Being an Explorer

1. Museum of Modern Art Arnhem 2. Fiona Tan.

My favorite part of the art museum we went to on thursday in Arnhem was 'Fiona Tan. Disorient and other works'. For me it brought back the feeling of being an explorer. Being an explorerer, especially in the 15th and 16th century must have been amazing: Traveling all over the world and making detailed descriptions and drawings of plants, animals and people that were unknown before. I imagine it to be the same feeling as you have as a child and the smallest garden is a world to discover. That excitement of discovery, is in my opion one of the best feelings there is and when I think of it the common denominator in all the things I love to do*.I wish you a happy weekend with a lot of wonderment!
