'Instructions' for the reader to reproduce the piece at home: stuff you need for the making of the piece: *camera *paper and graphite *a sound recorder Every monday for six weeks you pick out an event to document by using a camera and a sound recorder. You take photos of the event and you also sound record the event. You use the photos as a basis for a drawing and you make a collage out of the photo and the drawing to illustrate and reproduce in your own way that specific monday event. For each event you also have a sound documentation. For instance: you choose to document a visit to the dentist. First you ask the dentist if it’s OK to take pictures and sound record the visit, he/she will probably agree as long you tell him/her that its for an art piece. You document while you lie in the dentist chair and you ask the dentist assistant to document the two of you. immediately after the visit you write down some of your thoughts concerning the visit (if you wait too long with this writing you will probably forget about what you were thinking). Later on you sit down by your table (or bed or wherever you find is a good place to work in), with the photos, the sound and the text. You use the photos as a basis for a drawing and you make a montage from the drawing, the photo and the text. Use your imagination...
