My name is Simon Schmalhorst. I am a 25-year-old graphic designer based in Berlin, Germany. Since 2014 I study communication design at Hochschule Darmstadt. Besides my focus on developing graphic design products such as books, posters and websites, I also have a strong interest in conceptual art and photography. In 2018 I did a 5-month internship at the studio of Daniel Wiesmann in Berlin. Later that year I studied at the Art Academy of Latvia in Riga for one semester.

Feel free to me for any further information or work requests.

These are pictures of an installation I did during my studies at the Art Academy of Latvia – Two mirrors hang on top of each other. If you look carefully, you will see something moving on top of the lower mirror. A plastic pipe, that was poured into a concrete block, stands vertically on the ground. If you listen carefully, you will hear a noise coming out of the pipe. A flyswatter is nailed onto the wall. – I actually put maggots onto the mirror and into the tube, but for a visitor of the installation it was hard to tell. Some people didn't even recognize the sounds or the movements, others were disgusted by them. After a few weeks the maggots turned into flies and were able to fly away.
