In this high resolution video installation, De Heer shows us a typically Dutch suburban area in which emergency situations slowly reveal themselves. Year: 2008 Director/Producer: Maarten Isaäk de...

In a relation like that of a clock to a man shows first a panoramic view of a church, where a woman (Toesja de Vries) is seen kneeling by the stairs to the altar. She is in a fixed position with her head bowed and her hands placed in front of her. The next shot is an extreme close-up of the female hands assembling a small watch movement. The mechanism seems to be broken. With the needle like precision she attempts to trigger the motion but each time it comes to a halt again. ‘Watchmaker...

The light from the first stars in the Universe had a dramatic impact on their surroundings. Understanding the effects of this light is the goal of the two simulations showcased in this video document. Comparative radiative and non-radiative simulations describe the density of the gas in the early Universe on scales much greater than our Milkyway. Taking the difference between these two simulations makes it very obvious where the light has reached, and how the light has changed the space near...

I wondered if anyone monitored them, and if any one person could possibly watch them all at the same time. I decided to take on my naturally reserved personality by using the webcams to communicate my most secret thoughts to an audience who may or...
