Rip, Read and Distribute
Bookmark/businesscards for Perdu. Perdu is a center for experimental poetry in Amsterdam, accomomodating 3 different practices: the curation of an evening program (de avonden), a bookstore and a pubslishing house. According to these 3 practices I designed a bookmark that at the same time entails 3 businesscards that can be ripped apart.
Verloren gegevens – Lost data
Post Perdu is a monthly mailing by Perdu, podium and bookstore for experimental Dutch poetry. The English translation of Perdu is “Lost”. On every post card I show lost data, found on Google Street view. These flaws of technology are creating new cohesions and new visual narratives. Every months the card is printed on different paper. Amsterdam 2014–2015
Friendship and friendliness
Supporters and regular visitors can purchase a “vriendschap” with Perdu, a friendship, materizalized in a businesscard-sized card from beer coaster material, – substantial, stiff and light.
Books – boeken – Bücher
There is no such thing as an innocent reading
Read-in is a collective of artist, who are investigating the possibilities of collective instant reading sessions in other peoples homes. This workbook, was used for a workshop and collective memorizing session in occasion of the exhibition Made in Commons and Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam in January 2014.
An agreement to disagreement
I wrote and designed ‘An agreement to disagreement – why designers need to design conflict’ in occasion of my graduation and the Sandberg Instituut. The research into the possibilities of an agonistic design practice has been a crucial step to frame and define my own design practice. Amsterdam 2011
