The Dream of a Thousand Shipwrecks, 2009

The dream of a thousand shipwrecks consists of several chapters. In this chapter several history and scientific books about explorers, anthropology, biology, pre-historical men are cut into pieces and rearranged in a new illogical sequence. They are intertwined with two texts of Shakespeare. Both text and images get a different meaning and context.” – Patricia Kaersenhout
