Hoe de dingen ons bewegen



It was around 02:00 a.m. when I suddenly felt this strong urge to move my bed from the wall towards the centre of the room. This sudden change opened up a new space, and enabled me to move more freely around the house. Since then I have been walking around my bed in circles. This is what this book is all about, not the human but the thing or rather the object becomes the centre of attention. Bernke Klein Zandvoort & Caroline Ruijgrok collected 24 essays of writers, artists and scientists that relate to this subject. The cover carries the title ‘Hoe de dingen ons bewegen’ meaning, ‘how the things move us’, which is a strong textual translation of what you can expect from the book. Moving towards the inside, the typographic layout being different on every page emphasises both the topic and the movement of your eyes. The size of this book is also notable, since it is slightly bigger than a traditional size, making it an object standing on its own. I encourage everyone to change the position of their bed every once in a while, and to read these stories in bed before you go to sleep.
