Look Up (2014)

The idea for Look Up emerged from different sources of inspiration all growing toward one concept. First there was the spoken word poem Look Up, with a clip that was shared by millions on social media and that talked in a preachy way about this generation and their lack of contact with the 'real world'. At the same time I felt a longing for solitude, glorifying the idea of 'the cabin in the woods'. Dreaming of a little house with a glass roof. The opposition of being alone in a small room and looking up: through the roof, where clouds pass by and stars light up. And suddenly feeling so small again in this big, beautiful world.
