    For photos and more videos please visit http://www.mirukim.com/ On the recommendation of Richard Vine (Art in America), I was invited to participate in the Fokus Łódź Biennale 2010 (September 11–October 10) in Łódź, Poland. More than fifty artists around the world were invited to create works along Piotrkowska Street, the main commercial street considered to be the longest boulevard in Europe. One of the main venues along the street was an abandoned concert hall, with a main stage area and many rooms where artists created site-specific installations. In that building I discovered a basement, and staged a performance piece for the opening day of the Biennale. I named it The Mudbath for Thick Skin. The original idea was to do the piece much longer than 6 hours, but the basement was extremely cold, so the physical challenge, which was much beyond the mental one, became a time limitation for health reasons. The mud in the performance was taken from one of smaller local farms, which are now becoming obsolete due to large industrial farms. One could only watch the performance through a peephole on a wooden door that was bolted shut. The main part of my work at the Biennale was a public installation on Piotrkowska Street, on the corner of the very busy intersection with Zielona Street. An image from the series "The Pig That Therefore I Am" was mounted on a commercial lightbox display of 3.75 meters by 2.5 meters.

      • "Desert Breath" | Land Art Installation | By D.A.ST. Arteam, Egypt (1997)

        Desert Breath Desert Breath is a collaborative site specific project created by D.A.ST. arteam, (Danae Stratou, Alexandra Stratou, Stella Constantinides). It is an Earth Work that covers 100.000 m2, in the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea in Egypt. Its construction consists of the displacement of 8.000 m3 of sand formed so as to create precise positive and negative conical volumes. The conical volumes form two interlocking spirals that move out from a common centre with a phase difference of 180 degrees in the same direction of rotation. The centre is a 30-metre diameter vessel formed in a W-shaped section and filled with water to its rim. The construction of Desert Breath began in June 1995 and was completed in March 1997. The project is rooted in our common desire to work in the desert. In our mind’s eye the desert was a place where one experiences infinity. We were addressing the desert as a state of mind, a landscape of the mind. The point of departure was the conical form, the natural formation of the sand as a material. It is a site-specific work that grows out of our perception of the site its self. Located between the sea and a body of mountains at the point where the immensity of the sea meets the immensity of the desert. The work functions on two different levels in terms of view point: from above as a visual image; from the ground a physical experience while walking the spiral pathway. Desert Breath still exists becoming through its slow disintegration, an instrument to measure the passage of time.

              This is the official making-of the Spencer Tunick installation in Amsterdam 2007, produced for Dream Amsterdam Foundation. Together with dutch filmdirector Mark de Cloe ('Het leven uit een dag') and eight of my interns I shot this film of an installation by American photographer Spencer Tunick. About 2000 people got naked at dawn in the streets of Amsterdam on June 3rd 2007. He did four sessions on several spots: 2000 nudes in Q-park, 100 women on bikes, 100 men in a gasstation and about 15 to 20 men and women in different combinations on a floating bridge at the Rozengracht. Such an amount of nudes together caused quite some uproar in the early morning.. especially the locals we're surprised to find a bunch of naked people on their doorstep. Organisation: Dream Amsterdam. Director: Mark de Cloe. Production/Assembly: Anouk Wouters. Camera: Qué Pasó.

                    Lost Boys (an Interactive Agency) invited me to do something for their agency Christmas card. We took this as an opportunity to reinterpret the Christmas tree and its role as the traditional focal point for a communal space. 'Mobile Mobile' is a six metre circumference interactive sculpture, and signature piece for the entrance of the Lost Boys London Brick Lane studio. To cut a long story short, after a company-wide upgrade the agency had a lot of old mobiles gathering dust. We took these, built and hoisted a gigantic interactive chandelier/mobile that plays Christmas jingles in their reception. To add a little xmas spice to the mix, anyone could go online, compose and play their own jingle (and enjoy annoying the hell out of people waiting around in the reception). This was achieved by playing the thing live, using your computer keyboard from a web browser.

In January the mobiles will be replaced with another hanging media, then updated month in, month out. Mobile Mobile is just one in a line of many great lo-fi art/build concepts; from the Design Museum's Aquarium, Digital By Design, Troika and The Cloud, the Printer Bleeping Thingy (I can't remember who did it), all the great work by W+K, and of course, AKQA's wonderful microwaves from last Christmas. Looking forward to many more to come. Good Cause: One of the largest problems facing the developing world is a lack of trained physicians.

                      For four years, each day I took the same tram to art academy. Why would you then look out the window with curiosity when there is no reason to expect anything new. I decided to change the daily journey for my fellow passengers and myself. I wouldn't move the tramway track, but maybe I could add something. Make something so that what already exists would look very different now. Man-eater is part of my graduation project "Remake Reality" for the Royal Academy of Art, The Netherlands.
