About Feddow Claassen

Feddow Claassen (1970) is visual artist, designer and inventor lives and works in The Hague in The Netherlands.

"I find reflections a constant source of inspiration. Whether it is coming from direct light or bouncing on a shiny surface. But isn’t what we see a mere personal interpretation of our surroundings? This - I find - is what makes life challenging, fun and interesting.

When I’m working on a mirror, I’m constantly confronted with my own image. I see myself concentrating, working to bring into reality ideas and thoughts that my mind has challenged me with.

However, I do not want the interpretation that can be made of my work to be limited to those ideas that inspired me. On the contrary, I want my mirror to fuse ideas, trigger thoughts, to whoever stands in front of it. To question what is real and not. To come up with their own interpretation, their own reflections."


Work: Reflected Objects / Installations



Reflected Objects
Human replacement parts
   
 
Adam and Eve ate the apple of the "Tree of the knowledge of good and evil"
The fruit of the tree caused them to experience the creation in terms of good and bad.
Now they knew, but had to give up the option to live forever.


The knowledge they gained would later be used to repair the human body.

I used a from Adam and Eve by Cranach creating two fully refurbished human bodies with all the parts iI could obtain. Adams robot-arm is holding the modern apple I-phone, the forbidden key to knowledge.

Commissioned by the Amsterdam University
