Touch the Sky
(2023) - video-installation

More than an hour of footage of skies, clouds and sunrises with an iPhone 12. In this audio-visual installation, the outside world can be seen through a plexiglass screen. This simultaneously references Dutch landscape art and Apple screensavers. By bringing the natural elements indoors, a simulated reality is created in which the distinction between real and artificial nature is blurred.

Touch the Sky was shown at De Sloot Amsterdam and Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam as part of Life Potential groupshow. Curated by Leon Stoffelen and Ersin Eken in 2023.
