At the end, his experiences will be captured in a series of illustrations.
A live exhibition, would be a good description Stokhof’s project. Visitors can watch him illustrate, musicians and writers  will visit him, and will try to create together. Meanwhile, the exhibition is growing by the day. Joost commits himself on Monday July 10th in an empty glass house, and at the end of the  week, the space will be covered with thoughts, observations, and memories, drawn out on paper.  In these illustrations, plants and people, residents and visitors will come together and tell a new story about life in the garden.
