I created a video teaser for my upcoming project ‘De Meeuwen van Tinbergen’, about the life and work of Nobel Prize laureate Niko Tinbergen (1907–1988).
‘De Meeuwen van Tinbergen’ will be an interdisciplinary project in cooperation with Cowboy bij Nacht, Staatsbosbeheer, Museum Boerhaave Leiden, Institute of Biology (Leiden University) and Oerol Festival Terschelling. More information can be found on the project blog ↪︎demeeuwenvantinberge…
Once every hour, on the city hall square, Cowboy by Nacht will present a ‘concert for seagulls’, presented through an 8‑channel surround sound installation, placed around the square. In between these short interventions (inspired by Hitchcock’s “The Birds”), we will invite the audience to take part in a little video-interview, while they get a special treatment by a make-up artist.
More on this project (which is scheduled for summer 2011) in future posts, for now, check the project-blog (in dutch), or the back of the flyer below.
WORKSPACE is the annual project competition through which ZAAL5 seeks out talented filmmakers and artists working with film, new (interactive) media, video installations, performance and visuals. ZAAL5 is the in-house project space for media arts at Filmhuis Den Haag. This multifunctional room is dedicated to programmes and projects using moving images that are not displayed in regular film halls.
I was one of the 5 selected artists (out of 45 applicants) that had to pitch his or her project proposal on the 25th of april 2010, in front of a professional jury, to win one of the two available prizes of € 9000,- for the realization and presentation of the project.
