A Dutch art installation project, Oncowand is a non-profit initiative by Bartho, Peter and Stefan Hengst. Its purpose is to share personal stories from people affected by cancer and how they managed to overcome it.
These stories are in the form of one minute long audio recordings. They are anonymous and played in random order.
The scope of developing the visuals was to use them initially as part of a crowdfunding campaign. It presented several difficulties: the audio recordings were the only assets and the physical installation did not have a concrete form at that moment. Therefore, the solution was to create a generative illustration from the audio and derive the visual representation of the installation from its name. The illustrations underline the uniqueness of each story while aiming to have a unified visual solution in relation to the topic.
The crowdfunding campaign successfully raised the necessary amount.
The Hart Island Project is an NGO founded by New York artist Melinda Hunt, concerned with providing information and public access to the cemetery in New York City, where over one million unclaimed and unidentified people have been buried since 1869.
The database, known as the Traveling Cloud Museum, collects their stories through different public initiatives.
It is an open platform where people can search for their loved ones and share memories, taking the lost ones out of anonymity.
The video was originally edited when the website was launched, in order to inform the viewer about Hart Island, while offering a comprehensive mood and context for the platform itself.
Utrecht Down Under, an initiative by Kunstliefde, is a platform focused on Utrecht-based artists, organising art exhibitions in unique city locations.
The exhibition Under Control featured 36 artists that presented their work inside the former prison Wolvenplein.
Through this event, the institution gave access inside for the first time to the general public.
The trailer for the exhibition has an artistic approach, making a reference in an abstract and playful way to the venue and the purpose of the event, while suggesting the open and diverse nature of its cultural activities.
Frames is the name of the album released in 2014 by the Dutch jazz pianist Michiel Borstlap.
The idea was to create a visual playground during his live performance, into which the artist could immerse.
The video projection offered a singular indirect light source for the stage. Each video chapter flows into the next, creating a smooth visual narrative that complements the musical performance. The slow, constant tempo of the animations builds a dreamy mood and gives room for musical improvisation.
More than one and a half hours of live performance was complemented with the use of this simple visual vocabulary.
Fabian Maze is a Romanian DJ, producer and remixer.
The task was to create for him a visual identity adaptable to different social platforms and media applications.
The concept evolved from Romanian traditional embroideries; the lines mix in multiple arrangements, creating different patterns that also offer a suggestive visual solution for the artist's profession.
The result is a dynamic logo that expands and contracts like fabric in combination with the music.
