Contemporary art as physical experience 

“The Life of a Jogger” was one of my early self-organized events—a group-performance (2003). It was set up as a real jogging-event, with the one exception that it was an artwork.

All participants wore a cobalt blue T-shirt with, in white text, “I SPORT” on it. Together the joggers jogged 10 kilometers through the streets, the parks, the harbor of Rotterdam, and over the Erasmus Bridge. A blue moving and constantly changing human mass was the visual aspect of the performance.

The booklet “The Face of a Jogger” is a photographic registration of the performance and an ode to the participants.
