Time capture box: "blue box greetings", 1999
screenprint on post-cards, perspex, wood

Things have to have a function to find appreciation and acceptance. What if those things, loaded or only existent because of that function, are presenting themselves in a new, an 'unreal', abstract and totally 'selfish' identity?

In "blue box greetings" the postcards are 'defunctionalised' and become an object on another level. In the 'time capture box' they lose their function as proofs of reality. The title emphasises the abstract part of the transformation, but also indicates the former function of the greeting cards. Can you relate to a new content? Or do you miss and wish to regain the perfect panorama view?
