In the summer of 2019 I was a beach breeder keeper on a stretch of shore near the Verklikkerstrand in Schouwen-Duiveland. This changed my view of nature there. I always thought that the changes in nature were cycles that kept repeating themselves. Plants dying in the dunes and return after a number of years of eutrophication of the soil. These are visible processes. But I have discovered that these processes are subject of much larger cycles, which are incalculable. We're at the beginning and we don't know where it's going. All those small movements in nature are swallowed up by these larger cycles. Today's observations are quickly obsolete and before you know it, it is history. How we look at it now in the knowledge that it will be totally different in the future. This thought has a great influence on my work.
