Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Dominik Laux – For me, art is a form of expression. It channels emotions and feelings through the artwork and allow to build a connection between the artist and the viewer. Looking at art will transport the vision of the artist and at the same time will give you the room for your one interpretation.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in society? And contemporary art?
DL – Artists are a mirror of society. Their view on social issues, but also on the pure joy of life, allow people to open a discussion about. They bring topics into community’s, which otherwise wouldn’t be able to experience those point of view and allow to open peoples mind for something new.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
DL – My Art is always inspired by emotions. So, I take a specific feeling and put it into my work. For “Lost Not Found” it was a combination of overwhelming and loneliness while I was in Shanghai. All the people, the traffic, the noise and the smog over the city got me very intensely. But at the same time, I never felt lonelier between so many people. I found the quiet place at a public aquarium inform of a jelly fish tank and just watched them for hours, which transferred me out of everything and inspired me to create those artworks.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
DL – For me, it’s not challenging to create art at all. I could spend all day with it, but what becomes more and more challenging are all the factors you must fulfill to become able to use your time to create art. As an Artist you need to care about so many things beside off the creation process, which is the real challenge.
