My name is Douwe Dijkstra, I am a visual artist and filmmaker.
As an individual artist I mostly participate in projects that are experimental in nature, ranging from music videos and short films to video installations. Now and then I show work in museums/galleries. Sometimes I do commissioned works.
Together with Jules van Hulst and Coen Huisman I founded 33⅓ Collective. As a group of visual artists we try to expand our individual areas of work. Exploring the use of multimedia environments, projections and performances to tell our stories. Among the collective’s projects is Bluebeard, a video mapping opera that travelled to Rotterdam, Glasgow, New York and Paris.
In 2006 I helped start Festina Lente Collective. A creative Amsterdam based network/agency. In addition to several commissioned projects, I worked with them on a music video for the song Beguine by the Dutch band The Kift.
