Opening Bobbing Forest

On Wednesday, March 16, ‘The Bobbing Forest’ was officially launched and we are really really proud. On National Tree’Splashing’Day twenty Dutch Elms were lowered into the water of the Rijnhaven in Rotterdam.
The sun going down and the choir of the Rotterdam highschool for Music and Dance singing made the moment an unforgettable happening and was enjoyed by the many invited guests and (inter)national press.
We can’t wait to see the elms in full leaf so everybody can enjoy this new piece of green in the harbor of Rotterdam.

    Some inside information at Schiphol Airport

    March turned out to be a very productive month because we produced another beautiful piece of art. Since March 8th visitors can enjoy a piece of art in The Fashion Gallery in Departure Hall 2 at Schiphol Airport which is made by motion designer Eline Wieland

    A pillar in the middle of this multi-branded high fashion store, covered with flexible LED-screens, also covers part of the adjoining ceiling. Images of Dutch skies, blossoming cherry trees, the world’s highest towers, fluttering hummingbirds and imposing mountain ranges take visitors on a trip around the world.

    Do visit this special eye-catching head-turner during your next intercontinental flight; you won’t regret it!

    The interview with art director Jeroen Everaert and motion designer Eline Wieland will give you more insight into this very special project.

      Hundreds and thousands of little stones

      The past few weeks have been extremely busy for the Zoetermeer based Italian family-run business Zuliani. Hundreds of thousands of mosaic stones have been hand-placed by numbers in special mats. These mats will be used to assemble the 450m2 mosaic ceiling of the work of art ‘Amsterdam Oersoep’ in the Beurspassage in Amsterdam. Jeroen Everaert of Mothership has kept a close eye on the progress of the mosaic. The first stone of the mosaic ceiling of this biggest work of Art in the Netherlands is soon to be hand-placed. Apart from the mosaic ceiling the terazzo floors of ‘Amsterdam Oersoep’ are also made by these Italian masters.
