Virtual & Realistic, ‘VRc’, little sister of ‘VR’, a module that’s supposed to repeat signals in the lower air regions on the most difficult places. With its three legs it stands super stable on every spot. The quasi working antenna should receive and forward the signals of the other modules: ESO, ESE, ESR and ESS.
A concrete sculpture made at school as part of the final exams. Theme is life. It is pretty heavy – the weight 🙂 – 55,2 kg – more info in the post itself. In which information about my education and modest career.
One of my first paintings that I know about. School year ’85/’86, age 14.
This time the concrete mass leans obviously on the yellow block which means that an enormous weight leans on the yellow block, that… [read further]
Results of what I had in mind to do with the paper creatures (2009) ten years ago. I was out of photos to cut.
Made during a stay in a hospital that was still located in the center of The Hague. The purpose was to make material that I could transform on the computer later, once home. It never came to that. The paper on which the figures are glued has the size A5, 148 x 210 mm. Soon I will complete the series as I meant to, modify the cutouts, another 10 years project!
Photo cut-outs in one night.
Explanation in the post paper creatures (2009)
Some material I found while cleaning up my workspace. Practically all my work has finally been mapped. Although I won’t remember a lot.
Concrete always comes back in my work, one day or the other. From these items I have no specifications, nor a clue of where they are, like so many items.
These drawings are made from thick paper, ecoline, pencils, other color materials etc. Spring 2004 Utrecht. Just discovered them in a box. 15 years ago.
The merging of something heavy and massive and something much more vulnerable. Gives it the shelter it needs, without a carrier it would be lost. One by the grace of the other.
1996 An experience at the AvBR, “The Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design” information
Two years TU Delft experience. I actually ignored the exact subjects and I put all my energy into the fun design assignments. Like hand sketching and form theory. But in the end the exact subjects counted for 80% of the propedeuse. And actually I was totally unprepaired about studying things, with books and stuff. But in those two years I think the seed did germinate, and contaminated and went to look at designing in a certain way. My eyes opened and I learned what I wanted to do. Perhaps this, here and now, the unexpected path, which this blog illustrates, that I am walking now. The road to nowhere, fortunate!
It feels like a largely failed mission from december 2017 till may 2019. 12 paintings.
“Very useful creation” The cigar remnants flow into the bin almost automatically. The goal is not to give the fine dust the chance to drift over the table and through the air anymore.
