Omschrijving werk

Through my work I collect moments, which I define as the intersection of some people and time, and the artefacts these intersections create: snapshots, passport photos, cinema tickets, questionnaires,… that I collect and catalogue over periods of many years.

Omschrijving Since 2003 I have been collecting water and/or sand from places that I visited. When friends go travelling abroad I ask them to bring back some water and/or sand for me. All these bits of other ‘worlds’ then become part of a growing collection. The samples are preserved in glass bottles with labels listing the date, country, city/town, river/lake/sea and the name of the traveller.

Omschrijving Since 2002 I have been keeping notes of people who visited my room. Every day is represented by one centimetre on a timeline. When nobody came by or when I was away, the spaces on the timeline are left empty. The dates and names of people are painted on a wall using black ink. This was a 10 year project, finished in 2012.
