PIXELBETH

WHEN WE TYPE, WE SEE BLACK LETTERS ON OUR SCREEN. I BLEW UP THESE LETTERS TIMES 400%. THE RESULTS ARE AMAZING, INSTEAD OF BEING COMPLETELY BLACK, THEY ARE BUILT UP FROM TINY COLORED PIXELS. I TRANSLATED THESE PIXELS IN CLAY AGAIN AND CREATED A DIGITAL ANALOGUE TYPEFACE. SO WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT ALWAYS WHAT YOU GET…

EP

FATA ‘EL MOUSTACHE’ MORGANA IS AMSTERDAM’S BEST BAND AND THEY ASKED ME TO PROVIDE THEM WITH SOME ALBUM ART FOR THEIR SECOND EP. WITH TITLES LIKE NEON RAINBOW, DISCOLIGHT AND MA COPINE ELECTRIQUE, IT WASN’T HARD FOR ME TO COME UP WITH THE IDEA OF A NEON MADE OUT OF DRINKING STRAWS.

‘META THESAURUS’

META THESAURUS IS A SYSTEMATICALLY ORDERED WORK OF REFERENCE OR GRAPHIC DNA. I CREATED A DATABASE OF FIVE HUMAN CHARACTERISTICS: ANALYTICAL, FORGETFUL, LOYAL, RELIABLE AND SENSITIVE. WITH THESE CHARACTERISTICS, 325 DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS CAN BE MADE. I GAVE EACH QUALITY ITS OWN COLOUR, SHAPE AND CODE AND ILLUSTRATED THE COMINATIONS WITH A SCANNER. IN THIS WAY 325 DYNAMIC IMAGES WERE CREATED , WITH DEPTH AND TIME AS ADDITIONAL DIMENSIONS.
