From November 7 till December 12 I present a new sound piece in Galerie Hoogenbosch in Gorredijk during the exhibition 'Waanzin' ('Madness'). The piece entitled 'Onder het oppervlak' ('Below the surface') is the result of my first attempts to create a binaural underwater listening experience. It reveals a very noisy subsurface world during a nice and sunny day at the shore of a lake.


At July 18 2021, my publication entitled Liminal Presence was launched (limited edition) at the Bierumerschool. The text looks back on the project De Grens van Eemsdelta that I worked on at the Bierumerschool in 2020. It tries to explore one final border, the one between sketch and reflection.


Due to the End-of-life of Flash I am currently in the process of reanimating my site. Present status is that only the header buttons are functioning. The rest will be clickable in due time!

Online exhibition: Border Being.

As a scientist I used to approach nature with exact measuring instruments. With the obtained data I contributed to the construction of theoretical models that describe natural phenomena. Since then I have been intrigued by the mimetic nature of those theories and other narratives with which we try to grasp the world we live in. Although mimesis comes in many different forms —from myths to models— it is definitely a very fundamental aspect of human life.

As an artist I still explore my environment, now by using sound related tools. I work with field recordings and appropriate mimetic phenomena from both language and music, such as onomatopoeia, scores or composition techniques like the canon or fugue. With the resulting material I compose sonic reflections of my surroundings that allow me to find a place within it - more than any abstract model could achieve. In that way I probe the spacetime continuum of my own existence as well as that of our being in general, hoping to find an answer to the underlying question: what is being somewhere?

And that over and over again.
