The work 'i can't'- consists of a hyperrealistic figure standing at an urinal, peeing and singing 'Memory' by Barbara Streisand. The work refers to the 'Streisand effect', which is known as a form of reverse psychology. It involves steering people's behavior in the desired direction by telling them what not to do, only to end up doing the exact opposite.
 

David Roth, born 22 February, 1984, son of two sculptors, was exposed to art at an early age, but decided to pursue fashion first. Together with his friend Carl Jakob Haupt he founded the fashion blog 'Dandy Diary', which was to make history through various actions, including a fashion porn, a streaker at the Dolce & Gabbana Fashion Show and legendary parties at the Berlin Fashion Week. After the era of 'Dandy Diary', Roth moved to the French countryside to concentrate more on art.

Roth prefers to work with serial video formats in which he dances for 100 days, drinks until he falls off five beer crates stacked on top of each other, or sings about all those moments of his everyday life for which the casualness would normally have ensured quick oblivion.
