If Laurel raped Yanny, what are the chances Laurel would go to jail? Who would believe and hear Yanny?

Lightning Bugs At Night (Fireflies) - Flying and Mating!

I saw fireflies yesterday, flying at night, and even while they were mating, so I thought I'd share some of the magic I saw :). 

It has become a tradition now for my friend Joep and I: around the end of June we search for fireflies during a hike in the dark. The specific lightning bug species that lives in my area is the Lampyris Noctiluca; also known as the common glow worm of Europe.

The male fireflies of this species are tiny and can fly, while the females cannot: she's a larviforme, much bigger than the male (with a shinier butt!). Below you can see a GIF from the video of the male and female Lampyris Noctiluca.

After mating, the fireflies die. The ones in this video we found in Sweikhuizen and Beek in the south of the The Netherlands.

Psychonaut: A Spychedelic Editing Experiment

Psychonaut: A Spychedelic Editing Experiment

A psychonaut is a sailor of the soul. Psychonautics refers to a methodology for describing and explaining the subjective effects of altered states of consciousness. In my case, I wanted to visually translate my mind during such a state. The result is Psychonaut.

There’s magic in the world, if you know where to look! Magic in the shape of fireflies. My friend Joep and I found them during our -now- traditional firefly walk. I managed to capture one on camera, with my Iphone 6.

Moving Plates: A Recycle Editing Experiment

Moving Plates: A Recycle Editing Experiment

The universe on a plate. What will you see? Watch this trippy video when high on life or during video meditation. Let's move some plates! This blacklight glow video was inspired by a psychedelic group online I joined recently. As an artist, it’s really interesting for me to read how others perceive the universe, world, and life in general. Especially from a psychedelic or stoner point of view.

Save the Bees: Short Nature Video

They are dying, and we are partially to blame. In this short film I'm giving a shoutout to bees worldwide, who work in our world work for free. When driving through Germany I stumbled upon the beautiful red poppy field you can see in this video. Luckily I had my Canon EOS 5D mark II with me (unfortunately not my tripod, hence the hand-held filming), so I could take some films of what I saw. For some reason the bees that day intrigued me the most, so I made them my main subject.

Magical Bluebell Forest Hallerbos in Belgium: Short Nature Video

Only a few weeks during the year, it’s called the Blue Forest of Belgium. Hallerbos in Halle, near Brussels, turns into a fairytale during the end of april and beginning of may. I paid this magical bluebell forest a visit in the early morning last week. Obviously, I brought my Canon EOS 5DII! I thought it was a good day to practice some filming in nature, since I really wanted to share the beautiful place I visited as well. I can definitely recommend Hallerbos as a trip if you ever visited Belgium!

In this video I did a self-portrait photoshoot with myself in ultraviolet light. UV light, also referred to as blacklight, is one of my favourite genres to work it. Warning- this video is not suitable for people who are sensitive to light flashes or patterns.
