Overview of projects (in chronological order)
The tree as a symbol, the tree as a centre piece of society, the tree in transformation through time, if you collect these themes you'll end up in Sambeek the home of the oldest tree of the Netherlands. In our project "Linde van Sambeek" we used the tree as a tool to get deeper in the local society of Sambeek. Through interviews with local people we were able to create a frame of reference. This project was in collaboration with Yukari Matsumoto and Stichting wereld boom and exhibited at Club Solo Breda.

23rd of January 2012. It's Chinese new year and 130 million migrant workers travel back to their hometown. At Xiamen Univeristy I was able to interview 48 students living far away from their home towns. I asked about their home town and what Home means for them. This resulted in a photoshoot, a catalogue, 48 Migrants of Xiamen and a exhibition at Tkk Moa in Xiamen. In collaboration with, Sayaka Abe, Manus Sweeny and Yukari Matsumoto. Supported by Nomura, Dutch Consulate and SICA
Main railway station Shanghai 2011, I just arrived by train and many people using homemade bags to transport their cargo. This inspired me to create a serie of folding bags, by using found materials. The outside of the bag is made out of plastics which was used to cover and to protect objects at construction sites and the inside is made out of textile, originally used in fashion or funiture found on the streets. The end result was presented at CBK Oost Amsterdam.

Eeuw van de stad
2009 will be remembered ast the year that for the first time in history more people are living in the city than on the country side. With this fact the Dutch broadcast company VPRO asked us to create a multi-media platform in order to combine and to archive radio and tv items about architecture and migration. The platform was designed under supervision of Sandberg instituut Amsterdam & Captain Video. And in collaboration with Femke Herregraven, Chris Lee, Katja Novitskova, Henrik van Leeuwen.
The ‘Temporary Museum Amsterdam’ is the parallel programme to the annual art fair Art Amsterdam, since 2006. The floor plan of this imaginary museum is the entire city and the halls are made up by Amsterdam’s most prominent art institutes, like Stedelijk Museum, Foam and Appel Arts Centre. By means of design the imaginary becomes a temporal reality in an architecture that bears no walls, but establishes connections and meaning. Visitors of the art fair are provided with a free passe-partout that gives access to all ‘halls’ of the Temporary Museum. Each individual institute realizes extra programmes, like debates, openings, performances, guided tours, dinners and parties. Every edition an extended ‘Temporary Museum guide’ came along, including the programme, a map and critical articles. Under supervision of Sandberg Institute & Bureau DeVet. Design team, Annelou van Griensven, Camila Bustamante, Pinar Dermidag, Femke Herregraven, Viola Renate, Henrik van Leeuwen, Katja Novitskova, Michael Oustamanlikes, Mathias Schreiber.
