Oncowand is a Dutch art installation project, a non-profit initiative developed by Bartho, Peter and Stefan Hengst. Its purpose is to share stories from people that have or previously had the experience of cancer. 

These stories are in the form of one minute long audio recordings. They are anonymous and played in random order by a push of a button. The logo is generated by the audio and underlines the uniqueness of each story while retaining a common visual ground. 

The campaign was made with the scope of creating awareness about the difficulties of dealing with various types of cancer and to collect the required funds for building the first part of the installation.

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 a million unclaimed and unidentified people have been buried since 1869.

The database, known as the Traveling Cloud Museum, collects their stories trough different public initiatives. It is an open platform where people can search for their loved ones, share memories, and trough their stories take the lost ones out of anonymity.

The intro video leads the viewer into the topic, giving a comprehensive mood and message about what the initiative is about.

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. Trough 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 initiative. It also portrays the dynamic, open and diverse nature of the event.

Frames is the name of the album released in 2014 by the Dutch jazz pianist Michiel Borstlap.

The concept was to create a visual playground during his live performance, in which the artist could immerse. Each fragment flows into the next, creating a smooth visual narrative, that engulfs the musical performance.

The slow, constant tempo of the animations builds a dreamy mood and gives room for improvisation.  More than one and a half hours of performance was complemented with the use of this simple visual vocabulary.

Visual Identity

Fabian Maze is a Romanian dj, producer and remixer. 

The task was to create a visual identity adaptable to different social platforms and media that emphasises the artist’s local roots while offering a modern twist. The concept evolved from the Romanian traditional embroideries; the lines mix in multiple ways, creating different patterns that also give a subtle suggestion about the artist’s line of work.  

A dynamic solution that also expands and contracts like fabric in combination with the music.
