The world we live in 2016


I was asked to help with some visuals during the “The World We Live In” event by students from the conservatory of Groningen. This was a special day to raise awareness for global political, geological, environmental and social issues that keep the students awake at night. Each of the students, guest musicians and teachers composed pieces of classical music.


I worked together with Rosie Taekema, Miriam den Boer, Melisa Delgado and Iveta Gaile on a piece called Leaving. I tried to encapsulate the concept of freedom in the visuals as well as the fear of freedom, having nothing to hold on to.
