The village that I live in, has a lot of talented artist. With a few of them we form some kind of collective, we call ourselves Stuw-Art, named to the bridge that connects our tiny, backdated town to the big world outside.
Every month we gather on the coolest place ever; a nostalgic old factory, hidden behind trees on a remote island, that reminds me of a pirates island; no rules and sovereignty . Every now and then, we exhibit there, sometimes we organize other events. These happenings are always inspiring.
Back in 2014, we had a exhibition going with the theme ” The magic of Air”.
In collaborance with Robert van Heumen, a brilliant sound composer, I worked on a movie clip. Robert recorded the sinister sounds of the present machines and transformed them in eerie and mesperizing sound scapes. I took the same machines and tools on film and edited them to match the rhythm and vibe.

The process of editing really got me going, so I decided the try an animation as well. I never really did that before, but I absolutely enjoyed every second of making and I’m definitely going to make another one in future!
Since we are a collective, there was so much more art to discover of a bunch of talented artists. Hereby a few pics are included in order to give you an impression. Find out more about the other artists on http://www.stuw-art.nl/
