Title 4×4
Year 1997
Size 70 x 100 cm
Technique 2 colour screenprint
Imprint 20

Four x four letter words = sixteen words inspired by cars and the culture of auto-mobility. Initially, I was planning to make a booklet out of this, but after printing I decided to keep the sheets uncut.

Another key-piece, combining found materials with self-edited content, using screenprinting as a creative medium.

Made during and after visiting Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) with a group of Rietveld students and teachers (my first trip to the US), spring 1997.

A new psychological sensation: getting into a frantic state of ‘flow’ while collecting four letter words…
