A homely environment

In September 2020, after new measures were taken by the Sandberg Institute towards online preferred education in order to contain the pandemic of Corona virus, MC Slotervaart became home to my work studio. This video is the result of 10 months of adaptation to the heavy past of the building suggested by the remaining furnitures scattered in the empty rooms, of sharing communal spaces with the last staff members still standing after the bankruptcy of the hospital, like guardians of a fallen site. The familiarity and comfort acquired in the space made it slowly fade from object of curiosity to a daily practical environment, an atypical and temporary home.
