"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." Marcel Proust.
What happens if we discover our close surroundings as if we’ve never stepped foot on them?
In Project Hortum (2021) I investigated the different layers of the backyard of my studio during the first and second COVID-19 Lockdown in the Netherlands, in an attempt to fulfill my desire for discovery.
This resulted in a 130 pages book about discovering your own surroundings as a self named backyard scientist.
