Dreamyourtopia in Berlin

Just returned from Berlin, where I'll build and destroy the Checkpoint inside a swimmingpool in November!


Back from the Lowlands festival

It was a huge success, so we're tired but satisfied.
On Saturday it would take 3 hours, just to get into the checkpoint......
Above are some pictures.
Obviously camera's used to take pictures would be confiscated.
So not many pictures have been taken inside.

some pictures from outside can be found at


Nederlandse Immigratieformulieren online

Immigratieformulier WXRZYQ SFG 23587-492 A is nu ook verkrijgbaar in het Nederlands als Immigratieformulier WXRZYQ SFG 23587-492 B. Voor diegenen die naar Lowlands gaan en een Droom Paspoort willen bemachtigen is het aan te raden om het desbetreffende formulier vooraf te downloaden en in te vullen via : http://www.dadara.nl/checkpoint/immigration-forms.htm

Het vooraf invullen van het formulier en geregistreerd staan op Lowlands zal de grensprocedures aanzienlijk vergemakkelijken en verkorten en is dus zeer aan te raden.

Going into Hibernation

You can already start preparing yourself by downloading the immigration form from http://www.dadara.nl/checkpoint/immigration-forms.htm , filling it out and mailing it to the Department of Dreamland Security. Dutch forms will be available in the future as well :-)

In the meantime check the "Spacecraft 2 More Fleeting Architecture and Hideouts" , which features the Checkpoint alongside many other cool projects. link

For now I'm concentrating on my Upcoming Guantanamo Brain exhibition at Famous in Amsterdam, starting the 2nd of May.
