Chronologies




Chronologies: 01.01.1990-31.12.2001, 2003
Stamp on fax paper, 900x30cm


The full serie of dates of date-stamps are printed on long fax-papers, in a chronological order.
The timelines produced by the use of different stamps are all different in length, not because of the availability
duration of these objects -which is often standardized on 12 years- but because of the size of the object itself.

Unlike the works of On Kawara, the
chronology do not reflect the artist´s lifetime, but the time in which the stamp was in use, which can be as far back as the 1920´s.
So the Chronologies are like cheap time-travels for office workers....
