How careless can one be?
In April 2006 there was an exhibition of Maarten Ploeg's work that he gave to friends. They asked me too, but I couldn't remember Maarten ever gave me one of his works.
And now, between all kind of boxes, I saw a red map with this inside.



In the catalogue of the exhibition, I saw that he gave the same computer print 'self-portrait' to Arnold Weel in 1992. I got mine in 1996 on my birthday.
I am careless, but he was too: he misspelled my initials. ;-)

Here is a photo of Maarten after he fell from his bike on the way buying champaign in honour of the birth of his brothers first child.

With this installation you can write a text and then, from the printer outside on the 10th floor, your document swirls into the world.
How many four letter messages will be send?



I programmed this in PHP on a local Apache server for Helmut Smits.
You can try it at the exhibition 'Eastern Neighbours' in Utrecht (NL).
If you take a visit, don't miss the Belarus pavilion ;-)
My fee was a box of local liquor from the Macedonian curator...
