Company. It’s the neighbour’s cat. It’s been wandering the grounds for several months, now. It’s been used to come at night, or in the evenings, when I’ve stopped working. It then crosses the courtyard and if I see it I usually go out and sit down on the doorsteps. It’s partly a wild cat, but still you barely get to sit down before it’s in your lap and aggressively demands to be cuddled. It rubs the side of its head, with its teeths bare, hard against my knee. I think it’s trying to prepare me for the fact that it’s moving in. It’s tried to sneak into the house a couple of times… And now it’s started to come here, in the daytime, to the workshop. It doesn’t do much work; it’s more into lying on the radiator, supervising me work… But I like the company. She’s a good cat…

Clean Slate (VII-X)







There’s this ongoing, continuous search for material. The sources being legion: deserted farms, desolate places, second hand stores, friends, family, recycling centrals, ads…

… Resulting, this time, in Meccano. And something that I don’t know what it is, apart from it being in plastic, and for children. A kind of Meccano in plastic, maybe.


Lord Voldemort keeps haunting me at night (he very much looks like some of Bacon’s Studies of Pope Innocent X)… I gotta stop reading this Harry Potter-stuff…

Out of Order

Stating that Rauschenberg seems outdated while de Kooning seems relevant. And McCarthy’s still interesting while Potter’s more enjoyable. Even for an adult.
