New sound art installation in Surrey, England.

It contains about 5000 chrome bicycle bell caps with a height of 20 cm - 100 cm. It's about 10 meters long and 3,5 meters wide. The high bells are capturing strong winds what's putting them together in a soft tickling noise.
In autumn a giant Oak tree nearby takes over and plays the installation with its falling acorns...

First stage of installation A Time Capsule of Life is complete.

This is the first stage of the new installation 'A Time Capsule of Life' before completion. Coming sunday October the 6th my latest solo exhibition will be opened for public from 3 - 6 pm in Het Glazen Huis, Amstelpark, Netherlands.

Curated by Alice Smit of Zone2Source.

A Time Capsule of Life is a moving and sound producing sculpture, the structure of which derives from a seed; a complete survival package. The sculpture is created from plastic bags, a contemporary mode of distribution of daily goods which, connected together, form a transparent structure of cells and conduits. By connecting the plastic bags with air tubes the bags are pumped up by the movement of the audience, bringing the seed to life.

The sphere seed with the first 470 pvc air tubes.
Diameter 3 m and 470 plastic bags.

New installation at DordtYart is finished!

I can proudly present my new installation / sculpture 'For Whom the Tides Toll' at DordtYart Art Foundation. It is still to be seen en to hear till the end of september 2013. After that it will be in the next year show as well.

"For Whom the Tides Toll' imagines the five major waters in the Biesbosch nature park where DordtYart is situated. The changing of the tides in the harbor nearby causes a change of tone in the organ pipes. Low water gets a low tone and Hi water gets high tones.

The glass vases are to close two holes in the wooden air structure. By evaporating the water out of the vase the glass bulb will get down en shuts the hole in the airway. This will increase the volume.
