Kraaienest Blijft (2022) | Film | 5:00 min.
Through photogrammetric imagery, 'Kraaienest Blijft' explores the structures of a seemingly abandoned Grand Café in the Dutch city of Groningen. The piece assembles shattered interiors of – at first sight – unused spaces. Fragments of a conversation with former homeless students reveal that the property is actually far from vacant, and show that there is an alternative.

‘So Settler, Are You a Pioneer?’ captures the structures of a rapidly changing peripheral neighbourhood: material remains of an obsolete infrastructure, luxury apartments, and piles of bricks that once used to house people. The work re-assembles and digitally preserves sites that are often overlooked in tales of linear progress. The piece is a journey through distorted urban landscapes, an assemblage of partial perspectives. By adapting the cartographic technique of photogrammetry, Wouter aims to question the authorities who decide what is and what is not in focus.

I Am (N)ever Lost (2018) | Film | 10:00 min.
When confronted with the incomprehensible, we tend to make maps. We place and order things in a way that it becomes readable. But what if the map itself becomes incomprehensible? I Am (N)ever Lost examines our position towards geographical information systems (GIS). It is a journey through the patchwork of images that is presented to us as an accurate reflection of reality. Allow me to know your location and I will lead you home.
