Art Journal 2008 - Future


When I was in High School the government came up with this slogan "A smart girl is prepared for her future". The goal was to encourage girls to choose not only the typical girl subjects for their study such as languages, but to choose math and science instead.
I sucked at math so I went to university..doing a typical 'girl' study; Spanish Language and Culture.
I used the slogan on the bottom of the page together with the crystal ball to make the point that you never know what the future will bring...and there is no guarantee that having studied math instead of Spanish would have changed my life significantly.

Ooo jaaa, die kreet, dat weet ik nog hahahaha. Maar mijn scheikundeleraar miste een halve vinger en dat was niet echt een stimulerende factor om voor zijn 'riskante' vak te kiezen ;) Buiten dat had ik ├╝berhaupt geen aanleg voor alles wat in de buurt komt van wiskunde... Wat een geweldige traditie ben je gestart voor Bincke!
