I was inspired by a lecture of the indonesian Poet Afrizal Malna, whom I heard in 2014 in Berlin talk about language and its power to structure reality. In a very abstract way he treated language as a comsumable article to find out, in which way it is working. Later on I contacted Mr. Malna for further information and presented him my artistbook on his Berlin Poem.
Then followed a long phase of scientific and artisitc research, to establish myself an idea on the relation between language and writing. The presented book shows different opinions of nowaday writers,which I contrasted with my supposed development of signs and related tools to structure the world.
Technically speaking is the artwork made as japanese inkdrawings on paper, which were later scanned and set on computer. Finally they were copied on very thick black pages. Special technique aswell: risographique.
The white texts seem despite their beautiful contents a little feeble against the powerful pink signs, now and then attacking them. Reading habits are broken.
