Out of the blue,A cell of space and Cobra attack have been commissioned by the VPRO, a Dutch TV broadcast channel. For two seasons they made a very successful series called 'Nederland van boven' ('The Netherlands from above'). Idea was to show the Dutch infrastructure, nature and living experience filmed out of a helicopter. Geert Rozinga, creator of the series, thought it would be a nice idea to have different people from different backgrounds play with the shot footage. He called me and I started to make 3 very different videos which I presented at Pakhuis de Zwijger, along with a short introduction. The result was a bit anarchistic, at least in the eyes of these television people who are more used to smooth product, but it made some sort of impression. For me as a video art maker the 3 videos contain my way of working, with self produced music, sounds, words and, well, in this case not my own images. So these 3 works differ from my other output, in essence. The project for me as a maker made me aware of the problem when having to deal with other input, as it doesn't presents the one cell of space attitude in my work. It is corrupted in that they infiltrated my personal system with product that had another purpose. It had nothing to do with me. It led me into topics I would otherwise not have used, politics for instance.
