Poster exploring the visual language of pausing.
TRANSCRIBED MEMORY
video installation

Our memories seem only to be as sharp as the images that represent them. As images progressively gain sharpness, they seem to supersede the imagination. What is lost in this effort to preserve? Transcribed Memory revolves around a personal archive of digitized home-video tapes. By repeating the process of digitalization, the images are constantly transcribed by the screen and the camera. The result is an image that is in a way obstructed and recreated into something that shapes its own conditions.

INTERNSHIP REPORT

Report and image archive made up of databases (WhatsApp conversations, prints, e-mails), inherently created during the internship.
EARTH IS FLAT

A revised version of the fountation of the modern Flat Earth Theory, replacing the mainly literary content with Flat Earth Memes found on internet communities. These memes struggle to capture the extensive theories of the Flat Earth Theory in a world of short attention spans.

In collaboration with Sam Reith
RELATIVELY CLOSE

Assuming that an artificial womb will be reality in a near future, the device would most likely have to reside in the hospital under close supervision. This would create a distance between parent and child. RELATIVELY CLOSE explores a possible scenario in how the intimacy and poetry of pregnancy can be maintained.
I WANT A SHITTY COPY:
exploring the potential of the low-resolution image

In a high-resolution world based on definition, hegemony and credibility, the low- resolution can offer an escape from sharpness. Compared to the high-resolution image, the low- resolution does not command to be taken seriously and is far from literal or objective. It is less ‘what it needs to be’ and ‘more what you want it to be.’ This does not mean that the image is discreditable; it just means that the image is more inclusive. Its allowance to be ‘amateur,’ unrefined and accessible puts the control back into the creator’s hands.

285 x 420 mm, courant.
