NEWHad a pleasant trip from Texel, via Amsterdam, Den Haag, Leiden, Rotterdam, Renesse, Brugge, Gent and Stonehenge to Brighton.

Use scroll wheel or drag and drop the picture to navigate through 280 cm of urban sketching. Also take a look at the sketchbooks from Denmark to Munich here and to the Lofoten Islands here.

The workshop on the theme of “XYZ” combined aspects of physical installed elements in a dimension of 4 to 6 meters and virtual video-mappings and sought to fuse two- and three-dimensional elements such as flats and spaces.
