44 - A Tarot For Sietse Van Erve

What is the 44 Tarot?


44 is a physical tarot deck, a series of 78 videos, a musical performance interface using RFID tagged cards, an album, a series of stories, and a set of talks about storytelling, abstraction, archetypes. inspiration and things not always mapping onto other things.

It began as a commission to rework 44 audio pieces by the Dutch musician Sietse Van Erve, and evolved first into a tribute to him and his inspiration on my own work, and then into a parable for my life, with the 22 Trump cards representing 22 key people from my life.
