PEPIJN ZUIDERVELD - PROJECT HORTUM
What happens if we discover our close surroundings as if we’ve never stepped foot on them?
In Project Hortum (2021) I investigate the different layers of the backyard of my studio by setting up a 1 year lasting self-made scientific mission, in an attempt to fulfill my desire for discovery.
Through samples, photography and determination I learn more about my close surroundings, come to the conclusion that I have to cherish them and that I don’t have to travel far to discover.
Everything comes together in a scientific document that shows the entire process of the mission.
The Project Hortum book is €35, - and is temporarily for sale at the Utrechtse Boekenbar and the HKU Salon shop!
