DaDa-Diner, organised together with Patricia de Ruijter 5th of may 2013. To celebrate freedom of art, in comparison to the Entartete Kunst, in WOII.
The Dada-movement was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of WOI. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition and concentrated its anti-war politics  through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works.

I played with the Splashbox in this absurdistic Dada-Diner. With changed functions, playing with confusion, and tried to mix up automatisms.
We put question marks behind daily automatisms.

Montage of performance at artspace Flipside, Eindhoven. After my artist-in-residence period I organised a festival, Rammelfest 8.nat. This festival was also the premiere of my new and further developed Splashbox.

The result of a research-on-location about water and sound.

The first 7 minutes of my gig @ studio LOOS Den Haag. The next step with the Splashbox, but still - under construction- !!





For my crowdfunding project I used new years eve to get more funders. In order to build my instrument I needed some materials to build the final version of the Splashbox. So I spammed my video around in the online world..

With this video I succeeded in a crowdfunding project to build the final version of my wet soundart instrument; the Splashbox.

First concert with the Splashbox. Splashbox is an auditory and visual performance. This underwater set-up covers a large part of the aural spectrum. Using bare frequencies the water is literally put in motion and made audible by using underwater microphones. During this wet dance Margriet creates a live composition.
