Voice of Korea

From the website "The Voice of Korea" a North Korean government radio website, 5 images were derived into 5 sets of buttons. The button as a symbol of protest in a highly controlled grid of one set image in a society where publicly protesting is, for as far as we know, impossible.

Next to the images that were bound to be in a certain grid (without the grid, th image does not exist, for the seperate buttons did not really depict anything) there was a set of word buttons. Since all there is to say about North Korea from the North-Korean perspective is extremely positive, there were just positive or great words on the buttons. You can form your own combinations with them, but they will always remain positive.

In collaboration with Kai Udema.

About me

Born and raised in the Netherlands, I moved to Helsinki out of love for the north and the Fins. After studying Graphic Design in Arnhem (ArtEZ) and Philosophy in Leiden (University of Leiden) my fields of interest are, well, quite broad, and I enjoy really diving into researching subjects for my work. My studio is located in a forest west of Helsinki and a lot of my inspritation comes from what I see outside both in the forest as in the city.
