This sentence and this picture is my work
The work started with the words ‘drawing boundaries’. During the very extensive research, the working process also had to actively ‘draw boundaries’. The subject became the method within the final work. The result: two fold-out posters that document their own creation process - from research to synthesis and the design process. The fold-out poster ‘This sentence is my work’ contains all the texts that were read as part of the research and describes the process of content filtering and reduction. All texts that have been read are shown on the A1 side completely unfolded. The A2 page after the first fold contains excerpts from the texts. All pages that result from the resulting folds (from A1 to A5) describe an ever increasing reduction in information until only one sentence (on the cover) remains: ‘This sentence is my work.’ The content of the folded poster ‘This Image is my work’ consists of observations, ideas and developments. The folding here is similar to that in the first poster, representative of the process of idea selection, in which only one image is left at the end. Both posters decompress themselves by unfolding. The process of creation is exposed. Folding it up compresses them again. Winner Output 12 (2008/2009) and also nominated for the Print Creativity Award.
