Image 1/2 The video installation: a grid of eighteen videos playing simultaneously. When I am creating work, I always do a lot of research. I travel a lot and use the impressions and experiences from these travels in the next steps of the creation process. For The Weather Forecast, I visited a man in South Holland that had rebuilt Noah’s Ark, according to the measurements that are given in the Bible. He did this because he believed that another deluge will soon be upon us
