Inside I'm playing a blues song and showing the pop-up book I made showing the emotion visual way. Here's what was is 'A view on color' some time ago! While my girlfriend austerely turns the pages of a narrative pop-up book illustrating their demise, this rural romantic sits playing a folk song on an acoustic guitar, drowning his sorrows away following his lover's unfaithful ways. Live and unplugged, folkloric and poetic.” Laurens Manders.

Marinke Van Zandwijk presented Airbubles - glass in its most natural blown form, on simple, everyday apple crates. - in the Designhuis Talent exhibition at the Spazio Rosanna Orlandi. “A base of apple crates, once widely used in apple transport, now lacking any real function due to industrial progress. Pure bubbles, without deformation, all of them different. The various centers of gravity in the bubble determine their position. The direction in which the opening points. The basis of my work lies in the way in which people relate to each other and to everything around them. It is not about big global issues; it remains very personal. I carry out my work myself, reason why the making process is a rather organic process. A process in which I allow the glass, which often is the subject, to expand into an individual sculpture. The glass has to be in an environment in which it belongs. In this way, it also becomes the environment for my ideas and thoughts.” Marinke Van Zandwijk.
