    clip documentary Dutch Light : James Turrel There’s an ancient myth that the light in Holland is different from anywhere else, but it has never been put to the test. It’s the legendary light we see in paintings. The German artist Joseph Beuys, however, says that it lost its unique radiance in the 1950s, bringing an end to a visual culture that had lasted for centuries. Dutch Light breaks new ground by examining this renowned but elusive phenomenon. What is Dutch light? Is the light in Holland really different from that in other parts of the world? What is true, what is myth, what is fiction? And was Joseph Beuys right? Dutch Light addresses these fascinating questions. And it is an ode to light and to observation. It turns looking into a new experience. www.dutchlight.nl

          IN SILENCE TIME PASSES stainless steel - high-gloss, led-screen 6 x 1,7 m 2012-2013, Centre for the Arts & Heritage, Alkmaar, The Netherlands Commissioned by Municipality Alkmaar, The Netherlands. In 1918 a clock was placed high in the wall of the former technical school of Alkmaar. Ever since the clock is ticking, unstoppable. Nowadays the building offers accommodation to 19 private homes and the Center for the Arts & Heritage. The Center for the Arts & Heritage unites the Regional Archive Alkmaar, the Archaeological Center North-Holland and the Cultural Company North-Holland. What the 3 institutions connects with each other and what them connects with the private homes is the time; as the live of the residents slowly passes away the Center for the Arts & Heritage collects, conserves and reconstructs that same live. Tik, Tak. At het same time the unstoppable clock tics the time away, the time revives in the pendulum of an invisible clock using the images of that live archived by the Center.

                "Play it one more time for me La Ville Fumée ' A sound-art installation that works on hand made cigars and refers to the history of Eindhoven city, when it was one of the largest cigar-producing cities of Europe. At that time the city was also called ‘La Ville Fumée’. The installation is in many ways about nature versus culture. The technique used here has an almost machine like character, that is controlled and monitored by a natural and traditional item: the hand made cigar. Because each cigar has its own strength by the natural and traditional way of making, they all have their own fire rate. It is precisely this fact that the installation is not working in a predictable way but rather relates to a more or less natural rhythm. The installation has 4 tuners each control a recorder by means of pistons containing the hand-rolled cigars. There are 4 different recorders: a bass flute, alto, tenor, and a soprano. The pistons with the cigars and the recorders are both controlled by 2 abstract lungs. This sound-art burning cigar installation can be seen as a tribute to the former tobacco industry of Eindhoven city and its thousands of workers and craftsmen. The sound composition is a requiem for the former cigar production industry of Eindhoven. Dimensions: 500 x 500 x 120 cm Materials: silk, epoxy, wood, brass, hand made cigars, pvc pipes, recorders Year: 2013 Concept and production: Ronald van der Meijs http://www.ronaldvandermeijs.nl Location: Art Foundation De Fabriek, Eindhoven, Netherlands http://www.defabriekeindhoven.nl/
