The first (wooden) houses at the Nieuwendijk were built around 1225. They were the oldest residential houses of Amsterdam. I have been living on the remains for over ten years now. The street has never been as desolate as it is now. I am making a new videowork about the Nieuwendijk. In my head it has changed into a river. It is very calming. I hope it will never leave.

The River, A drawn videowork about the Nieuwendijk. To take for a walk.

I have started a Crowdfunding Campaign at VOORDEKUNST to make a new video about the Nieuwendijk in Amsterdam, during Covid 19. Watch the trailer (with subs) here .
