The tower
February 2012
Part of the poem VII by Alberto Caeiro (Fernando Pessoa):

Hide the horizon, push your eyes far away from all the sky,
Make us smaller because they take away what our eyes can give us,

And make us poor because our only wealth is seeing.

I long to rise above the buildings towards the horizon.

Escaping from/to paradise
April 2012

A secret garden does not exist without its walls. I made this photo series about longing. Inspired by the time I spent working in an orphanage in a jungle town in Peru. Although I though this was paradise like, monthly children escaped over the walls. Girls and boys looking for the world they heard about from friends in school. No rules, dancing until you drop, adventure, excitement, but it meant danger as well, insecurity and fighting for yourself. They left a world full of delicious food, warmth and security in search of freedom.

The pictures (63 to 43 cm) are printed on Pet-g.

Winnie Plas and I have been collecting 14 000 old books together with the library: De nieuwe bibliotheek and all the inhabitants of Almere to give them a new life.

In this big project we worked together with enthusiastic volunteers from Almere to build our city of books in the entry of the Nieuwe bibliotheek.

During the building there have been lively discussions with visitors about the work.

Wild vine, killing machine
June 2019

Existing of 400 plastic waste ivy leaves cut for a suffocating tree ornament. I can hardly breathe, by the plastic everywhere, in the sea, in the waves, when I swim all those little pieces in my hair, on my skin, in the shop I cannot get around it.
