Christoph Fink has been travelling since the beginning of the 1990s as part of his artistic endeavours. He keeps very precise records of these journeys (notes, photos, sound recordings), which he works into drawings, timelines, graphs, (wire) sculptures, slideshows and soundscapes. Fink's work demonstrates how complex the movements of the individual human being, or even more of humanity, in time and space are. In 2000 he bundled together objective recordings with subjective observations in his ’atlas of movements’. These movements take on a more social dynamic in his later work. In this vein Fink analyzes data about the movements of aircraft, historical facts about a city and historical periods relating to the earth, which he displays on ceramic discs.
