Thoughts about experimental city rooftop structures

What about little but wonderful glow in the dark “urban gems” landing on top of the city’s dark roofs. Something that draws attention as if it was a curious visitor from another place, inviting you to stand still, and be quiet, in it’s sky high “head space”.

London Night Light

By UncategorizedNo Comments

Beautiful example of night lights in Londen; The Principal London while under construction, Russell Square. Its the rythm that fits the urban character, but the blurryness and slight color differences makes them become a staged composition on its own.

Levend Licht

By all, art installation, current projects, design, free work, light installationNo Comments

Levend Licht (Light Life) is a light installation proposed for the empty bridge houses in Rotterdam, a port city in the Netherlands. It is currently in development and will be realised in May 2017.

The project sheds light on the exceptional world of the bridge keeper’s profession and it’s partly gone and faded functionality. At the same time, Levend Licht suggests some kind of newly arrived surreal activity going on in these buildings.

Levend Licht is financially supported by Rotterdam CityLab010.

“Het einde van de wereld”

By all, film/photography, free work, observationNo Comments

“The end of the world” is how my grand father calls the grave yard. In the process of growing older he forgets words, procedures and relations due to Alzheimer’s desease. I am documenting his presence and the particular and humble way he interacts with his surroundings.

This summer I started working on a “promiscuous” clock.  A clock that questions the actual effect that our time structure has on our lives. Wouldn’t it be more natural to let time follow our behaviour instead of the other way around?
