Mutated Human

Überintellectueel
2010

Collage series made during an Artist in Residence Programm von Kunstcentrum de Krabbedans, Eindhoven (NL)

The materials of this collage series are from the City Library of Eindhoven. Old books, magazines and texts have been re-used, in combination with photo’s I made on the spot, to make new images.

What I investigated in my temporary atelier in the library was the phrase ‘Knowledge is power’. If you read a lot and inform yourself about eveything there could at some point be too much Information in your head.  The balance will dissapear. All the weight stays on the top and you will become top heavy. Knowledge is something very valuable, but not without staying with two feet on the ground at the same time.
