The weekend will finally end with a performative public dinner at Pictura, Dordrecht (NL).

A Scene #11
On Saturday May 12 2018, I walked on the left pavement of the Schiekade, Rotterdam, in a north-westerly direction (Schieweg). At exactly 14.20 (CEST) I arrived at the corner of the Provenierssingel (51.928456, 4.473318). From there I turned to the right and crossed the Schiekade, towards the Roo Valkstraat. As soon as I arrived at the Roo Valkstraat, I turned around and crossed the street again, back to the Provenierssingel. I continued to do this, forward and backward, until 14.40 (CEST). From that moment I continued my walk in a north-westerly direction.
