Mankind, animal and material all have a soul in the endless life cycle and keep each other moving. The main inspiration for Ketelgeesten(‘kettle spirits’) is the animistic mythology of the Eskimos.
Mostly there isn’t a clear storyline with a beginning and an end. I work from day to day without a fixed plan or script. One thing comes from another. Working with animation gives me the opportunity to place my own music and sound. For the first two, ‘Ketelgeesten’ and ‘Lichtrovers’, I made the sounds and music myself. The third, ‘de Zee’, was edited for the music piece ‘de Zee’ by Jan Boerman, given by the radio station Radio4 who used the animation for their website.
The three stories were put together as one animation under the name ‘Ketelgeesten’.
