Shop window Eye Filmmuseum (Amsterdam)

April 2022

Since the Eye Shop - a shop within the Eye Filmmuseum (Amsterdam) - wants to switch to sustainable, plastic-free products, they asked me and ​Alper Demir (as the designer duo Kaplum) to design a shop window to kick off this development towards a sustainable plastic-free shop. Our whale series, which we developed to draw attention to the problem of plastic pollution, was the perfect fit. We used the shape of the Eye logo to design a colourful and playful environment for them.

Sculpture 'Free play' on the Twickel estate

June 2021

I developed this work together with Alper Demir (as the designer duo Kaplum) for Catwalk: Forces of Nature  van Textiel Festival Twente 2021. It was on display for half a year at the Twickel estate, on the grounds of Museum Farm Wendezoele. 

We transformed the image of the 'Twentse Ros' (Twente stallion) -  a symbol of regional pride and identity - to a monumental work that will change through the seasons and in the end even partially decay. The skeleton will however always remain. Just like the once big and flourishing textile industry of Twente seemingly disappeared. The basis, the skeleton, the knowledge and the history also remained and are ready to be revived.
