I started making sequences in 1992. Before then I used photos in all kinds of ways like in collages or film scripts. When making my first sequences I had seen some by others but only once in a while. Remember, at that time the Internet hardly had any pictures. Then one day, in September 1993, I was visiting the Museum of Modern Art in New York, when I suddenly saw there was an exhibition called “Multiple Images: Photographs Since 1965 From the Collection”... There it was, dozens of artworks like I was making (or trying to make) at home. Not that I thought I was the only one working with multiple images, but an exhibition in a museum about this subject astounded me. The multiple images and sequences shown there where among others Duane Michals classic Chance Meeting, the Polaroid mosaics from David Hockney and the industrial cooling towers from Bernd and Hilla Becher.
