Echo and Narcissus Echo and Narcissus
Polderlicht @ home was inspired on the first Biennale for International Light Art in the western of Germany: sixty light structures were shown on sixty different locations spread over six towns.
And so was born the idea of a trail through the Oosterparkbuurt, alongside a range of private addresses.
At each address will therefore, be a work of art with light installations, sound or video art.
Polderlicht is a very diverse event, in all cases and seeks a relationship with the place where it is installed and where possible with the resident (user) of that place.
In my interpretation of the poem “Echo and Narcissus” written by the Roman poet Ovid as part of his work “Metamorfoses”
Echo is the ceiling rose at the biologist house where there is a suggestion of a lamp.
The appearance of the lamp is created by the reflection of a miniature drawing (a colourful rosseton) projected on a mirror, the Narcissus.
So Narcissus gives light to Echo, with the aural effect on the ceiling. It´s in fact, the antithesis of the poem.
Composition in Backwards

Composition in Backwards, 2010 Composition in Backwards Composition in Backwards
A site specific installation in the Rode Wijn terminal.
The installation is based on analogue photography and physical phenomenon (reflection).
Reflecting on a mirror, a slide of a house in demolition of The Hague; refers to the world in decadence being a metaphor of truth.
The slide is overexposed to the light so the composition change tonality everyday until it will, through time, disappear.

I called this experiment “Horizontal painting”.
I took out the real lamp from the ceiling and put it on the floor.
The real lamp gets projected into a canvas disposed horizontally and hangs from the roof.

The opaque projector or epidiascope is a device which displays solid materials by shining a bright lamp onto the object from above.
“rE-VersO” is a homemade multi-projector (opaque projector or epidiascope) that projects 52 images from different angles.
What this epidiascope projects is the interior of a cardboard yurt made out of collected boxes donated by ‘strangers’, ‘art lovers’ and friends; it makes it a ‘social sculpture’.
“rE-VersO” is based on principles of optics, physics and natural magic aiming to recall our way of seeing things in reverse; just as our eye does before the brain analysis.
In this work I am exploring ancient visual techniques in order to propose a reflection on our perception of the real world, the precariousness and poverty. The after image of the box is a kind of portrait of the world nowadays.
The experience of “rE-VersO” is guided by a mysterious atmosphere of cardboard and an intense light.
