DE GIFTIGE PEN
Book design, In collaboration with
Lauren Bouden & Niel Daman, 2019.
book project is based on three random words Agatha Christie, weeds and
marginalization. In De Giftige Pen, newspaper articles about the 5 most
striking murder cases in Belgium are represented as fiction. The articles about
each murder case become a detective novel according to the tradition of Agatha
Christie, translated into today's society. This post-modern novel criticizes how
media share misleading headlines. The reader becomes a detective and creates
their own truth.
