SKETCHBOOK COLLECTION VOL. 02

+

a collection of some of my drawings from my sketchbooks from february to september 2017 and it contains more than a hundred of my drawings.

 

i was living in rotterdam for most of the time, where i discovered a lot about myself and what i like to do in life. because my sketchbook follows me wherever i go, although indirectly, it reflects my life and how i feel at the time of each drawing. it's therefore been very rewarding putting this book together, to make new connections and see the stories appear between the drawings.

 

this is a limited release of only a 100 books, each book is signed by me. there's also a version available with an original drawing on the first page of the book, limited to 20 copies. first come, first served.

I ASK YOU TO BE MORE BOLD

+

both a book and a website, each media is meant to complete the other.

when you go through old library books, none of them usually seem very inviting, or when you’re going through old books in a secondhand shop, they usually look dull and boring, yet you get a feeling there’s so much knowledge to be discovered, that it is hidden away and notvery accessible to outsiders. however, once you dive intoa book like this, it turns out to be a well of information and knowledge, that most of the time has just been sitting on a shelf for decades.

DARK MATTER ZINE

+

DARK MATTER is a screen printed zine in one color. printed by hand in an edition of 8, it is comprised of digital and analog images, combined to show what DARK MATTER is to me — black, gritty and distorted imagery, meant to give the reader a sense of what DARK MATTER is, by showcasing both abstract and figurative images, edited to show that the world isn’t always as we perceive

+

GOOGLE LOCATION HISTORY

+

visualizing your location history collected by google in an abstract camouflage pattern. the pattern can be applied to different objects, to hide (at least metaphorically) from BIG-BROTHER and the constant surveilance we undergo.

the data used in this project comes from the location history from my phone which has been collected during the last 8 months

 

applying the pattern on the device that gave me data in the first place, my phone, or at least on a phone case, The idea is that the case then acts as a faraday cage, a device that blocks electromagnetic signals. That means you can choose to hide from any sort of online tracking whenever your phone is in this case. you hide with your private data, so to speak.

ATOMIC MAN is a about creating and exploring a fictional world.
