Breathless Structures
Graduating in Media Arts, Thomas Willemen investigates the endless possibilities of and needs for structures. In order to establish a structure, which acts as an embodiment of controlling the world surrounding us, Willemen chooses vulnerable objects, such as balloons, in his work Breathless Structures. Referring to philosophers and anthropologists he elaborates the idea of structures as “a means of fate control, a vehicle through which some sort of adaptive equilibrium is maintained between the inside and outside.” (An excerpt from: O.J. Harvey and H.M. Schroder (1963), Cognitive aspects of self and motivation.)
