playful identities

Cartoon characters fuel our imagination. For the duration of the book or movie, they supply us with an alternative playful identity; an escape from the dull monotonous everyday into a more joyful, colorful and creative life. For some, like for instance this Japanese girl dressed up as the Wikipedia mascotte Wikipe-tan, the flatness of the pictures just isn't enough. They are so captivated by these imaginative identities that they decide to live the life. Make them real.

From our Fake for Real series.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
