• Wildsnoeier Olivier Scheffer heeft altijd een schaar in de binnenzak De groenbeheerders van Rotterdam krijgen al een tijdje ongevraagd hulp van wildsnoeier Olivier Scheffer. Op zijn eindeloze wandeltochten door de stad snoeit hij struiken en planten kort waar hij het te weelderig vindt groeien. Van een stevige roker en drinker transformeerde de Rotterdammer zich tot een

  • Ik ben van de zomer bij Motel Spatie in Presikhaaf langs geweest om te snoeien. Na een verkenning door de wijk en een paar uitprobeersels, ontdekte ik hoe de snoei van de treurwilg je van je padje brengt. Het idee om net naast de stoep een poortje te snoeien ontstond door de plek. Of het

  • While traveling around I have the urge to trim plants, especially when they start winking at me 😉 This one is in Eindhoven the night before DDW 2018, thank you streetlights! This was in Bergen (zuid Holland) during the opening of Bewarehouse.

  • Als je in een park een treurwild tegenkomt staat die vaak aan de rand van het water. Als ik een treurwilg tegenkom wil ik hem opvrolijken. Even dat rasta kopje een bobje geven. Ik was in juli in Presikhaaf bij Motel Spatie voor een snoei session 🙂  

  • Heel toevallig kwam ik Emiel van de Velde tegen, of beter, Emiel viel mij in de rede in de Schouw, hij had een woord uit een gesprek opgevangen; wildsnoeien. Hij stuurde freelance journalist Els Neijts op me af en die schreef dit hele leuke stuk over mij. Het staat in de Havenloods van 10 oktober

  • The Park at the Euromast Rotterdam needs an update for a while (says Wim Pijbes). But hey that’s no reason not to do the necessary maintenance. Let me do it for you, Rotterdam. Aside from bad maintenance it is a bit cruel to plant Holly behind a bench on such a nice spot in the

  • I broke my arm a few years ago and it took a while before I got it repaired, I became depressed from waiting for the operation. To save myself from a tiresome depression I asked all my friends on facebook to help me with Vitamine K (Kunst-Art). The response was overwhelming, our house filled up

  • I have a dream! The Reversed Hedge Trimming Project. In the period the museum is closing for renovation I would like to shape one of the hedges to look like the DePot. And you should seriously consider using your hedge for Hedgevertising! (speak out loud when you have a cold)  

  • This is the first of a series of “Cow Lines” (you know like how cows and horses eat the bottom branches of trees). This is a simple straight cow-line.

  • This is the first of a series of Ivy Wall Clip Art. It is a test to see how the hole will grow back, will it be light-green and hollow, will it stay visible for a while… It also tests the resolution of ivy, the DPI or should I say Leaves per Foot, what is

  • Ik had toestemming gekregen van de bovenburen, desalniettemin gingen andere buren zich ermee bemoeien. “Vindt Michele dat wel goed? Ze is erg op haar privacy gesteld” Voor ik klaar was ben ik maar weggelopen, zonder op te ruimen, om geen trammelant te krijgen. Het lijkt bijna een appeltje.

  •  I have walked the walk, in total the journey was 614 km long, the deviation to the north or south was +/- 7km (total 14.4km) total elevation 6573 meter, highest point 633 meter. It took me 19 days, 18 nights, one slept outside all the others in hostel, hotels, and bed & breakfast. The

  • Please sponsor me for my walk on the 51st Latitude from Sittard to Altenburg (see original post) NL73 INGB 0008 0790 00 530 kilometer in 21 dagen (deel dit!) Ik heb in de 100 dagen (!!!) dat ik niet meer rook meer dan 1000 kilometer gelopen, in-en-om Rotterdam. Ik had al in Italië of Polen

  • I am going to walk to the opening of Ipihan#8 on the 51 parallel north (Lat51). I will start on the left bank of the Meuse near Sittard and walk towards the East for 21 days, approximately 25 km/day. I will walk as close to the lat 51 as is practical without making an obsession out

  • When walking in Paris one walks a lot, leaving the apartment, visiting A, B and C, eating, … and eventually getting back home. At the end of the trip one feels exhausted and what I do is check my distances on my phone, in my case it is about 15 km a day. Not that

  • Paris Quatres Ports First a simple side-by-side comparison of Rotterdam and Paris Notice the huge difference in density and notice the two cities similarity in size. Watch what happens when you swap a part of both cities: Finally here is Île Saint-Louis in the Seine in Paris at the same angle and size as the Radio

  • My little spade’s handle broke off, it was made of cheap plastics, so I thought of fixing it to one of my catapult weapon-wood sticks. Then I remembered the idea of Maurice Meewisse to ask a tree to make hammer handles. So I copied the idea and fixed the spade in a hedge (Liguster). Now the

  • Idea for the winter: Walking in Circles and having a gps-track as a visual result. It is like walking like a goat attached to a rope to a pole in a complexly shaped garden but then without a goat, pole, rope or garden.You know in movies when one says: “Secure the Perimeter” or “Establish a

  • A growing collection of sticks that could become useful, mostly Y-shaped as that is the best shape to be catapulted in becoming a weapon. The collection should include weapon-shaped wood and then tool-shaped wood and a section of idiotically shaped wood. That last category is the most likely one to be named art.  

  • After the big tree in our garde got removed I cut a bunch of catapults out of the branches. I gave them away to the kids ta could see the tree from their houses.

  • We found this wal in an exhibition, just above the name of an artist but it was not his work but just a part of the building.  

  • Two carpets wanting to be concrete sidewalks 🙂 (found by Gemma, Judy, Kuin and me)
