“My name is Nikodemis
a.k.a. Niek Boer.
I tune this like a genius
coz I create me as I say this:
I write when I feel wrong,
I sing to make me strong.
I paint to make me glad
and I sculpt when I am mad.
Use the raw materials of our circumstance to create the life and world that we envisage
Shaka Senghor, American former convicted murderer, college lecturer, author, director’s fellow of MIT Media Lab
“My teaching’s rather rad –
it makes a sad heart glad.
Kids dig the presentation
my method’s a sensation.
From junk I make them books,
from songs I fashion hooks -
like fish my pupils always smile
as magic with waste I do beguile.
Thus learning equals fun,
brain expansion is a song:
making right what’s been so wrong
In our country’s education for so
long.
“I love junk and hate junk –
it makes art
and breaks my heart
As it tears Earth apart.
Yet from all the dash-it things that be,
best is when tech & nature hits a perfect middle C:
Like machines for waste form energy
and my DIY that creates a synergy
for facilities’ management
or a trowel and some cement:
when I get smart
junk renovations see the light
which dance delightfully bright.
Living in a tent for most of a year
I fashioned a junk cathedral home
from the colorful empties of bottles of beer
birthing rainbows of light
for anyone’s delight. “ © Nikodemis van Rensburg

  • 2. “My name is Nikodemis a.k.a. Niek Boer. I tune this like a genius coz I create me as I say this: I write when I feel wrong, I sing to make me strong. I paint to make me glad and I sculpt when I am mad. Use the raw materials of our circumstance to create the life and world that we envisage Shaka Senghor, American former convicted murderer, college lecturer, author, director’s fellow of MIT Media Lab
  • 3. “My teaching’s rather rad – it makes a sad heart glad. Kids dig the presentation my method’s a sensation. From junk I make them books, from songs I fashion hooks - like fish my pupils always smile as magic with waste I do beguile. Thus learning equals fun, brain expansion is a song: making right what’s been so wrong In our country’s education for so long.
  • 4. “I love junk and hate junk – it makes art and breaks my heart As it tears Earth apart. Yet from all the dash-it things that be, best is when tech & nature hits a perfect middle C: Like machines for waste form energy and my DIY that creates a synergy for facilities’ management or a trowel and some cement: when I get smart junk renovations see the light which dance delightfully bright. Living in a tent for most of a year I fashioned a junk cathedral home from the colorful empties of bottles of beer birthing rainbows of light for anyone’s delight. “ © Nikodemis van Rensburg
