Dank u wel naturu


I was sitting on a bed, inside a locked room, with a camera in front of me and a closed bottle of water behind me, rationally questioning: Can I kill a fruit? Can I kill a plant? Can I kill a fish? Can I kill a cow? Can I kill a lam?

I came to the conclusion that I could only not kill the lam, which meant that I am not allowed to eat immature animals.

After 23 hours and 7 minutes I drank out of the bottle.


After this experience I was trying to write ‘Dank u wel natuur‘ on my most important painting. Just to make my conclusion clear and to destroy the idea of being only a painter.

Because of dismay and shaky hands I wrote: ‘Dank u wel naturu.
