”Mise-en-place”. Lately I’m hooked to Chef’s Table (Netflix). Although I’m a terrible cook myself (my signature dish is fish fingers with broccoli), I was very inspired by the chefs who look a bit at their ingredients the way I look at plastic soup. So I decided to cook with my beachfinds and I think I deserve a Michelin-star. From left to right: ”Three shells steamed in caramelized hay”; ”Desert of sweetened oister and frozen egg topped with crispy cream”; ”Sea urchin on a bed of homegrown salad and three carrot-mushrooms” and ”Calfs thigh leaning on seafoam accompanied by fermented baby-corn”. Have a nice dinner! And oh, take home message: when we keep on polluting the oceans like we do now, we’ll soon eat plastic soup for real. For real!

NATURAL FASHION

Crab Lady. Sometimes all you need are crab-legs & vintage pictures. Although…it wasn’t that easy. The crab-legs scared the hell out of me. I had the feeling they’d become alive any moment

Unnamed

Unnamed. The feathers are found at a little harbour in Lauwersoog (northcoast of Friesland, Netherlands). They belonged to a fishing net.

TRIBAL FASHION

I’m intruiged by isolated, threatened tribes and by different cultures, and how they interrelate and mix. I’m also intruiged by the effect of adding beachtrash to decent vintage women’s faces. It just feels awesome to have the power to change their appearance totally. This series is to honour interracial relations and tribes that still connect to nature, while we’re living in a pile of plastic garbage.

And this one: Feta Tetris. To be earnest: I didn’t find the feta-cheese, the knife and the cutting board at the beach, but well, let’s call it the freedom of an artist
