CRASH

With Friend and director Tjepke Zijlstra from Luim film. He gave me the assignment to deliver visuals for his experimental film/installation; Crash.

I focus on the energie and flashbacks de main character has when he left the car after been in a severe crash! We stand in front of the visual research that should finally become a graphic score. It is very abstract.

As research I did a.o. an interview with a person who had been clinical dead two times.
Do you have a sort of experience like that?

Ulises Carrion and me

It’s been quit a while since I was an active mail-art artist. I worked in Other Books And So with Ulises Carrión (his picture on the wall of my studio) and had my share of books, stamps, exhibitions etc.

These questions came in my mind: what is the meaning of mail art nowadays. Esp. in relation to all the communication we already have?
What does it do to for you?
Are there big players?
How does it work today?
How does mail art relate to other artforms?

Stamps from the past when I was in my Baroque’s Brothel Art Period.
