The first dummy for "Pelikan.3", a follow up on my self-published book "Pelikan", consisting of images made during a third journey from Bangkok, Thailand, to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in February/March 2014. There is no Pelikan.2 book allthough there is a series, somehow it didn't feel right to me because the images in this series are taken from different journeys instead of a single one. The special folding structure of this dummy is the same as for "Pelikan", the book folds out to a tryptich and has no fixed sequence, allowing the viewer to create his or her own.
What interests me are the many different ways how people over there shape their living environment and how strange things, colors, shapes and lines translate into a new two-dimensional object.
The original title reflects my fascination for the bold use of color in SE-Asia and is derived from the name of the little metal paintboxes every schoolchild had to have when I grew up.
