Risoprint, Artist book, 24 drawings of tubes

Everything is tube. Sewage system, drains. Oil and gas. Turbines and hydropower. Cement and concrete production. Vein and intestinal system. Tuba, trumpet, flute, organ pipe. An iron rod. Stalk of a plant. Penis and vagina. The barrel of a gun, pistol, rifle, cannon. Wires, industry, cigarette, sirens and hoses. Life and death.

[… And I remember... I... I... I cried. I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought: My God... the genius of that. The genius. The will to do that. Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure.]
Kurtz from ”Apocalypse Now” (film by Francis Ford Coppola)
