Meyer-Ebrecht makes sculpture, collages, and drawings. His large-scale sculptures employ colorful abstract geometric shapes benches, platforms and other kind of seating. Books play an important role in his work. He is interested into the conceptual and visionary space that the book inhabits physical object in his studio. Together with Kayrock for this edition he created a reproduction of a composite book cover. This book cover was then individually cut apart along the printed lines and reassembled
