Rob Sweere often uses transformation in his work and his work regularly contains meditative elements. Sweere is best known for his Silent Sky Project. In that project he brings together different groups of people from all over the world and lets them look at the sky together. From that moment he makes a picture. Rob Sweere: “What I want to accentuate, is the authentic experience of the artwork by both the artist and the audience. Art as news. It is about an essential experience of life. Art is a way to evoke that experience, and if possible, it lets the experience touch other people as well. It is like a ritual.
