ABOUT the ARTIST Katharina Forster:

As an interdisciplinary artist I am intrigued by the diversity and interconnectedness of our world today – how whatever we do today, no matter how small or big, affects others on an immediate and global scale.

Follow INSTAGRAM to see weekly fun and exciting pictures about #SomethingRedOnATuesday and my studio work.  You can sign up for my newsletter or contact me directly via email: katharina@meandmyhands.com




This website shows sculptures and installations made from everyday materials such as used teabags, candle wax, colourful plastics and others.

Others might include empty birds nests, 1-Euro cents or pacifiers and disposable diapers.


Participation is part of the artmaking process.

Everybody can participate by collecting material. Until now the majority of the stuff the works are made of is collected and found by many people around the globe. An open call for material is sent out irregular by mail or notified on the website (collection).

Feel free to join in.


It is the space which inspires many of the works and leads to installations which correspond with the environment.

Installations are created for a specific space and vary with each new exhibition space in size, scale and meaning.
