thoughts , taperolls 1998 - today

Thoughts, This has become a collection of about 16 kilo's. A material that represents my addiction to thoughts. I imagine that my thoughts are engraved in the dead skin cells that attach themselves to the rolls while I role them when I think. You find these rolls next to my bed, computer, kitchen table etc. Sticky, extreme repetition of one shape, one movement. Traces of my life, dust of my living space moved back and forward, over and over again. The feeling it gives is like a kitten licking your fingers. My thoughts are all over the place and its funny when one of them appears to be found stuck to the most unusual spaces.

The rolled up tapes form spirals. Is the symbol of eternity not the spiral? And is the spiral not the pattern of the collision of the electron? If the Big Bang was the result of a clashing of two branes (cosmology and M-theory). How to visualise the infinite other branes? Universe upon Universe. What happens when I let other people roll tapes and ask them to throw them into the pile? It cannot be found back unless an intensive search for dna is done. They are engulfed with the rest of my thoughts, their time and effort, their dna is joined with mine?
