Assignment | robot 1.0

Assignment: Create a robot. 

These squetches show how I imagine my robot. It is a sad moody character according to Dutch weather at the moment. The idea is that the figure disappears into the background because it has the same structure as the robot itself. Only if the robot moves, you can recognize a person.

Assignment | book Istanbul Biennale

Assignment: You are given the chance to make a book for all the investors of the Istanbul Biennale. What are you going to present?

This years Istanbul Biennale is especially about the transformations taking place in the city of Istanbul which set a perfect example for the rough outlines of the 21st century world we live in today. Everyone and everything has to please a global market; there is no individuality anymore. Efficiency and prestige are more important than human morals and values.

My "book" contains a silk screen print showing a skyline build up of humans in any form and shape and in any condition; Big and small, thin and thick, coloured or not. The print (originally 98 x 57 cm) is cut into pieces so the receiver can puzzle it together or build his or her own city.

Free Work: Facing the Truth

Assignment | Game

Assignment: Our assignment is to make a game. My idea is to reanimate chess. It is a version where two or more players can play. The goal is not to bring the king to fall but to fulfill an individual goal. You are allowed to play both colours of playing pawns. The following pictures show different models of the game.

The idea is that the chess board is rotating every turn. Here I tried how you can make it easy to remember which side of the board the one player is suppose to play at. 

The sketch shows how I intend to construct the chess board. It should be easy to transport and to rotate without any pawn falling off.

This version is a spontaneously build up board to be able to actually play it to try out the rules. 

Adding goal-cards and appropriate colour to the provisorical version of ches(s)t.
