oranova: night market

if you can’t face the beasts, don’t go into the forest

Oranova Nachtmarket got selected for realization by the Dutch Film Fund / SCI (Immerse/Interact). As director / art director I’m working with a team of top tier animators, producers, composers, developers, voice actors etc to create this immersive experience. It’s gonna be experimental, transformative, and more than a little tittilating. Will update when I can share some more imagery!

oranova: VR

Pink Elephants on Parade (in VR)

My work wife Jantiene de Kroon & me got selected by the Filmfonds & the SCI (Immerse/Interact) to create a VR-demo for our project-in-progress ‘Oranova’. So I’ve been experimenting with VR, especially with Tilt Brush.

Project XX

I was selected to participate in the Sandberg@Mediapark Masterclass, a collab between Sandberg Instituut (the postgraduate programme of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam) and the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid.

In the course of half a year, multi-disciplinary artists work on a pilot or demo around a specific theme, in this case ‘Technology as Religion’. Me and my creative partner Hasna el Maroudi developed a project dealing with the Google search engine bias (relating to gender & race).

sweet & cold

My evil twin made a comic book.

“A young boy meets a mysterious woman on the beach. Who is she? What does she want from him? In 66 bone-chilling pages, Beeblebrox gives you the answer. This revenge horror – full of ink-black humour – is not for the faint of heart, but those who dare will surely enjoy this tale that echoes the best work of Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker.”

Read some of the reviews here. Also, Hedwig van Driel wrote a great piece about female rage for Vileine’s ‘Instant Classics‘ (in Dutch).

one woman, 6 moods

I participated in an international exhibition around Women’s Day, called ‘Une femme, six humeurs’. Artists from all over the world were invited to choose a woman from their community and depict her expressing six different moods: joy, anguish, anger, disgust, sadness and surprise.

It’s a traveling exhibition, and currently on display in Bujumbura (Burundi)!

valse blikken

Op uitnodiging van de fantastische tekenaar Paul van der Steen nam ik deel aan de groep(-)sex(-)positie ‘Valse Blikken’.

Ik tekende een serie BDSM-beesten, o.a. geïnspireerd door de BDSM-roman Histoire d’O van Anne Desclos.

Ook mijn ‘Shmooppuku’ was te zien, en stond prominent op de flyer.
