pretty big shirt

putting the ‘pretty’ in pretty big

In collaboration with Thijs van Himbergen

For the Mediamatic Freezing Favela exhibition in Amsterdam, Thijs van Himbergen and I (and our moms) stitched together a 10 meter tall t-shirt. Inside it we gave workshops based on the idea that searching for perfection is futile and no fun.

We also experimented with various drawing and printing techniques, and different states to be in when using them. We made pretty nice stuff, and that’s okay. It’s relaxing not to aim too high, and besides, things may paradoxically become more awesome when you’re not trying be too awesome. Or they may not, of course.
