A Street Named Desire

BK2014-StoutDoosje

My take on the “Naughty Boxes” workshop by Yette Rhode on Buitenkunst 2014.

The box is supposed to reflect the Facebook banner format. It is part of my “I don’t know what it is that I don’t understand about love” project.

Note that the part with the two ‘eyes’ in reality is a slider that moves along the full breadth of the box.

Human endeavor

Concept and realisation (at Buitenkunst 2013, with very limited materials available) of an imperfect ‘bowling ball’. The idea is that the imperfectness makes you somehow always fail, where ever you aim it at.

It was only when reading Sloterdijk’s Spheres that i became aware of the De Ludo Globi game of Nicolas of Cusa, which is about the difficulty for human beings to reach God. “God” is in the middle of a concentric circles of which the outer one is called Chaos. The player has to aim the ‘bowling ball’ at the center of the circles. However, the ball that is used for this is deliberately made in such a way that its pathway will be somewhat unpredictable and not a straight line at all.
