All That Space Between Us

Video installation, 5 minutes (infinite loop)
Sound by: Mari Kvien Brunvoll

The animation film All that space between us was commissioned for The Rijtven,  a community of people dealing with intellectual and physical challenges, which operates under the auspices of ORO care organisation The Netherlands. It has been shown in a videoloop for one year in a multi-functional Snoezel-Lounge space for the residents and for their families or guests.

The initiative for this lounge cinema came from dutch artists duo Sjaak Langenberg & Rosé de Beer.

A large curtain is revealing the world behind it. A world that consists of layers of memories. Memories of the past or is it yet to come?

This is how the animated film All that space between us that the Dutch artist Simone Hooymans, who lives in Norway, started for the Snoezel cinema. Because the film is projected very large, you can always discover new details in the colorful world.

The music for the film was made by the Norwegian musician Mari Kvien Brunvoll. She plays porcelain. Her singing makes it even more fairy-tale-like.
