Dressed as if nothing is wrong.

Dressed as if nothing is wrong.

A Book: Dressed as if nothing is wrong. (40 pages) For a while now, I have been collecting sentences for a picture I took one morning in September 2008. It combines how I think and how I work. Without talking it uses words that I’m not able to speak, in this way, […]

 

VILEM FLUSSER

VILEM FLUSSER

A Text on Design [PDF] Further studies on Flusser can be found here. Flusser’s essays are short, provocative and lucid, with a resemblance to the style of journalistic articles. One of the difficulties that arise while reading Flusser is the lack of references, quotations or illustrations; his articles seem to be articulated with the originality and freshness of […]

Yvonne Rainer reconsidered

Yvonne Rainer reconsidered

A little while ago I posted the manifesto of Yvonne Rainer from 1965. I thought it looked intresting without that I agreed with the manifesto. Here is a reconsidered manifesto from 2008 and a remake by Andrea Bozic. It is nice to have it round in this way. I think it makes sense in the Beijing context, i […]

 

Yvonne Rainer manifesto

Yvonne Rainer manifesto

Not that I really like it as a manifesto. It’s strange to read. (it gives some reasons to think about the also position). — — No to spectacle. No to virtuosity. No to transformations and magic and make-believe. No to the glamour and transcendency of the star image. No to the heroic. No to the anti-heroic. No to trash imagery. No to involvement of performer or spectator. No to […]

Florian Cramer compressed the nominated oscar movies to 1.44mb, which is the size of an old floppy disk. Don’t know how we could show them but I think they could be nice to have them around.

objets techniques

objets techniques

(taken from www.lumen.org/rekveld) About two years ago I discovered this book more or less by chance: Gilbert Simondon, “Du Mode d’Existence Des Objets Techniques”, Aubier/Montaigne, Paris, 1958 Only to discover that it is less obscure than I thought, but mostly known due to its influence on Deleuze. I’m probably one of the very few mortals left who have […]

 

working method

working method

Here I can explain some things people recently or a while ago said about my way of working. Democratic: Carol mentioned that my way of working deals with the definition of democratic. I think she mentioned that I do believe that everyone and everything has an intrinsic valid content. For the exhibition: We can guide a certain content […]

A few days ago I met Carol in the Element Fresh at Sanlitun. The Ginger orange carrot juice tasted well i have to say. Don’t know about your drink, Carol? Afterwards I checked the Mizuno store for some running shoes. They would give me a big reduction if I bought the shoes straight away. From 880 yuen […]
