Why this work
“To visually represent Robinson Crusoe’s wild life in a book cover: The DoeDeMee project gave me the possibility to dive into this breathtaking story again. The struggle between Nature and Culture is one important theme in the book. Robinson, finding himself alone on a deserted island, tried having a system by counting the days of his existence alone. But this system slowly got eaten up by nature and wild life through his encounter with Friday. The book cover is in Arabic: it reads Daniel Defoe, and under it: Robinson Crusoe.”
