A crowd, how does that feel? To be an individual in a mass? Or to become a part of the bigger flow?
‘flows’ shows us the individual in the crowd and a crowd made of individuals. All different individuals though. Even a stream, made of all similar water molecules, cannot exist without all of them separately.
‘flows’ is about a streaming mass that cannot exist without the inviduals in it. So how do we look at such a flow in a picture? Do we just see a mass? Or are we looking for individual stories in it?

Hoe voelt een massa? Wat is het om een individu te zijn in het grotere geheel? Of gaan we graag op als individu in die dagelijkse stroom?
“flows” laat ons het individu zien in de massa, maar laat ons ook de massa zien die opgebouwd is uit de verschillende individuen. Een stroom kan niet bestaan zonder elk individu, maar elk individu in de stroom is uniek, of toch niet?
“flows” laat zien dat ieder individu opgaat in de stroom, maar dat die stroom niet kan bestaan zonder het individu. En wat vertelt het over ons als toeschouwer, hier kijkend naar een foto? Kijken we naar het geheel, of laten we ons verleiden tot het zoeken naar het individu?

Que ressent une masse ? Que ressent un individu dans une foule ? Sommes-nous  attiré par l’anonymat dans le fleuve du quotidien ?
“flows” nous montre l’individu dans la masse, mais nous montre aussi la masse construite par une multitude d’individus. Une foule ne peut pas exister sans chaque individu, mais chaque individu dans la foule n’est-il pas unique?
“flows” montre que chaque individu se disperse dans la foule , mais que la foule n’existe pas sans ses individus.
Qu’est-ce que cela nous dit sur nous-même, dans la vraie vie là dehors, ou ici en regardant une photo? Voit-on l’ensemble, ou se laisse-t-on guider et séduire par la recherche de l’individu?
