Imagine Film Festival will take you to infinity and beyond

A film that takes a story beyond realism into the universe of fantasy and imagination is a magical adventure. A storyteller that is able to show you a world, different from the one we live in, is a blissful experience. The child within is reborn and it provides an insight into dimensions you would have never been able to travel to on your own.

He’s the kind of guy every girl wants to be with and every man wants to be. Most recently, Sietse has been involved in some weather forecasting and festival related activity. Basically, he tells us when it’s time to officially embrace the sun (De Zon) in Amsterdam. We asked him some questions about his remarkable mission. (..more)

Talking discipline, structure and balance with artist Daan Roukens

Mar 14, 2014 |  by  |  Art

In all the craziness of moving to a new studio and getting everything all ready for his latest solo expo on March 20th at Public, artist Daan Roukens caught a breath of fresh air and sat down with me for a coffee and a chat. And that’s exactly what we did; we talked about discipline, structure, balance and of course the magical neurotics of OCD. I couldn’t stop wondering, what drives Daan in his pursuit of art? (..more)
