Toca Me 2013 is an annual design convention in Munich. Timo Böse’s opening video for the event is a creative interpretation that incorporates the very classic and traditional still life art form with computer generated digital animations. “Through interrelated pictorial elements and subtle modulation of intense colors and soothing sound, [Timo Böse] suffused his piece with a vibrant softness,” ARTNAU eloquently explains.

Böse very cleverly combines the symbolic still life elements with very new-age objects, creating meaningful compositions out of them. In one of his still-life scenes, he has included plastic toys, LEGO and animated geometrical objects at the background of an unpeeled lemon.

Lemon traditionally symbolizes the passing time in still life oil paintings. This combined composition of elements create a unified theme and stories that can be read through symbols.
