Rave Nature is a model for a proposal for a concrete platform in a forest near the quarry of the Factory Enci on the border of Maastricht. The Enci quarry produces cement for The Netherlands and abroad. Near the factory is a forest called ‘Enci-forest’ which is build on the top layer left over material of the factory. They are the main sponsor of the ‘Cement Festival’. The quarry dug off almost the whole hill called the 'Sint Pietersberg'. There are a lot of discussions between organisations who want to preserve the natural area and the factory, who wants to expand their activities.

Rave Nature consists of a light and sound installation on a build platform in the middle of a forest. The public came one night with a bus to the location and were in the dark suddenly confronted with a light show with disco lights and the rave-song ‘Move Your Ass’ by Scooter. There were the trees on/in the stage for 3.51 minutes, after that darkness and the bus went back to town. The film is shot without audience.
