… or actually: I took apart my lens on purpose to see what would happen if I changed things. The end goal is to find a combination of parts that give the impression of what I see when I take off my glasses. The world without my glasses changes into a painting with moving parts and strange lights that are alive. This is not necessarily an impressionist painting, but very often it is. This can also be more cubist (Braque) or Surrealist (Ernst) because the brain has to find its own creative ways to make sens of the input. I am sometimes annoyed that photos are too clear, too precise, too sharp, too mechanical. Maybe that is why I like small sensor cameras like my beloved TZ81 and the LX7 that was stolen from me.
Broken Lens Project
Blue ink ornament with “Spots of light with teeth”
Materials: fibre composite material print, ink, paint, pigments, nail polish
Print: Litho archive matt
Dimensions: 85 cm * 65 cm
I tried my hand on smaller ornamental frames, and this is one of those that I like most. The other ones are red and white – but they are not finished yet. So there’s more to come.
Could turn them into a flag of sorts, the Dutch flag would be fitting maybe – even though I am totally not a nationalist. It got me thinking regarding the new Kleistpark price. Stay tuned.

Was just toying around with something for my Instagram. Here are some variants.
