Statue of Saint Bartholomew, who was skinned-alive by the Romans for not renouncing his christian-faith. In this statue, the sculptor depicts Bartholomew with muscles, bones, and veins for all to see. Draped around his shoulders and waist is his own skin. (Another Ghostly Statue:René de Chalon)

これはいわゆる企業小説ということができるかと思うのですが、一般的な企業小説が持つ硬いイメージを打ち破るような本に仕上げたく、体裁も仮フランス装を考えているので、何か斬新な装画をお願いします、という依頼でした。

絵を描くための資料を少しいただいたのですが、それらがオフィスビルの写真だったりしたので、これでは従来通りのいわゆる企業小説のイメージそのままになってしまいますと申し上げ、会社や企業という典型的なアイコンから離れた場面を小説中に探したところ、断崖の上に建つ家のシーンに行き当たりました。下段のラフにあるように青い空と青い海でも良かったのですが、そこから一捻りして、夕陽に染まったように見えるピンク色の海ではあるが、空は漆黒の夜空(表四には三日月が見えていますが)という取り合わせにして、少しミステリアスで不穏な空気を表現しました。そしてごく小さくではありますが、海に臨む家の庭にどこからともなく光に照らされている登場人物の男女二人を描写しました。

Disarming Design from Palestine


Disarming Design from Palestine is an inclusive design label that presents functional products from Palestine, that provide an alternative narrative from what you might usually find in the high street. The collection includes objects such as hourglasses that use cement from the separation wall, a dress made out of one keffiyeh, embroidered car decorations, scarfs depicting landscapes, olive leaves as earrings and an impossible chess game with water tanks and watch towers. The growing collection of products is presented on-line and through a traveling exhibition.* As a collection it aims to represent Palestinian culture in its current reality and reflect upon the function of art in situations of conflict.
The goods are developed, designed and produced by contemporary designers, artists and students in collaboration with local artisans and producers. During several ‘create-shops’ they engage in an enriching design dialogue with small emerging businesses and international colleagues. The project aims to catalyze the development of design as a discourse in Palestine.
