The artist, finding himself in Utrecht as the Dutch football team advances through the World Cup, uses a Dutch-English dictionary to translate some poems written by Gerrit Achterberg. The translations become the source for wandering line animations; the animations are simplified and tattooed on the artist. Completed as part of a residency at the Impakt Foundation, with support from the city of Utrecht and the Mondrian Foundation.
