the original picture


What is it that puts sense stimulations, like paintings, photos, stories and all the conversations and encounters with others into different drawers?

Drawers already pre-labelled, already parked and even censored.

Who designed these drawers and why would I want to put something in them ?

Almost automatically and really in a state “out of my mind”.

I put a picture away before EYE have seen it, it happens so fast you nearly miss the process.

One of the biggest drawers in this special cupboard is labelled “I have seen this before”.

What ‘have I seen before’? nothing.

That is why I have to see it again, to see it really for the first time.

To see the original picture.
