a speculative study of an abstract mass
How to generate a new narrative coming from materials observed from a curated location. “We have created a display showcasing each individual element, hoping to illustrate the technology of this species. This could help us to see rudimentary materials in a different light, adjusting them to our technology somehow. This field study is changing the way we build and approach materials, bringing us to a new era. This study is a speculative study of an abstract mass.”
In collaboration with Maryse Poels, Candela Gonzalez and Juliette Keyser

the white box
Redesign of the second issue of Aspen magazine, The white box. The concept of the book design is based on it's name. The white background makes the imagery in the book flow and take the lead for the text to follow. We wanted to create a poetic family album feel.

Me and my close friend Doga, communicateon a daily basis. We communicate offline and online. But the unusual part is that our personal stuff mostly is communicated trough the online world, personally for me I feel more comfortable there. I know Doga feels that too. How can this comfort become permanent?
A snippet of an ephemeral performance in which you could only read the full text by visiting it for 7 days in a row. Each window shared a sentence from the story every evening. A story based on social distancing and the need to be seen. If you would walk by from monday until sunday, the story would be completely shared with you.
