Since seven years I am working on the project City Scripts. City Scripts
is a long-term public art project for which I use different media.
I observe and record everyday behaviour of users of (semi) public spaces.
I am interested in ordinary events like waiting at a subway platform, visiting
a supermarket, posting a letter at a mailbox or just simply walking on the
street. With the projects I try to ‘ritualise’ events that give
shape to our everyday life, but that we hardly always perceive.
The way people behave and move in public space is an important signal for
experiencing the human condition at a certain place. The body language of
people reveals a layer of consciousness that is kept hidden by verbal communication.
By showing this mainly unconscious body language I am trying to offer people
new perspectives on places they use day-by-day.
