Micrograph Stories started in Januari 2015, and since it got a lot of media attention.

Last year on 27 November 2015, I was one of the TEDxAmsterdam speakers talking about the theme #BigQuestions. Talking about “How do tears turn into art?” You can see the full talk here.

Just like ideas worth spreading, I believe in tears worth shedding.


During the Lentekabinet festival that took place at Saturday 28th of May I did 2 small performances about Imaginarium of tears were the people could volunteer to be a participant in the “Crying games” The first volunteer to cry from an emotion, basal or reflection tear would be able to see his tear under the microscope with crowd cheering for them.
