    Just a question from a non-scientist: when light is the fastest thing we can observe, as in the speed of light, how can we observe something five times as fast? Wouldn't that be invisible to us?

    It is closer to what's now called the big bang. But big bump doesn't sound that creative, that biblical doesn't it? And it has no start-story either, let alone any idea of an end, so there you have it: this will not suit the needs of the church. Maybe a priest can help out, it worked with the big bang. ;-)

    Hahaha! Well, I can tell you this: the sheer joy on those faces while telling a silly story or painting five kazillion dots, just for them, makes painting good. That's how I bring it and do it. This time I had an assignment with it, a message about diversity. That's not easy while avoiding cliche's. It's my third work there, so I know the school and several of the kids. They emphasize a lot on creativity there, so there's a lot of inspiration to gather from. The bird is the only thing that came from a book, the figures in the middle are drawings from one class's coathangers (self protraits to identify the right hanger for everyone), the apple is for the name of the school (Oogappel which translates to "apple of my eye") and the part with the tree cut to pieces and rearranged is for the closeness to nature and that "diversity", as I see it, is a damn healthy solution to inbreeding. The colours are layered, so the obligatory rainbow is hidden in the absolut backgrounds and goes from blue to purple to red et cetera. Not the "right order" and that's how I like my world. And which creates a diversity of itself by that. Pretty deep talk for a few days painting. :-) But yes, with a piece of paper, a few spraycans and a good way of telling stories to those little ones made them understand the abstract of what it actually means. We're talking kids the age of four, five years old. That's neat. And that's where you discover it is not a regular school, they do not follow the same curriculum as the normal cityschools. Same things as language, math and the lot, but with a very creative twist. Yeah, even dance and physically doing things is seen as part of a total package, it comes with schooling. Not just mindnumbingly re-reading or repeating for the sake of budgets and seats for the schoolboard.

    Sorry about the long story, it's late and I just got back from some friends. They cooked me a nice dinner. Which is no excuse what-so-ever to babble away, but I do not care. Those colours do a person good. :-) Aaah, the aerosols. Yeah. Hmmm. :-)

    3.5 Days of being disturbed by the same questions, got sand pizza's and sand ice creams served, built a bridge in between sketching, had to explain the workings of a rainbow and one brave young man dared to guess my age right (and ran away, laughing hysterically). Yeah, more of these, please. :-)

    Rainbow Village: Indonesian Government Invests $22,467 To Paint 232 Slum Houses, And Result Is Amazing

    Why go somewhere over the rainbow when you can just hang out inside of it? Kampung Pelangi, a small village in Indonesia, has transformed itself into a stunning display of bright colours and whimsical designs, a huge departure from its former state of squalor.

By the makers of multi award winning horror/crime thriller The Stomach, CLANKER MAN was commissioned by Talkies Community Cinema in association with Short Sighted Cinema for the HERE Film Festival 2017.

    The Superior Human?

    The myth that humans are superior to all other life forms is a fundamental and unquestioned premise of dominant culture. It is an old historical idea, rooted in colonialism, and is deeply embedded in religion and science. It is one of the root causes for the destruction of the natural world, animal cruelty, war, the extinction of species and other immense problems. The Superior Human? challenges this arrogant and self-destructive ideology; unwinds the myths, using examples and common sense.
