Anatomy of Identity

''The only fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it ''
What is the colour of Holland. Does anything like‘typically Dutch’ even exist?
In a world in flux, we are slowly losing our ground due to a multiplicity of ideas, attitudes and political points of view. Because of conflicts, we are getting to know ourselves and we are beginning to doubt the assumptions of old. Something has got to give before it can be rebuilt again.
A flag as a symbol of our national identity is only a colourful rag. Still, it has something to say about the country we  belong to. A rag of limited dimensions but with unlimited power.
 A flag is just a rag but it is still a piece of cloth to which we feel connected. The conceptual level of a flag, which everyone understands, goes beyond the extent to which the work can communicate itself. To what extent does the audience feel connected and implicated?  it's a symbiosis between the body and its dissection.

It Ain't Over Till the Fat Lady sings

Mankind is growing, peopling the earth, searching for a place to live.
Chaos is the natural tendency of all things.
Man lives with the need to constantly fighty that tendency, creating order instead,to organise the chaos.
Growth and development can't be pinned down, they are determined by the moment.
Is this his moment of glory or is reality knocking on his door?

Man seems to be traveler who, in his flesh-and-blood-suit, wanders about the earth at some remove from his fellow men.
The difference between experiencing biological time and technical time is a reflection on an existing problem in society. Technical time is witnessed inthe strict schedule of the environment.,necessary to facilitate the complex set of actions that take place in a technological surrouding. But our bodies live in a strong connection with the biological rhythm.

Even though you have no idea where you’re going, know at least where you come from.

Humanize the Unhuman [Study for great chain of being]

In the distorting Mirror of Life, reality appears as it really is. The damaged life is displayed by means of everyday utilities. Everything around us can just as easily breakdown, change or disappear altogether. Consequently, everything that we perceive as being firm, grounded and balanced, is in fact just ephemeral, fragile and transitory. The “Rollers” are a good example of this. They embody and illustrate, as it were, the individual deterioration of the aging person walking behind the “balance-creating” roller. They represent perfectly idiosyncratic ways of ‘losing balance’, of ‘losing ground’
