Censorism – project by Ruud Janssen

Censorism is the when you self censor a work before it is publically displayed.

I made stickers (and lateron also Joel Cohen – the stickerdude made a few more) and distributed them into the network. Stimulating people to censor something in their outgoing mail.  I ordered 20 roles of 1,000 stickers. With the last role I started a project that only is documenten on facebook.

Experimenting with the 3D pen resulted in an interesting collection of objects. I also like to call it ‘writing letters’ because the objects are letters or even envelopes. To document the findings I also wrote two articles that are formally published. have a look at them to read:
