The images shown in the news are not always what we think they are - framing really does a lot to the perception of an image. With this notion I scraped about a week of news images from, filtering them into seperate categories. From these categories four posters were made: explosions, men in suits, crowds and military forses. With the "Breaking News" banner You can then create your own Breaking News - Live.

For Extrapool's Little Shop, I designed the logo and redecorated the shop. The shop is based in NIjmegen, The Netherlands and is filled with stencilprinted matter, printed at Knust and music bought from artists that performed in Extrapool or that is recorded and produced in Extrapool by various artists.

Institutional Camping pt. II: What happens when you have a limited amount of physical living space? How will you occupy that space and how does this then influence your use of digital space? To answer this question, a rectangular tent was set up in the "Transition Exhibition", where people could then experience a very small space and talk about the perception and usage of that space.

Five posters plus one poster combining the five; all the names and words are random outcomes of google searches that provided for the information asked for in the instructions that I was given. The posters contain the exact information asked for in the instructions. The instructions seemed random, which was then the starting point for the five posters.

A photographic research about how my sister and I are very much alike but also differ a lot. We dressed up as ourselfs and eachother and I took pictures of this.

De Zussen (2014)


I took the series of photos over a timespan of several weeks visiting my dad and talking to him. I wanted to get closer to him, to get to know him, but in the end we usually talk about plants, about the weather maybe, but hardly ever do we speak of what really matters: our shared past, his life, my life. I would almost call our relationship superficial, which it is not. This is the way we communicate, and the pictures I took symbolize this relationship. They show what we talk about, they show that I cannot get closer to my father in a very direct way, but we have a mutual understanding of things when speaking of mutual interest. By showing an excessive amount of what we do talk about, what really is missing, is what we don't talk about.

I came to find that all the houses in Enschede that I lived in (I moved about 5 times) were either removed or destroyed. Visiting these places, I took pictures and combined those with pictures of the houses that I do still have. This is all there is left of the houses that I grew up in. ("Thuis zonder Thuis" means "Home without a Home")

One week of camping in the entrance hall of ArtEZ in a small tent. People were invited in for Shelter Sessions, tea and fruits and a talk. The goal of the project was to find out more about how space influences social interaction. With a printer and laptop the promotional material was designed and printed inside the tent.

A film poster for the movie "Rope" (1948) by Alfred Hitchcock. The film focusses on events centered about one chest in the middle of a room where the shole movie takes place. This chest has several "appearances" in the film. Therefore this poster contains a wide variation of appearances of a chest.
