Het Almeerderstrand is in transitie; er komt nieuw strand bij en er komen steeds meer bezoekers om te genieten van de omgeving.

Didactiek als kunstvorm

De afgelopen jaren houd ik me bezig met het idee van de ‘docent als kunstenaar’. Zo geef ik les op de Willem de Kooning Academie aan de docentenopleiding en geef ik gastlessen aan de ArtEZ Zwolle, HKU Utrecht en de Breitner Academie in Amsterdam.

Dust Particles

The project Dust Particles was an ode to dust. From shipyard to elementary school, from art fair to farm; every location has its own history, and with that, its own kind of dust. At 11 locations in Amsterdam and its surrounding areas, several columns were placed where one could view dust using a microscope.

Data Tours

In April and May 2016, I will give several unique tours in the historical city centre of Amsterdam. The tours will focus on illustrating different types of data connected to tourist sites. For example, the amount of bricks used in a building, the type of garbage in containers on a specific street or lists of significant dates.

Infinite Coastline

Infinite Coastline Until the end of June 2015, I was artist in residence in Cádiz, South of Spain with Linea de Costa. There I measured the rugged coastline with instruments that I especially designed for this. The results of this research were shown both in public spaces as well as at the museum affiliated with the Linea de Costa.

Being part of De Parasiet, an art collective, I helped design an Art Tarot pack using the Museum van Bommel van Dam’s collection. The Art Tarot can be used as an instrument to predict the future, to obtain life lessons or simply as a board game.

Letting go

The research took place in the open during the busy summer period and many children helped spontaneously.
