Rafaël Rozendaal describes Haiku as “non physical artworks”. His curiosity in Japanese culture brought his attention to the tradition of Haiku. First as notes on his smartphone, then posts and tweets, their appearance began to explore the physical wor(l)d as large wall paintings. Rafaël Rozendaal’s Haiku are comments on subjects such as „the complexities of the digital age“ and the driving forces of today’s societies.
