books of disquiet
dim: each c. 30 cm x 13 cm x 10 cm
Books of disquiet is a series of works reflecting the desire to control and freeze moments of the liquid, ever moving space of thought. The writings are personal poems and thought fragments that seem to contain information and draw the viewer into a secret but at the same time they elude themselves back into the ephemeral space they came from. These marks are very subtle and mystified. Therefore, although they are very personal, they function more as a visual comment on imagination rather than a source of information.
The book as an object is a universal symbol for eternalizing ones ideas. It contains and frames a certain space of somebody´s mind and represents intellectual status. Once printed ideas are manifested, materialized and frozen in time.
I am taking this object out of its function as a source of information and turn it into a poetic image that pictures our innate desire to control time and fleetingness.
