Clip here, tie there was a video installation in the show Don't come if you care, at Het Wilde Weten in 2011. The work consists of a video-loop integrated in an installation whose
compositional elements are based on traditional Japanese design. The video focuses on the Bonsai tree as a for the western world stereotypical image. The attention for the care of the tree is being shown in an amateur way, while during the video the Bonsai turns into a lust object. The video is split into three scenes, every scene showing a different part of the Bonsai process. Choosing the tree, cutting and shaping the tree, cultivating the tree.
