So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

performative Installation in line with the Golden Herring Award at Academie Minerva, Groningen (NL), November 2017

All photos were taken by the wonderfully talented Jedidja Smalbil and the video art I owe to Igor Bobeldijk. Both of them terrific artists themselves. All rights reserved.

I wish I was a shooting star

traveling across the sky

offering a wish

to whomever takes the time

to study the stars,

the stars that mathematically align

with your brain

and when the light stops glowing

I fall

and my existence merges into

One with the universe

and with you

So that when you look into the nightsky

and you make a wish,

essentially you are wishing

for your life and my life

to persist forever,

not knowing that

with the moment you saw me fall -

I died a million light years ago.
