Note / A pockmarked wall with dried up traces of paint looks like an archipelago, as if you’re seeing the earth from an aeroplane or satellite. MvW: ‘After taking a photo of the wall I imagined a falling star. Then you can make a wish that you cannot tell anyone else, otherwise it won’t come true. I think there’s a constant wish to have circumstances improve, that means for oneself and for others.’
