ingredients: various tape, found images,
photoshop, 2x A4 sheets of paper,
alcohol markers and PITT artist pens.

Object style is based on Kelly vander Haegen's tape & marker technique.

It is an unfoldable object with 12 sides. It has a christian theme: one side for each apostel based on found imagery of Jezus. I have mixed imagery with my own portraits and Ives Klein's blue man. Additionally, if you hold the object in front of a light source, some sides will illuminate like "church glass". Colours change if you semi-fold. (not visible on scan)

how I see it;
A comical presentation of art as religion. The apostels carry sinfull and virtuous works of art in their wheelbarrows.
