carte postale de Adriaan van der Weel

Adriaan van der Weel. Dust
Photographs, paper, sand. 2007

The world's a bubble, and the life of man lesse then a span,
In his conception wretched, from the womb, so to the tomb,
Curst from the cradle, and brought up to years with cares and fears:
Who then to frail mortality shall trust,
But limmes the water, or but writes in dust.

(Francis Bacon, in Florilegium Epigrammatum Graecorum, eorumque latino versu a variis redditorum, ed. T. Farnaby, 1629)
