"There had been a serious dilemma during the design study; And that was that after the diploma, there would be a mediocre job, probably paying less then that of a barely certified but experienced and competent electronics engineer. (this later at one stage turned out to be correct) So, If I were to become an artist, I could become famous, and hence solve the 'becoming a nobody designer dilemma'". Ebel has designed some video and electrical installations.
Originally an industrial designer, Ebel went from designing stuff to being simply fascinated by stuff. The Temple of Crap is an (ongoing) story about the relation between people and products.
