Tegels (Tiles)

The hidden movements and melodies of street tiles. Tiles is an animation made of a large photographic collection of street tiles. By viewing this collection of photographs as a sequence, different movements and processes become visible within the frame of the tiles. Both music and animation are trying to find a balance between a thought-out arrangement and an arrangement of chance

8 Frame Grid

8 Frame Grid is an animation of eight frames that together show one movement. In the course of this animation loop, we see how this grid tries to expand by taking in various types of material. But the organic material is not so easily captured and controlled. A struggle for control emerges and it becomes clear that all the materials go by their own rules.

Tape Generations

Large groups of tape rolls go through a long process of development and degeneration. The extremely slow paced life of these objects is being revealed within an isolated space where everything starts from a symmetric composition. From this orderly state deviations and differences in behaviour slowly become visible through the force of gravity. Resulting in unpredictable shapes and movements that somehow feel familiar.
