Belgian drama

Saturday, May 24, 2008

ashtrayI present as an object from my daily life, this stupid ashtray shaped like lungs. Actually I don’t smoke and I never use this item but i’m really attached to it, even though I have it only for a short time. I got it as a part of my furnished accomodation when I moved in amsterdam, september 2007. It really reflects my state of mind about life and serious problems. Taking big matters with humour is definitely my behaviour in protecting myself from it and I think it is also typically a belgian thing to laugh about dramatic events and make them absurd. As I’m really attached to my country, this object helps me to stay “belgian” in daily life.

I would say! Amazing how a “stupid” design joke can tell that much… /
