Joy creates experienceable scenarios and atmospheres, based on key cultural issues to change the perception of our society, to help explore and develop positive future scenarios.
Based on Joseph Beuys´ concept of „Social Sculptures“, Joy cofounded „Integrated Art“ as a genre and a stock company at the same time in 1996 to break down the borders between art and real life.
