Maastricht University • Video, 10 minutes • 1998

This video was made for the library of the Maastricht University, and was also recorded there. I focussed on behaviour in libraries; what happens here is that information enters the brain. We are used to do this by reading, which is a fantastic mechanism. I thought of other ways to let information enter the brain.

Central point in the video is the head and the possible entries. The camera wanders through the library and sees students absorb written information in different ways: by using their hair, their mouth, their cheeks, their ears, eyes and the top of their head. Students of the University were asked to play the roles.
