Statement: a voyage from my birthplace
to the big world via symbols.
I was born in the medieval university city
of Leuven. The little
statue “Fons Sapientiae” symbolizes the source
of wisdom, the symbol of the eternal student. Since Leuven is
also a beer city (Stella Artois), the student pores his wisdom in his
head. I covered “Fonske” with the gothic arches
of our famous town hall.
Leuven is in Flanders, famous for his bobbin lace and linen.
Flanders is in Belgium, famous for the best chips in paper cone.
Belgium is in Europe. Technical design of the European currency euro.
Europe is in the world. The quilting
lines are the degrees of latitude and longitude on the globe.
The world is becoming crazy (blocks).
