The Things That Dreams Are Made Of

Galerie Oele Amsterdam 1997

Amorphous black objects and rows of LED displays stand on an unvarnished wooden table, chair and bookshelves. The displays show letters that form words. The letters flip ceaselessly but in a variable tempo, forming new words all the time. These words were made up associatively and have a poetic relation to the black objects. At unexpected moments, this poetic and experimental time is interrupted by words like GELD (money), TIJD (time) of LIEFDE (love) that roll by from right to left over the displays.
