The past two months I’ve been hiding behind books and my computer. I’ve been writing my thesis for the Master program at the Sandberg Institute. And it’s finally finished, so here I proudly present the result “Memory Generation – On The Apparatus Of Remembering”. In this thesis I use family photos to show the difficulty in ‘reading’ images. The context of a family photo is deeply connected to our memory. As we all know, what we remember is often very different from what actually happened. Even though we know this, we still treasure our family photos; Their value is in their proof of who we are.

In the upcoming months I will focus on the graduation show. I will lock myself up in the studio to make some new works. Let me know if you want to visit me in the studio, I am glad to have some critical visitors!
The graduation show will take place July 11 to 15. Location is not confirmed yet, but it will take place in Amsterdam. More information will follow. Hopefully I will see you there!
