Audio/Visual/Light Installation


Virtual Audio/Visual/Light Installation

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, July 2022


Strive for status and success, be competitive, join the rat race – from an early age these
notions are imposed on us by society. I have always struggled with these beliefs however,
and have always wondered how they relate to me personally.
That’s why this project is so very special to me: I’m thrilled to present the next phase of
OUTSIDER, an immersive installation for daily grind weary adults.
I am grateful to have been able to collaborate with animator Jing Yue Zwaan,
interdisciplinary artist Nikzad Arabshahi, sound artist Mehrnaz Khorrami, and screenwriter
Vincent Vanneste for this project. Their unique visions, positive energy and creativity have
certainly taken OUTSIDER to the next level.
