Galerie Oele Amsterdam 1997

On the display, red digital letters flash by with short intervals. Successive letters form words: functions and associations of the brain. The functions ‘creativity’, ‘linguistic capacity’ and ‘humour’ are linked, respectively, to ‘Picasso’, ‘poetry’ and ‘Mona Lisa’- concepts from the arts. Bolletje (little globe) contains sixty functions with linked associations.
