we are meant to do here. Although it is incomprehensible, it is a universal question/matter. Because of this I find it rather strange that, as human beings, we don't support and love each other (and the planet for that matter), instead of hating, competing and repressing each other. Together we could make a beautiful future for all of us. But only if we want, and only if we can see and understand we are all the same and all together on this strange but wonderful journey.
This project is linked to a Facebook page where people could post there own "I love you all" picture in their native language (and in black and white), and it is still possible to do so (it's been a while since I have promoted this page, so it would be really nice if this would get more attention again) : https://www.facebook.com/IchLOVEvousALLEMAAL/
