In december 2006 I was invited by my dvd label lowave to do a 12 channel projection at the 11 space in Amsterdam. 11 serves as the café for the stedelijk museum in the daytime, and as bar/club/restaurant in the evening, with an amazing view over the city. I showed Nearuki (sleepwalkers), a series of slowmotion videoes of people crossing a street (one of the sequences is also in Night for Day). It was interesting to see how the slow movements interacted with the busy indoor space, and how it reflected onto the city outside.
