From the series “The Architecture of the homeless people”
Antwerp, Belgium, March 2012
“Shelter 68” was set up during the winter 2011-2012 in collaboratian with the city of Antwerp en CAW De Terp. “68” stands for housenumber 68, Slachthuislaan, Antwerp.
The nighshelter was open for all EU-citizens and people with precarious status.
During the same period an ‘outreach’-team could be called when people were forced to spend the night outside.
This wintertime-project ended at April 1st 2012 and was the first of his kind in Antwerp.

writing down titels of songs or parts I sang and which kept going around in my head longer than a day.
The songs are strong related to mood, weather, past-related emotions or philosophical thoughts. In a way they are part of a stream of consciousness and they tell about what keeps us busy inside. The repetitive movement of the walking, the silence of nature and the fact of being alone with less distraction, intensifies this proces.
