With 'Contact', Maarten Inghels connects new poetry, image and performance. His poems appeared as a tattoo ('Honger'), as a survey where he questions the state of society ('Volksbevraging'), and planted in edible seeds ('Wanneer wij zomer zaaien in elkaar'). In the summer of 2016 Inghels made a hike along de Schelde from source to lade to check the flow for irregularities and unevennes. With 'The Invisible Route' he published a map with all the cities cameras and the last route to wander through the city invisibly.
