Concept & Design

Design is not primarily about the looks of something, it's about how something is built to fulfil a purpose. We use Design to create things that do not only function but can also be loved.

Hansel & Gretel, Armory On Park

iart project documentation

An interactive and immersive video art installation filling an entire ex-military drill hall in Manhattan NY - referring to the topic of 'digital footprints'.

56 infrared cameras recorded the visitors while projectors displayed their secretly filmed silhouettes in real time. Each projector used a small computer to form a self-contained, independent link, but communicated with all the others to form a decentralized, flexible system.
