Esmé Valk's Triptych of Knitted Televisions Inspired By a Sad Story ...

I made this triptych after reading a short item in the newspaper. It described a letter-box filled with unread letters and junk mail. None of the neighbours knew the man who lived in that flat, he hardly came outside and always had his blinds closed. When the authorities broke in they found the man’s decomposed body in a chair. Open on his lap a TV guide showed that he had died over a year ago.
