Artist, Joost Conijn built a car that runs on wood,using wood as fuel instead of petrol. In order to keep the motor running, Conijn travels through woods, independent of petrol, leaving cultivated roads behind. Crossing little villages, people guide him to local saw-mills and offer him some food and spare wood. Wood Car stems from Conijn's desire to move and transport himself independently, towards alternative ways of life just outside the accommodated environment, open-mindedly questioning cultural presumptions.

Other projects include a self-made "Airplane" and a non-judgemental documentary, "Siddieqa, Firdaus, Abdallah, Soelayman, Moestafa, Hawwa en Dzoel-kifl", about a group of self-governing, anarchic children living in Holland.
