BOB & I | Performances August 2019
Last August Bob & I episode 1, 2, 3 were performed by a team of 4 dancers from Mexico, Colombia, the Netherlands and Japan!
Have your own BoB & I experience! Being human you need your freedom ‘open borders’ But you also need ‘Isolation’ to see who you are and where you are going. Identity Is to be meaningful and startst with being recognized.
Bob & I In other words: “To live within restrictions and freedom”
A Cube for the mind.
As a designer and artist I created a portal between different worlds trough which people can move from one world to the other and can make transition happen. Movement makes the mind free and open to new ideas. I think we need living rooms for the mind because there is no room for the human mind anymore these days. By creating a cube for the mind I try to give humans space ‘to be’. There is a landscape inside where your soul can be recognised. The landscape of Imprint. I want to invite people to enter the cube and have an experience of their own.

Painting the Elements
Just finished a small series based on the 4 elements Earth, Air, Water & Fire and inspired by the performance "Memory of Light" episode 1 of Bob & I.
At the moment I am working on a new series of paintings based on the principle of openess, transparancy and isolation. Figurative v.s. abstract and I want to explore different dimensions of perception.
