Hi Julian et al

As an example have a look at these images:

Cigarette Girl - Before and After unpacking, micro-graffiti in public  

http://nictoglobe.com/new/room/New%20Room/ma201111b.html (Before) &
http://nictoglobe.com/new/room/New%20Room/ma201111a.html (After)

In these works I try to expose/comprehend the underlying 'field of  
affects & addictions' caused by my and others depencies on  
'stimularica', where the particular nicotine addiction is both viewed  
from a personal and from a societal/consumerist point of view

By making these works I feel as if the shadows of deathly intoxants  
are revealed, not only by the act of drawing but also by - literrally  
- seperating the 'Package' from the 'Contents', by handdrawing and  
scratching with a knife on the 'surface' of the package - which is  
transparant and translucent - and afterwards seperating the  
transparency from it, leaving only the transparent package imprinted  
with / written on with a subverted 'meaning' of the original 'empty'  

Resulting in residual artifacts pointing to the rupture from being  
part of an affect/addiction  - as a person - and the more broader  
field of 'being' affected /addicted by a consumer oriented society
