I adore this new work from Debbie Wijskamp. Black Ruby is a series of pots and bowls made from recycled rubberpowder. She developed a new way of working with this material, and created small ‘pebbles’ as ‘buildingblocks’ for this collection. I used this unique series for the exposition ‘Winters Tafelen’ which I made with Studio Aandacht.

A work consisting of two painted or carved panels that are hinged together.
For the third year, COS is supporting ‘Frame’ at Frieze Art Fair, London. Therefore they commissioned a film by animator and Royal College of Art graduate Sarah Beeby, in collaboration with anothermag.com
My friend Kelly Nederlof asked, for her graduation project, seven generation Y members (born between 1980 and 1991) to collect what must not be lost. She investigated how this digitally oriented group of young people are dealing with tangible memories and collecting as a form of practical memory. The shots are beautiful and serves a perfect documentation of a contemporary generation. *I was one of the participants.

I love this project : True Colours : from Lex Pott made of the materials copper, aluminium, brass and steel.
Lex Pott: “When an element like copper is found in nature it has a green colour. Iron has an orange / brown colour when being found inside the earth. Oxidized metal surfaces create colours that provide information about a material. The pallete is a reaction with the base material. Therefore the coloured surfaces have an organic growth of colour and not every colour is possible on every surface. Colouring metals requires accurate recipes. This project shows the results of a research on metals and their true colours; a direct relationship between colour, material and information.” Edition of 20 sets.
Any of numerous plants of the genus Urtica, having toothed leaves, unisexual apetalous flowers, and stinging hairs that cause skin irritation on contact.
The thin protective outer layer of the skin, composed of stratified epithelial tissue. Which provides waterproofing and serves as a barrier to infection.

During my intership at Studio Aandacht I worked on this production for Volkskrant Woonspecial (a livingspecial attached to the newspaper). It was called Touch Me, and we made 4 spreads. On the first image you see the cover of the magazine. The second image is one of the moodboards I made for preparation. On the last image you see one of the end result. For the whole production you can check my website.

A brainstorm for my next photoshoot (filmstill)
Emptiness | Blank | Emotion(less) | Isolation | Solitary | Vulmeranility | Alienate | Distance |Bleak
This is what we are gonna see in a few. Romans, sticky romans. Soft pastels -like coral, red, ochre yellow, blur blue- and light plays an important part. These set-designs inspire me tremendously.
I love the work of Paul Octavious. He is a photographer placed in Chicago. Landscape comprises the visible features of an area of land, including the physical elements of landforms, water bodies such as rivers, lakes and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation, human elements including land uses, buildings and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions.
