In 2004 the British artist, designer and educationist Alan Murray developed a workshop for one of the Masters of Design courses at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. As one of the guest teachers I presented one part of the Funlab Masters Project that Alan titled "Obsessive Amateur".

  • 11. In winter like in summer Night and day I walked Over the plain, the hills And the river too, To bring back the hard stones Chiselled by nature.

With the moments of leisure My occupation gave me I built this Arabian nights’ palace Where my memory is engraved.
