It is said that once you have heard it, you will recognise it time and again. Silence. For some, amidst the cacophony of life, it is a pleasant sound. They seek for it. Both around as well as within themselves. Sometimes it seems that the silence within can best be heard when the inner landscape echoes the outer. The people that live in ‘the forest’, as the inhabitants like to call it, shape life on the outside in accordance with what it sounds like from within.
For an entire summer I paid a weekly visit to the inhabitants of ‘the forest’, somewhere in the Netherlands. My new project, entitled Aurora, will be presented at the opening of DocuDenHaag.
