I tried to focus on the handicraft and human activity part. Together with Michiel Jenner (an independent musician) we created two pieces of work. For this one we started with a simple empty wine bottle. It was the starting point, but we both tried to make it eerie or take it away from it’s normal surroundings. Make it different. Michiel made music with sounds he extracted from the bottle and I focused on it’s shapes and shadows using black and white photography. Start the music and flip through the photo’s. Enjoy!
