The Great Escape

Jeroen Offerman

When a man is offered the possibility to change his life-expectations for good, he doesn’t hesitate a moment and seizes the opportunity.

The Great Escape is an homage to the Romantic paintings of Kaspar David Friedrich and sci-fi films like ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ and ‘the Day the Earth Stood Still’ in which extra-terrestrials come to earth to save mankind from its own destruction.

A video-loop, preferably shown as a life-size projection with life-size sound.
