A la recherche du temps #1 :Jos Broeders
Jos Broeders recently graduated at the art academy in Den Bosch. He operates with a strong poetic touch and makes, amongst others, installations with textual elements. Jos presents a poster with minimal anti-design appearance. The poem on display concerns matters of spatial context in a style referring to conceptualists.
A la recherche du temps #2 : Jerome Giller & Alveols (Brussels)
A movie about time within the context of a economic and social live.
A man wakes up and imagines how his day will turn out. The daily clock goes by in hi-speed: traffic, work, economic efficiency: progress, progress, progress. He then imagines how it would be if time would stand still...
The beautiful minimal electronics where made by Alveols.
A la recherche du temps #3 : Eric Schrijver
Eric presented his conceptual 3d computer game ’Country of origin I’. In this game you can walk around and ask philosophical questions. One can choose several paradigms and can talk to characters with different philosophical stances. The user manual is published as a Onomatopee edition.

You are in a computer game in which you have to find the essence of time and space.
You could be tempted to think this quest is in vain, because you think that questions are more important than answers. But you are in a computer game.
Games have solutions for they consist of puzzles. And as Thomas Kuhn says, although intrinsic value is no prerequisite for a puzzle, the assured existence of a solution is!
Eric Schrijver wrote this 3d-animated conceptual adventure game for the Eindhoven based independent publisherOnomatopee. It was is published as part of Onomatopee #12, the a la recherché du temps artist series. In this series artists endeavour their position within space and time. Country of Origin I is made possible with support of the NBKS.
