PHI

In my symbolic universe, the phi symbol stands for photography, philosophy, phantasmata. Using these three concepts as a methodological framework, I research the relations between reality, memory, images, history. I try to share some of the findings of this research through the work I make, the words I write, but gradually also more and more as workshops, shared moments of thinking, talking, making, telling stories to ourselves and others. Saturday September 7th a new series of workshops will start, in the Brussels district Ganshoren, in the theme of dementia prevention. The workshops are a collaboration with brOes, the Brussels centre of expertise for dementia, and with LDC De Rotonde en GC De Zeyp, the local elderly and community centres. Each of these boxes contains a pen, a handmade notebook, a set of photographic instructions and a disposable camera.
