In December 2022 I graduated from the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam, with the installation and book ECHO.
How will life look like in 50 years? Or in 100 years? Dark clouds gather over our society, showing us the need to act. But, are we brave enough to see this? Do we have the courage to think about our world and to think about what needs to do be done to keep it liveable? So far, clear signals haven’t led to changes, but aimlessly bounce off in the void. Déjà Vu. Déjà Entendu. What world are we entering? Do we know the world we are living in right now? ECHO is the rendition of my fear regarding the future of the world; of what we can expect if we were to continue down this road. Will we still have a place to call ‘home’ in the future?

At the moment I’m working, together with other artists, to organise some exhibitions. Next to that, I’m also working to rebuild and expand the video to a live performance.
So, to be continued…
