"In 2001 I spontaneously started preparing an animation film dedicated to “Kom op Tegen Kanker”. I never sent it anywhere because I didn’t know where I could send it to, because I suddenly thought that this organisation wasn’t really waiting for this kind of support. So I stopped the final processing.

As a starting point, I had used a drawing that I made a couple of years before, in 1994, at the Belgian seaside. The basis is a castle-villa, drawn from the beach. Three large staircases lead towards it, clouds are driven behind it. In one way or another this inspired me to have two flying figures evolving in front of and next to this house. With thin sound in the background.

For me this house represents a feeling of happiness which is difficult to reach, but which has the potential to fulfill a promise in all its variations and possibilities."
