Under the clouds of a Dutch rainy day, I walked through an autumn forest, whistling a song in remembrance of summer. I was bored with the absence of color. A grey foggy day can be a curtain blinding our hungry eyes. 

Excited, knowing all the beauty and richness of the invisible colors behind the mist. I could sense the autumn colors and in my imagination they were whispering my name

“...Marcel...Marcel...Marcel Wanders...!”

With a sharp long vigilant sword I sliced through the mist. Thousands of long misty ribbons were opening up and a wonderful palette of autumn beauty unfolded and revealed itself through the void. 

In the depth of this visual stereo spectacle I discover new joy, a new world, a world of complexity. The joining of two parallel universes.

Have you ever met Marcel

Do you remember antiques

Are you fond of white

No such thing as over the top! 

Do you recognise this face

Would you care for a little fright

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold

Are you afraid of black

Does glass always pass the light?
