In 2023, on the façade of a new apartment block in Hoorn at the railroad not far from the train station, my work SOUL will be realised at last. Six light lines will form a frieze on the second floor, depicting the rhythms of daily life.

The frieze is divided in segments of 2 metres each and has a total length of 50 metres, Abstracted figures stand around, stroll, run and drive by, meet each other, turn away, while from time to time a train passes through. The work starts off from the daily rhythms which are stimulated by the urban environment and which organise life in a comprehensible way. But you recognise your friends from afar by the way they move - now that is a rhythm with soul.

The work was commissioned by the municipality of Hoorn. The animations for the work were made in collaboration with Mila Baumann, and Yens & Yens will take care of the realisation.
