Spent a few hours setting up our goals and life areas. Eventually we want to migrate our freelance work fully to Kiri while broadening our own creative spaces. I find drawing these diagrams helps promote a different type of thinking, in which the conversation gains a different type of richness and focus.
A series of masks made for a fictional tribe for a fictional ceremony. I am fascinated with Scandinavian folklore and the Norse myths that surround it.I created two deer masks, the first representing life, and the second, death. Life loves death and death loves life, yet they can never be together. I chose deer as they are seen as majestic creatures and play an important and symbolic role within their mythology. The patterns represent the cosmos and are based upon various Norse patterns and symbols.For material I used Poplar multiplex which is light enough for the mask to hang whilst being strong enough for them to withstand wear and tear.
A miniature theatre within a miniature theatre. Rood Noot is a small theater in Utrecht which focuses on multidisciplinary performances, theater traditions, and literature.I visited the theater a few times and grew inspired by the beautiful building and the group of people involved.For one of my courses, I decided to create a miniature theater to be placed within the larger theater. The inhabitance of this theater, the silhouette characters, are aware of their surroundings, but the real, outside world is incomprehensible to them and acts as a blur. I focused on these characters day to day life and created short musical stories with the aim to embed life into lifeless shapes. Each character have their own narration, highlighting their hopes, fears, ambitions and loves.Each room of the building had lived and was full of texture, stories and held a broken beauty.
A virtual reality experience in which a young fox travels through an enchanted forest in search of something forgotten. I often mix different mediums together.Having worked with storybooks before, I wanted to enhance the experience. After much searching I concluded that the ideal method would be to work with the feeling of hand drawn illustrations using the power and immersion of a virtual world.I began by playing with various inks, paints, pens and other art supplies to achieve the effect I wanted. These experiments, although fun,I turned to playing with Procreate, an pixel based art app on the iPad, with the Apple Pencil. It was with these tools that I could draw, paint and mess around more freely than with the traditional equipment. Being a digital artist novice, it took me far longer to get a grasp upon the concept behind digital drawing, but before long I was using different brushes, copying moving and changing things I had drawn and freely playing with the software.
