"In 1989 I wrote my writer’s name for the first time. After all those years I still see this lettering as a self-portrait. By concentrating on a certain idea, the technique or a style, by working on a certain piece for a long time frame, by totally engaging in this process, you get to know a lot about yourself and your personality. And this of course can be seen again in the works, that I create.
I wanted to realize something special: The series of these three prints is chosen so that you can reproduce the entire spectrum of my work. My use of the name DAIM is becoming more and more complex in them. My development as a human being strongly corresponds with this process. It has something to do with personal maturing, the general situation of aging." - Daim
DAIM concentrates on four letters to push personal and visual boundaries in his highly stylized three dimensional writing. DAIM’s programme comprises the construction, as well as de-construction of a word (at some point, in between the processes of annealing and erasure, it emerges out of a synaesthetic sphere and reveals that it came into being out of nothingness and is always on the verge of disappearing into it again. DAIM's graffitis can be seen as fixed images of a word-formation that is constantly threatening to reassemble, denying access, escaping the demands of tangibility and, thereby, remain free and sovereign.
