Facing Value. Radical Perspectives from the Arts

March 23, 2017

‘Creating emptyness’ from THE FLOATING SPIRIT OF FRANK VAN KLINGEREN Featured in this publication.

This book followed a series of exhibitions at Stroom Te hague about the creation of value through invitation, improvising and uniting. Under the title ‘Facing Value. Radical Perspectives from the Arts’ the authors explore the possibility of a world based on value, where rules as unproductivity, sharing and support are key; trying to reformulate value as a constituting factor in an open and caring society. And with their bold and clear graphic design Elisabeth Klement and Laura Pappa tied it all together into a light and logical whole.

KAF Almere | You Are Here

January 1, 2017

A sneak preview ( iPhone filmed ) of the most complex project i have never worked on. ‘You Are Here’ is an interactive installation with the city map on touch-screens; developed for Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland [ KAF ]. It allows the inhabitants of the city to virtually explore the ‘new town’. The interactive map has been divided by themes, city blocks, and historical periods: from pre-history ( archeology ) to future urban and landscape developments.

I have been working on the organization of the archive and on the production of short documentaries and photo series. Some art prints from my project ‘Freedomland’ have also be exhibited to create a better visual context.

A special thank to Mrs. Judith Flapper for taking me with her into this amazing journey.
