studium generale lecture

studium-generale-lezing5Wednesday 25th of March we gave a lecture on graphic design, traveling, semiotics, passion and a combination of the previously mentioned aspects at the Utrecht School of the Arts in their Studium Generale series. Excited about the fact to see a poster designed by a student of the HKU announcing our presence, it was the first time we actually made an (almost) chronological story about our two years+ on the road. Although it was obviously inspiring for at least some people, it was even more surprising for us to look back in retrospect and see what impact it had on the life we are living now and how it shaped our dreams. So for the last time I’ll quote Mark Twain: ‘Twenty years from now you’ll be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.’

rickshaw-wallet1Wallets made from recycled canvas, originally used for the roofs of bicycle-rickshaws. Rickshaw artists aim to decorate the vehicles with as much drama and color as possible, and paint images that are both simple and memorable. This is street art for the ordinary man, and it’s unashamedly commercial. Tangail, where we photographed this very rickshaw art is famous in Bangladesh for its decorations.

Imagine to have a box full of letters; a complete alphabet, every single letter at least once. Now you start throwing all the letters randomly at the floor, and you read. To see if it makes sense. If not, you throw again. And again. And again. First words will exist, and since you have all the time of the world, eventually a complete sentence will form. Well, in fact, the ocean is a box full of letters, and with every tide it spits it’s stories on the beach. And most of the time we are just not watching.
