BANN

Website with documentation
Video of performance


Society is on the verge of a lot of change, with the increasing connection we have with technology and the Internet. With the democratization of graphic design, a lot of new “unskilled” people are now suddenly graphic designers. This in terms has turned a lot of design into a meme, “an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture”, with endless similar posters, website, and book designs on websites like Trendlist. A repetitive task that is best suited to machines. But what if, instead of modeling computers after us like Artifical Neural Networks, we model us after computers?
BANN is a design system based on neural networks were humans work together, each on a very specific task, to design whatever they are set up.

BeCon

Vr headset
Phone harness with vibration motors
Website for controls


BeCon is a proposal for a social telepresence platform. A pair of inexpensive wearable devices, connected through a mobile app, allow you to control (or be controlled by) a person from another location against a fee. BeCon invites people to operate in either 'master-' or 'slave' mode to share different perspectives from all over the world.
Becon consists of a "VR" headset and a controller website for the master, a phone harness for the slave and an app for both users.
Made in collaboration with Floris de Vries.

Cycle 13999

Video 9:21


A story of a woman stuck in a dystopian world ruled by computers, where days no longer exist. Only cycles. Cycles of work. One cycle she sees a flash of text saying “You will be the queen of the stars”. It sparks a thought in her head. She tries to get out but as she tries to fight the computers her mind she goes insane.

Maximum Heartbreak

9 track cd/digital ep


My first crowdsourced album. I got on YouNow.com and got people to sing for my heartache. The result is an album full of summer hits, with bangers like TiK ToK and The Shape of You. This one won’t let you down, even if life let you down. Send me an email if you want to buy a CD.

Mobius Limbs

Poster
Silkprint
420x594mm


A project where I designed posters for a fictional band. The band, called Mobius limbs, is a band that mixes Goa Trance and New Wave. The band promotes an anti capitalistic message with a spiritual twist. Most of the concerts are a spontaneous event filled with out of this world experiences. The posters are silk printed in A2 on existing posters

Pirate Jet

Google chrome extension


A flying podcast that will take over your browser at any moment. I designed a chrome extension that overlays a website over your current website and “hijacks” your browser. While you are hijacked the only thing you can do is listen to the podcast. After few minutes the podcast flies away, but it can come back at any moment.

PS Action Club

Symblr is a research into the future of dating and reproduction. It is a pop-up café and a service that invites you to set up a date with an idea. The idea is acted out through a person (a proxy) that gives you the authentic feeling of being on a date with the idea. You can try it out for a trial period or order a 20 or 60 minute date, depending on what you are looking for. For patrons looking to date the idea on a regular basis, we also offer subscription services.

The Complete Encyclopedia of Unfinished Art

Book
Laser printed
106 pages
300x230mm


After browsing the Metropolitian Museum on archive.org I noticed that there were images that had not uploaded properly or were corrupt in any other way. I collected and categorized them and from there created an encyclopedia of unfinished art.

The Modern Decay

Website
Wallpaper strips
1000x1500mm


The Modern Decay is a research into the digital decay of images, more specifically memes. As memes get popular, they get screenshot, filtered, re-uploaded, screenshot again and so on. With every cycle the quality of the image drops a bit, decaying the meme. The quality of the meme can be determined by the state of it. The more decayed the meme is, the danker the meme is.
From this I created a digital wallpaper/screensaver with my desktop that slowly decay's over time. The compression algorithm also creates nice patterns which were used to create a wallpaper.
Special thanks to Tjerk Woudsma for help with the technical side of the project.

The Space Program

Poster
Inkjet
420x594mm


A series of posters created for a fictional Sci-Fi festival in the Netherlands called "The Space Program". I created a fictional galaxy and for each location of the festival I created a planet that had it’s own mass, rotation speed and moon. The moon indicates the date when the festival will be on that "planet". Each poster is a unique snapshot of the rotation of the galaxy.

Untitled (Dada)

Untitled (Dada) is a research into Google]s revers image search. I stumbled up on a glitch where the keyword suggested by google was not related to the image in any way. From that I exploited the glitch to make a tool to create Dadaistic poems.

A picture of a footstep on the moon reminded of my youth when I went out in the morning and stepped in freshly fallen snow. I realised the moon and Iceland were eerily similar in a strange and calming way. Suddenly the moon felt like home. The only thing in between me and my home is the mat on the doorstep.
