Final Major Project: Alter Ego
“The artist disappears
No one knows where he went
He leaves his signs here and there
He is seen in this part of town and, the next moment, miraculously, on the other side of town.
One senses him rather than sees him –
A lounger, a drunkard, a tennis-player, a bicycle rider,
Always violently denying that he did it.
Everyone gives a different description of the criminal.”
– Ray Gun, Claes Oldenburg’s alter ego (in Bright 2010: 99)
Bright, S. 2010. Auto focus. Paris: Thames & Hudson.
