Installation for the exhibition ‘If Mind Were All There Was’ in the  Kunstverein in Göttingen, Germany. The work is a sort of summary of research we do on the digitalisation of books. A proposal for ‘slow’ scanning, socially and subjectively. A table presents several experiments in how to add ‘gestures’ to a scanning surface.

The exhibition features artists that did an artist-in-residency in Air Berlin Alexanderplatz among whom: ADA, Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan, Maartje Fliervoet, Florian Göttke, Wendelien van Oldenborgh,  Anna Okrasko, Steve Rushton, Martine van Kampen, Stijn Verhoeff , and Katarina Zdjelar.

A selection of our photography as used in the upcoming NOW JAPAN catalogue for Kunsthal KAdE. This series functions as a soft outro in the book. As the book concerns contemporary Japanese art and the notion of ‘superflat’ that artist Haruki Murakami coined to describe Japanese society we thought it a stirring gesture to also add, in the form of this set of holiday pictures, a western gaze that is practically only able to skim the surface of things.

‘Framing Perpetrators - A Proposal’ is a booklet made in honour of Israeli filmmaker Eyal Sivan who was artist in resident at the Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam in the Fall of 2012. 

Eyal Sivan is concerned with the representation of the perpetrator and the project aims to frame the figure of ‘the perpetrator’ beyond geographies, cultures, political regimes, historical events, and faith. We took the notion of a physiologicalblind spot as a visual metaphor to either obscure the perpetrator or the context where he or she is in in a picture. 

A series of different perps is used as a stand-alone visual essay to accompany the interview Suzanne Wallinga had with Eyal Sivan in Paris.

When we were asked to design an invitation for Lost & Found, the prolific ‘night for stray images and sounds’ in Amsterdam we just saw a Samuel van Hoogstraten letterrack in the Dordrechts Museum. We went to see it because of our interest in this type of trompe l’oeil painting, but it struck us  that it would also be perfect to convey the eclectic mix that is a night of Lost & Found. How better to show the varied collection of performances, talks and viewings than with a graphic interpretation of a letterrack? 

We put the pinboard, with several hints at the content of the evening, on the inside of a three-folded letter which was closed by a red sticker in another tribute to the 17th century letter as depicted on the paintings.

As a disclaimer we must add that we used a different painting than Samuel van Hoogstraten’s for the outline of the design. Instead we used a letterrack by Edward Collier, a painter that was influenced by van Hoogstraten and who applied himself exclusively on the painting of these type of letterrack paintings in his later years.

Website for De Stem van West, which translates to something like ‘The Voice of West’, although in English we miss out on the consonance in the title. De Stem van West is a web-radio station for an art in public space project in Utrecht West. It features radio-programmes by artists and makers like Tom Loois, Dirk van Weelden en Barbara Visser. For this project we have developed the name, the identity and this online platform. This website features an advanced audio-player that enables the radio-artist to insert images next in a time-slot related to the audio. Please visit the website at www.destemvanwest.nl. Listen too the winner of the jingle-contest here, to Tom Loois’s commercials and Elsbeth Dijkstra’s trailer for her program ‘Verlichting’.

For the plan to host a big Caspar van Wittel exhibition in Amersfoort in autumn 2015 we made a bidbook. This painter from Amersfoort is practically forgotten as he moved to Italy and made his career there with his landscape, or Vedute, painting. We aimed to emphasise his unique and peculiar pastel/gouache colour use for the picture backgrounds. By turning the orientation of the book we accommodate the dimensions of the painting but also play with the term ‘landscape’ as regarded in page-orientation.

The 19th of November 2012 or our entry in De Grote Rotterdamse Kunstkalender 2012. Hailing from our interest in the question of ‘display’ in general and Edward Collier’s letter racks in particular we are working on several prototypes of notice-boards. Please keep an eye out for any progress on the matter through this website.

The Dots, a magazine for promoting Dutch Design abroad. We focused on the functionality of finding a certain venue. With multiple maps, schedules and cross-references it should make it hard to get lost. In addition we added a visual essay contrasting designer furniture as depicted in original advertising with contemporary pictures on second-hand websites like eBay and Marktplaats.

Routing and lettering for Offspring 2012, the final show of renowned artist post-doc De Ateliers in Amsterdam. The lettering is derived from the idea that we had about De Ateliers as some sort of mashup of a wunderkammer and a doll house. Every letter represents an artist that features in the show.
