In the beginning, “Inselglück” was created with gold, turquoise and purple being the main characters of the scene. Through the process of creation, also black and white became more dominant, and purple faded almost away. Instead, some “salty” silver areas appeared. The creation process was tricky and it took some time, until the intended mood (action and at the same time relaxation) were well-balanced. 

“Inselglück” gives you an outlook to golden hours, walking back home from the beach late, with salty hair and the scent of Bougainvillea in your nose. And the acknowledgement that you do not need much more in your life.
