Nesting Box

The nesting box is a slightly oversized wooden nesting box with a video monitor and a speaker inside. The video monitor shows a man crying. Already from a distance you can hear the soft sound of crying that might also resemble birds’ twittering. The man cries, apparently without ever stopping – even sadder than that Dutch guy who disappeared from a sailing boat.

Suitcase Studies

Suitcase studies is a group of suitcases, where every suitcase hosts a miniature art exhibition space, complete with light, parquet and white walls. Among the miniature exhibitions are a series of architecture documentation, documenting airport chapels – the prayer or meditation rooms that can be found in most international airports and an animation based video installation, where the video projection is simulated by small LCD screens. The exhibitions in the suitcases reflect upon phenomena like origin, nostalgia, traveling and migration.
