In her bachelor graduation project, New York Biotopes, Lena Steinkühler imagines a colorful and animated New York City coming to life. Her animation and motion graphics short film deals with abstract plants and creatures of the New York, the city that never sleeps. From blooming traffic lights to futuristic beach creatures, all of them change their forms because of insufficient living space and adapt themselves to the surroundings of the metropolis New York City. A type of metamorphosis, where the newly developed vegetation assimilates elements of the city and makes them useful for their own purposes.

My idea was to create a film, that fills up the metropolis New York with vegetation, that adapts to the straightness of the technology and the given situation. This happens through the assimilation of structures and forms. These biotopes are shaped by the existing living environment, but in turn also shape the newly developed living environment by their presence. In other words, a symbiotically coexistence begins.

Lena Steinkühler (26) was born and raised in Bielefeld, Germany. She discovered her passion working as an assistant for graphic and design (GTA) from 2006 to 2009. Hence, she decided to study graphic design at the University of Applied Sciences in Dortmund, from where she graduated in 2013 delivering a beautiful animation and motion graphics short film as her graduation project. Currently, she works as a freelancer graphic designer.
