I prefer observing, collecting images, trying to be open and be in the middle of the moment to capture the beauty of the accidental. I prefer using these slices of life in a rather direct, simple manner. Although I use a digital camera, the films are more linked to cinematography than video, I guess.
My videos have been shown for example in Kunstuitleen Utrecht (the Netherlands), Saksala ArtRadius (Finland) and at the Discus Event, Sheffield, UK.
Besides making video's, I write (professionally) on subjects like (experimental) cinema and video, music and soundart (field recordings, improv, electro-acoustic, soundscape, etc.), art, photography and architecture, since 2000.
Worked at the Netherlands Filmmuseum from 1990 - 2000, identifying and making reconstructions of films from early filmhistory.
