Quo Vadis

Quo Vadis is latin - it means "Where are we going?" I was in Vietnam working with a big stone sculpture. The young son of a Norwegian artist was spending his days playing Pacman on his Gameboy utility. I was fascinatedby the clinch of the eternal and the postmodern in his appearance. Young boys have always played war games but to do it on an electronic screen is of late origin. The helmet is inspired by Rembrandt´s classic painting The Golden Helmet, but the figures on it are not Roman Emperors but contemporary Robot figures.
