Nycthemeron shows the course of a rowboat through the canal around Fort Maarsseveen.
In 24 consecutive hours, 24 fragments of the tour were rowed and captured on video.
The edit of all fragments takes 10’24 minutes, which is the time it takes to row around the fortress in one continuous run.
Nycthemeron is a one-screen installation.

Looking without seeing, 2021 video still
A special project on the occasion of the opening of the exhibition ‘everything goes on’ of Frans van Lent in Studio Seine, Rotterdam.
On Saturday, May 15, 2021, I will be walking in a rural area, somewhere in the south-western part of the Netherlands.
Anyone can call me between 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM. I will not answer the phone, but instead, I will take a picture of what I am looking at at the moment. I send this photo to the number (via WhatsApp or Signal) that appeared on my phone.
Note: Make sure your number is visible to the recipient (do not call ‘anonymously’). Also make sure that the phone you are using is capable of receiving image files.
On the occasion of the opening of the exhibition, you can, if desired, later purchase your personal photo as a signed unique print.
3026 GC Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The work L’espace de vingt-quatre heures was the April cover of the Portuguese Umbigo Magazine.
For that occasion I was interviewed by Margarida Oliveira.
The text is also (online) published in Portuguese.

Grotekersbuurt 36, in Dordrecht, the Netherlands (lat: 51.813892, long: 4.66324, alt: 0).
On the door is a poster, showing the exact location, date and time.

A Scene #27: Private, dark mode
On Sunday13 December at 02:00 (UTC+1), for 15 minutes I stood motionless at the window of my living room (51.8137612 N, 4.671336 E), and looked into the nocturnal street. My face to the South, my arms beside my body.
