Let’s meet . . . • let’s start . . . i have a lot to share,
? • and you probably have some questions as well . . .
Einstein 1 2 • thank you for having me . . . • this short custo-
mized introduction, is mainly about questioning
Einstein 3 • because, it is not only valued by science.
? • by the way, if you have any questions, just ask . . .
Portrait indian • you are viewing an early portrait of me. it is
actually the first evidence, of me doing something
different, something opposite . . . please be aware,
Icon cowboy at the time • most of my friends were copying an
Portrait cowboy icon, • and carried a pistol on every hip.
? Sex pistols • i don’t know exactly why, • but i never lost this
Exit R kind of attitude. • in fact i am quite sure i will select
Audience the right, • if you all would pick the left • to leave
Exit L the concert unexpectedly.
Brain • might have something to do with the structure of
Anarchy my brain, or • the liberation of in-di-vi-dua-li-ty.
Cover • recently i bought a first danish book . . .
Titlepage • i selected a children’s book, because i would be
more comfortable learning danish this way . . .
Page 1 • but alas, it did not work. i got hooked by the
stunning opening . . .
? • don’t you agree?
Mange dyr • is n’t the first sentence on the very first page
DK i-pad Jobs • listen . . .
as you will understand i started wondering
EN i-pad Jobs instantly • once the translation hitted base . . .
Paris • seemed like some sort of exis-ten-tial phi-lo-so-
phi-cal issue . . .
Eagle & colibri • some soloist . . . • kept popping up as well . . .
True/false • luckely carnap, whom i studied way back in 1978,
did bring some relief.
How many? • by now i am aware its not really possible to return
Quantify mange true or false • when evaluating the statement.
Big data • sorry, BIG DATA are a little out of context.
maybe (at) another time in another space . . .
? • are you aware the danish and the dutch share a
Cattle preoccupation • for exotic non domestic animals?
@ the at sign, • originally used in ‘at the cost of’ is the
link i’d like to introduce . . , because . . .
Elephant • recently i discovered you use an elephant or
Snabel a 123 eliefent, • to load the at sign • with a logographic •
Monkey representation . . . • almost the same is done by
Apestaartje 12 the dutch . . . • except they use • a monkey, or abe
Apestaartje 345 • please be aware • no need to add an extra a •
. . . in the dutch example . . .
? • but is n’t it strange (and a little frightening as well),
we seem to accept virtual similarity • without any
Elephant 1 questioning?
Elephant 2 or am i nuts . . ? . . . • because i did check
Elephant 3 the resemblance • between language and image
Elephant 4 in some databases • to value both options.
Elephant 5 as it seems, • it is possible to capture the ‘snabel a’
now and then.
Monkey 1 • but although the dutch reckon ‘apestaartje’
Monkey 2 • represents the shape of a monkey’s tale,
Monkey 3 • in reality, the resemblance does not exist,
Monkey 4 • that is, to the best of my knowledge,
Monkey 5 • and unless you prove the opposite . . .’
now, if you don’t mind, i would like to continue with three portfolio’s
presenting different aspects of my work.
To be continued • First, some selected work of the american students with whom i worked
at western michigan university for two years.
Second, the re-design of Vrij Nederland, show casing the collaboration with
artists and illustrators, because we valued the graphic arts to be an
Third, finally my regular portfolio.
