The cone, how generic it may seem, is my fellow resident in this city, together with them I experinece my life in Amsterdam. What is their meaning to me, and can I portrait those emotions?
I want to show the depth of something that might be overlooked, whilst their beauty is so evident. Can we look with a new vision to these generic objects? and by that learn new ways to look at amsterdam and it’s resedents? I want to try to uncover the romantic and sensitive soul of this lifeless object.
I have a strong fascination for objects, and experience a strong emotional connection with the objects in my surroundings.
Coming to Amsterdam I would rummage the streets for treasures, materials for my work.
My fascination for Traffic cones is an ongoing fascination, with this project I want to give words to that underlying attraction. I have realised during my travels that objects and houseplants in the City’s perifery give me a feeling of comfort and safety.
