Bolted - Maarten Kolk
Maarten Kolk is the author of Bolted a book that I just received on my desk and let me tell you I was VERY happy to have it. This young dutch designer (graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven) presented first his collection of incredible images about vegetables in Milan a couple of years ago. His work is based on his vegetable garden, where Maarten registered the plants growth. He took notes about what happened and doing so he makes us more interested in the beautiful results, reminding us that we know so little about the vegetables we buy in the supermarket. We just look for a perfect pakkage of salad, but the real product has a complete different beauty, colours and shapes. The book is a photo document and the work of Maarten has been even called "eco-art". I think his concept is a way to make us more aware of the importance of nature in our life.
