16777216.site takes cue from the walls of a marl quarry where people left behind scribbles, tags, love declarations, marks and other traces. In contrast, drawings made in digital environments constantly change; their pixels are ctrl-zed, edited and deleted. In 16777216 pixels behave differently: once a pixel is colored on this online drawing canvas, it is occupied and can never change again. Subsequently, all the 16777216 RGB colors can be drawn once on a single pixel on the 4096x4096 pixel canvas.

Visual identity and exhibition graphics for Substitutes, a show at W139 initiated by Philipp Gufler. The show engages with queer history and discourses around the body, gender, and sexuality, it explores the absence of bodies, the abstraction of the body, and the tools and language we use to maintain or describe our bodies—costuming, staging, masks, layering, clothing. For the Visual identity I made a custom typeface called Elisàr Helvetica. The typeface uses the sticks, flowers and accessories held by the characters in a painting of Elisàr von Kupffer as a costume for its letterforms.

Zine made for Substitutes functioning as a map for the exhibition and to dive deeper into the exhibited works. Made in collaboration with Youngeun Sohn.

Exhibition design, visual identity and book for Copycorner, an exhibition presented at Nieuwe Instituut. The exhibition focuses on the copies existing in the collection of the instituut such as blueprints, white prints, diazotypes, plastic films, xerox copies, faxes, electrostatic prints and many other reproduction techniques. The design for the exhibition uses the Xerox machine as the tool for designing all the elements of the show, resulting in A4 sized labels, tiled poster and banners, and a publication that can be used for copying the architectural drawings.

Exhibition campaign for Reboot an exhibition at Nieuwe Instituut about pioneering digital art. The campaign uses the language of the blue screen for the information of the exhibition, an underlying layer flickering in and out of the screen.

The new identity for Nieuwe Instituut was developed in collaboration with Maureen Mooren, Maud Vervenne, Cengiz Menguc and Vera van der Seyp. The identity takes as a starting point the many voices existing within the institute. In the identity two contrasting languages always exist as one. Using a growing collection of revival typefaces the identity continuously changes in form.

InvisiPaint is a regular drawing tool accept for one catch: it turns dark as soon as its touched, making it so you can’t see what your drawing until hitting the “finished” button.

With ChromaDual two people can collaboratively draw on a shared, virtual canvas that is initially split down the middle by two colors. Each person wields one of the two colors, and can draw on top of the other person’s color. Creations necessitate teamwork as the painters give and take canvas space.

Poster series for Extratool, a residency program where two composers make two music compositions that will be performed live at Extrapool. For each new edition the information announcing the event is overprinted onto the poster of the previous edition.

LPs made for the Extratool residency. In the residency two artists experimented with a collection of instruments made by Yuri Landman. The instruments originate from his research in Harmonics; the amount of waves formed within a snare (for example the first harmonics is one wave, the second harmonics two waves, etc). Similarly the concept of harmonics is used for the layout of the LP, as the number of music compositions made at Extratool grows, the content in the layout is repeated more and more.

Exhibition graphics for The Wall at the End of the Rainbow, an exhibition curated by Natasha Marie Llorens that was presented at the Jan van Eyck Academy. The show presents the work of thirteen artists examining the infrastructures that allow us to see in a certain way and not in other ways.

The names of the artists on this reflective surface, point towards the actual location of their work in the exhibition.
