As a way to stay close to what I believe is in the vein of Jacob Dahlgren´s artistic method, I wanted the T-shirts to be chosen indirectly. Or from within his working process, you could say. Therefore I decided that the show´s title would determine which T-shirts he would wear. Every letter in the eight words is represented by a number; A=1, B=2, C=3 etc. The numbers for each word are then added together. The sum you get determines which T-shirt Jacob puts on from his archive.

J-A-C-O-B: 10+1+3+15+2=31
D-A-H-L-G-R-E-N: 11+1+8+12+7+18+5+14=69
P-E-I-N-T-U-R-E: 16+5+9+14+20+21+18+5=108
A-B-S-T-R-A-I-T-E: 1+2+19+20+18+1+9+20+5=95
C-U-R-A-T-E-D: 3+21+18+1+20+5+4=72
B-Y: 2+25=27
M-A-G-N-U-S: 13+1+7+14+21+19=75
B-O-N-S: 2+15+14+19=50
