  14. 14. 14.15 hello. 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 intriguing? DK i-pad  Jobs • listen . . .  as you will understand i started wondering
  15. 15. 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.
  16. 16. 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 important contrast Third, finally my regular portfolio.
