THE SHOW
My field of work is the show, the magic of mise-en-scene. The show can be a theatre play, it can be an amusement park, it can be a dance party and a festival, it can be a staged reality, it can be a dream and an imagination. A show in the mind, an altered state, can be reached in many different ways, and I want to show a tip of that in my work. Specifically, I concentrate on different states of concentration. I work between reality and dream world, and shift between these worlds. A place to get confused, lose your mind and float off.

CURRENTLY
working for Bureau Caspar Conijn as spatial exhibition designer.
