Jacques’ Kaleidoscope is about a man with a vision. The vision of an artist, an intuitive engineer with a love for design, architecture, construction and community. Jacques Overhoff at 85 years of age lectures, designs, conceives and creates architectural sculpture; statues, monuments, bridges and facades. This is a trailer for a future documentary. We are still in the process of making a long version.
