For my graduation, the room held an unexpected emptiness. Only upon closer examination would viewers notice a book resting in a solitary corner of the windowsill. This triggers a memory of a story titled «Why Surfers Should be Fed?» – a topic discussed over drinks by John Rawls and Phillip van Parijs, delving into the concept of universal income. This narrative resonates with the ethos of surfers and individuals like us, all striving to navigate the world gracefully and seize opportune moments. As you flip through the book’s pages, a subtle clue emerges: «Call me.».
Upon dialing the number, a voice on the other end responds with, «Hello, I will send you a text message. Have a nice day.» Staying true to this pledge, a poem materializes on your screen through an SMS, inviting you to an incineration plant with precise coordinates at a designated time.

My project centers on the idea of using the museum K21 as a lighthouse, with its light shining during evenings and nights, regardless of the museum’s usual operating hours. To achieve this, I find inspiration in Diogenes of Sinope, portrayed through the symbol of an Androgynous surfer. He is an historical figure who lived in a barrel and challenged societal norms.
The lights emit Morse code, using that famous phrase from Diogenes of Sinope: I am looking for a human. «Je cherche l´Homme. » in French, this phrase - by confusing man as a figure of humanity and man of the male gender - makes one think of the exclamation I have often heard from heteronormative women, signifying their search for a true romantic encounter.
