Inventor of useless things

  • Art

While working on attempt#3 for the KAAP festival exhibition I was asked to participate in a short documentary about how I work. We decided to focus on the process of inventing and took my “borstcrawlmachine” as an example.

The documentary was part of an education program for kids aged 10-12. After the documentary they were asked to invent their own useless inventions and they were presented at the exhibition. It was very interesting to see what they came up with. Children aren’t afraid of a blank canvas and many of their inventions were really creative.

Big thanks to filmmaker Mirjam Marks and cameraman Martijn van Beenen.
