The photographic series Roundabout Monuments in the UAE  started in 2014 and documents the decorations of traffic roundabouts throughout the UAE. The country´s early street system included many roundabouts, giving space for the development of a wide range of motives from official monuments, clock towers and fountains to the magnification of regional objects and animals. Longterm Roundabout Monuments in the UAE will be developed into a publication. A poster installation with the material from the series was realized in 2015 for Welcome to the Jungle at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.
