inside the book

The vacant land next to my house was sold in 2014 to two self-builders. One built his dream house in 1 year. The other is not ready yet. I followed the process from 2015 and recorded the result in the book Arcadia. This publication is about ambition and the impossibility of realizing it; the feeling that it will never work and may never work again. Arcadia consists of three parts: 2015, 2016 and 2017. Each part consists of separate sheets. The further in time, the more desperation strikes, the more complicated the folding of the sheets that make up the parts.
