Meditations On a Black Circle (Surfaces and Objects)Sculpture, tin, bitumen, 2017With a black circle as starting point the group of black forms reveils a process of transformation. The first circle (surface) has been duplicated and then bended, making a new spatial (object). Next, this shape's flat outline when viewed from above, is reproduced into a new flat surface. From here, the same process is repeated until the last shape has become too small to reproduce.

GDA Graduation Catalogue 2016—2017Offset on red paper, 290 pages. With Maartje Trimpe Burger.This small, red catalogue covers each student's graduation project, thesis design, and practical assignment. As a way of making a collective gesture with all of 2018's characteristic individuals, a photographic experiment was introduced under the name of Delay. The idea of Delay was to have one graduate take a photo of a place related to his/her graduation process. Next, a different student takes that printed photo and combines it in his/her new photo. This would go on until all were represented. The spontaneous process of Delay decided the order of the represented students by functioning as table of contents.
Second ReadingIdentity for the graduation exhibition of the Design, Writing and Curating Masters (Design Academy Eindhoven,) hosted by the Van Abbenmuseum. With Studio Jeremy Jansen.

In that way, all graphical elements that were present in the exhibition space could be related back to the hand-out.

Intersections of Value: Notions On Neutrality, Use, and AimlessnessGraduation thesis on the effects of (and critique on) a highly economically progressive and functionality oriented capitalist society, and how the idea of aimlessness could function as potential anti-dote. To contextualise the meaning and potential of aimlessness, sub-themes like value, use, boredom, efficiency, opinions and neutrality are dealt with through examples of contemporary art.

The Absence of SoundHandmade book, 52 pages, riso-printed in 9 colours, selected by the student jury of De Best Verzorgde Boeken 2016. The book, published in 23 editions, shows the possibilities of an abstract typeface oriented around emphasising negative spaces. The title suggests an analogy between sound and form, as both derive from a duality: sound & silence, form & void. The book is divided in 4 chapters: chapter one explains the way the forms are constructed, chapter 2 shows the ways in which the forms lead to patterns, the third chapter elaborates on layering the shapes, while chapter 4 shows variaties on more irregular patterns.
