“Fairy tales are not medicine for the sick world in which we live. They are indications and traces of what we were and can become. They are literally alternative worlds in which ethics and morals in our so-called real worlds are tested. It is through our imaginations and imaginative worlds that we create sound strategies not only for survival but also for the endowment of enlightenment. The small people must learn to be smart and outsmart the villains of the earth.” – quote written in my diary but I forgot to write down the source 😉

My solo exhibition “Eugenics” is coming to an end soon.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Eugenics for dummies

Art portfolio- my work

Eugenics was and is a very controversial subject. One that I am constantly learning more about. With that said, it is also a very apt theme to investigate in this day and age, especially in a country which is obsessed with race. Little did I know while working on this exhibition that the BEE and equity laws in our country will come under the spotlight again – see here for more info: or

Which makes me wonder what is the future for our boys in this country after they finish school?

So besides these new laws, there is also the uncertainty and fears surrounding A.I. For example our eldest son currently dreams of becoming a programmer after he finish school, and his teacher told him recently that he should reconsider his career dream, since A.I will replace programmers in the future. What? Why not teach the children a programming language right now- giving them hope- and not make them feel that all is lost?

In response we as a family watched this video: which gave him hope again.

Anyway, I will leave you with the following quote: ” The man who made a mistake not only refused to unmake it but decided to go on making it. But in this, he made yet another most amusing mistake,  which was the beginning of all Eugenics. ” – G.K Chesterton from his book Eugenics and other evils. 

and another quote by Rick Rubin.

On that note, I wish you a wonderful weekend.
