The next morning was hiding in the dark of the night, because the sun had not come to take him by the hand. In the first night desert wind sang a song that smelled like laughter. After 24 hours of darkness, desert wind started to holler loud, drunk from all the space that she had swallowed.
"Stop running in circles!" she yelled at the sun.

 The Cancellation department was closed today. That's why the universe collapsed and the sky fell down and broke.

A tiger helped a shuddered day out of a long crack in the horizon and hurt himself on the glass.

I was sitting under the lemmontree and tried to get the piece of broken life out of the tigers spine, but I failed.
It was too deep buried in her bones.  After a while a little leaf grew of it, got bigger and bigger  until it turned into a rose bush.



About Forever: For a couple of years now I am working on this sculpture
piece. I am making little boats out of clay. Inside there are people,
animals and plants. They are on the journey from the world of the living
to their after lives. In my work as an hospital artist in residence at
the Oncology of Mount Sinai,  I am confronted every day with the end of
this life. This piece is a meditation on passing away. I started making
imagined beings, but recently it is mostly real beings that passed away
that I portrait. Sometimes I give them attributes that give hints about
their life, or about the way they died. The boats fit in one hands. I
like this size to work with. It is a size that reminds of a toy, as if
life was a game given the temporary illusion of control. The theme of
death is evoking ambivalent feelings of temptation and fear in the same
time. Are we all surrounded by the topic, still do we depersonalize it.
As if we never died.  This is an ongoing project. So far I have made
over 200 boats. I probably will never stop making them.
