Omschrijving werk

I am interested in how knowledge is generated in the absence of evidence. A lack of evidence creates a grey area in which what we know from faith and and what we know from fact becomes harder to distinguish. This area is the starting point of my projects. Though interested in the idea of photography as evidence and document, it is the fallacy of the tools we use to order reality, and the limitations of seeing, that I often reflect on in my research-led projects. The subjective act of producing and interpreting information is a red thread through all of my work, which often takes enigmatic historical events or scientific ideas as its starting point. In my projects I use photography, do experiments, dig up information, interview, interpret findings, calculate and measure; all man-invented tools used to create an understanding of the world around us, to seemingly create order within these enigmatic subjects that are rooted in reality. The results are detailed works that balance between knowledge and perception.

The Mushroom Club
Titel The Mushroom Club
Jaartal 2017
Omschrijving Installation overview of 'The Mushroom Club': For years, it was the best kept secret in the Netherlands: The Mushroom Club, a former NATO headquarters inside a mountain on the Dutch-Belgian border during the Cold War. This underground network of tunnels was stripped in 1992 and officially erased on paper. What is left is an empty quarry, objects taken out of their original context and the often inconsistent recollections of former employees. Since this headquarters is erased both on paper and physically, I had to depend on other forms of reconstructing an image of the place. Using different kinds of hard and soft evidence, from fingerprints on paper to memories of former employers, I reconstructed the headquarters enabling others to visit the place. The final installation comprises five elements that are based on this fragmented information, embracing their inconsistencies and uncertainties. All elements together serve as fictive fragments - building blocks - that allow the viewer to reconstruct a mental image of the headquarters.

Fluorescent Signals
Titel Fluorescent Signals
Jaartal 2015
Omschrijving Installation overview of 'Fluorescent Signals': The experiments carried out in these case studies measure the plant’s stress level when put under potentially damaging conditions. Each plant was exposed to different circumstances: fire, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, boiling water, drought and root absorption of vinegar. Plants always emit fluorescence, but when a plant is under stressful conditions the fluorescent emittance increases. This fluoresence is invisible to the human eye. If we could see beyond our limited visible spectrum, plants would appear to us as glowing organisms, directly responsive to their environment.
