RAVE (2018)

The project started with making decoration and light objects for a secret party in the forest. From there I went further with making unexpected objects which could be events on them selves.

FINNEGANS WAKE - JAMES JOYCE (2018)

A redesigned version of one of the most difficult works of fiction written by James Joyce. I included the translations of all the different languages in the book. Hidden themes in the text become more clear this way.

TYPE ABOUT B.NAUMAN (2018)

This book is collection of typographic sketches I made, based on the (video)work of Bruce Nauman. The playful research ended up in a font made with a single chair.

LET'S GO TO THE DANCE (2018)

The video is as an experiment on how dancers would translate only the sound of a language to movement. In the Click Language,…, there are three different click sounds, which all come together in the sentence “Let’s go to the dance.”The language of dance (or body language) is universal language we all understand and can connects us all. To keep the communication personal and true, I asked the dancer to improvise and stay within their own dance-style.

WORKING TIME BECOMES LIVING TIME (2018)

During my research about fluorescent lightning I discovered its connection to productivity and the work environment. Interesting to me is how common it is for offices to decorate their spaces with photography of nature: a wallpaper of a forest; random framed pictures of nature on the wall; maybe even a fake open skyview on the ceiling. Why do so many people have a perfect picture of mountains on their desktop? Considering, spending time outside in the middle of nature does have a relaxing effect on us. Are we trying to enjoy nature wile working? Is getting a glimpse of free time at work a way to escape for a moment. I interpreted the representation of nature at work as a metaphor for the precarious work environment. If you’re done at work and you’re going home, you take your digital devices with you to keep on track. If you’re going to a party, you take your business cards with you because you never know where you going to meet a new client. The question is when are we working and when we are not?

AND SO FORTH... (2018)

And so forth... is an illegible font with its own alphabetic system. Each word becomes an identical symbol and each sentence becomes an identical pattern. Printed on 50 sheets of paper which can be put together as one big puzzle.
