" […]… suddenly it rained, there was a storm. We decided to use it. We grabbed the Steadycam and we just did it. Then the rain stopped. I think we could do it in two takes. That forced us afterwards to get rain on the street because there was only a dissolve and it was supposed to be three minutes later, but that worked in our favour. This is a very old trick. If you wet all the streets you have twice as much light. It doubles all the reflections. It has been used in old gangster movies of the thirties and forties. in our case it just happened and we where forced to do it."

There's No Ffiti Like Graffiti

Haarlem, Today: "The flapping of a butterfly's wings in Tokyo can cause a tornado in Texas."  In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.

As part of Upcoming Film/Installation/Website "thing", this brass plate, excellently made especially for us by Dutch engraver Paul Hertog, was screwed in the brick wall. The poster was done with my two sons Jesse and Melle. The wooden mirror-frame comes from the awesome Vintage webshop from the Dutch recycling store Vindingrijk. The toy gun was found in a pile of garbage. Colors with spraypaint from Henx.

The Installation wil be accompanied by a wesbsite with a live video and audio stream and webshop. All hosted by -- as is this website -- Zebra Hosting in Amsterdam.

"The history of subway graffiti in New York is a brief one, and the phenomenon differs from all other kinds of graffiti, both past and present. In the 1960's, teenagers in New York began to write their names on neighbourhood walls, but instead of their given names, they chose nicknames, creating a public identity for the street":
