As part of my artistic practice I co-founded in 2006 as artist-curator the artists collective Satellietgroep. Since 2014 Satellietgroep explores the Zandmotor as cultural phenomenon.
As a teenager I was fascinated by a photo of a moving rock, published in an edition of National Geographic Magazine (if I remember correctly). And that there was a myth surrounding these rocks. Nobody knew how or why they could move…
So the first time I traveled to the United Stated, I wanted to see this natural phenomenon with my own eyes and ‘Racetrack Valley in Death Valley’ became my destination. However, it proved out of reach for a ‘touristic visit’, so the myth and speculations continued… until recently.
But the seed was planted for my artistic practice, and I am still wondering how we perceive, interpret and represent the world around us.
