paper creatures (2009)

Made during a stay in a hospital that was still located in the center of The Hague. The purpose was to make material that I could transform on the computer later, once home. It never came to that. The paper on which the figures are glued has the size A5, 148 x 210 mm. Soon I will complete the series as I meant to, modify the cutouts, another 10 years project!

first project TU Delft (1991)

Two years TU Delft experience. I actually ignored the exact subjects and I put all my energy into the fun design assignments. Like hand sketching and form theory. But in the end the exact subjects counted for 80% of the propedeuse. And actually I was totally unprepaired about studying things, with books and stuff. But in those two years I think the seed did germinate, and contaminated and went to look at designing in a certain way. My eyes opened and I learned what I wanted to do. Perhaps this, here and now, the unexpected path, which this blog illustrates, that I am walking now. The road to nowhere, fortunate!

illuminated incense burner

A usb led lamp with the possibility to burn incense. The top of the wooden box is a piece of a tile including steel profiles that are used to finish the corners of tiles – eg. in a bathroom. The smoke of incense is something I can look for hours. With the leds on top of the construction it is even more fun while the smoke is illuminated from below.

Finally this project is finished. Took me half a year. In the small space I work there was hardly space to finish it. I became gloomy every time I saw the half finished building materials. Never will work like this again. Space, rather room to work first.

green light for the night

Thanks to LED light bulbs and the little heat they emit it is possible now to create all kinds of lamps that would normally go burn when a regular light bulb has been used. Earlier in the timeline are more examples. But because of this risk factor I will fist think it over before constructing new lamps.

Empty Space Receptacle ESR 3

Emptiness – an empty space, spatially. The question is whether something swims through it is an entity or nothing. If not, the space is still empty and am I a fool, creating things that are nothing and the space remains empty.
