      sanfter stein
      typography and digital media

    • the process of forming a typeface transcends into an unknown rhythm, in which letters no longer serve the lingual purpose but result in an ambiguous state. the etymology behind sedimentation serves as an inspiration for the sculpting process of the letters. each letter is assigned a different mineral, referring to the available texture library in cinema 4d. linking the typeface with the geolocation of certain stone quarries, I reflect upon the virtual presence of materials, especially when they are digitally distributed via certain 3d programs. sanfter stein describes itself as the concretion of material that forms in an organ or duct of a body.

      film and video

    • this world is bound by fluid relationships: connections between interfaces and users, between the natural and the artificial, humans and their alternate being. zwischenraum is a german noun and brings several definitions with itself. it primarily defines the space between words, but can also define the white space in computer science, a distance between two components or interstitial tissue in anatomy. in this case i would like to define zwischenraum as the fluidity between human-non-human relationships. zwischenraum concludes as a virtual realm, documented in the format of a video, in which sequences contain abstract notions from various streams of information, i.e. articles or screenshots.

      perform for me
      film and video

    • can we trigger the internet into exhaustion? this short video brings back certain elements from the browser interface and, like in performance, intends to repeat their movement. i tried to neutralize certain elements in their appearance, in order to abstract the context and their meaning. perform for me gives an condensed impression of a live performed act presented at de fabriek in eindhoven as part of the underexposed underground exhibition.
