A VR experience built for Oculus Rift. An imaginary trip around five worlds, transporting the viewer to the guts of one of the singles from “Disconnect”, the latest work by the Catalan producer Undo.
Some freestyle artworks to keep my eyes from the screen for a bit and at he same time concepting for U-ARE…
U ARE FIELDTEST
After 3 months of extensive testing we’re now selecting the most usefull spots, and creating and gathering content. There are a number of walls added to the ‘spots’. Barcelona has been built on and with rubble from previous versions of the city, dating back to early Roman times. This makes that the old city centre is a collage of different building styles and many walls are built from the debris. These make great markers to be recognized by the U ARE app! We’re able to create urban art, street art without ‘damaging the built cultural heritage’;
‘Non Destructive Urban Interventions’
It seems quiet, but there’s some crazy stuff being built right now and about to be released to the world! ‘U ARE’ is one of three PHONK / KEIMOTION pilotprojects. We’re developing an app with which Urban Art can be experienced in ‘Augmented Reality’. We’re now in beta-phase and creating content. The app will be released spring 2017 on IOS and Android.

Afterall I studied sculpture, but went digital pretty soon after. Now finally both worlds come a bit closer through digital sculpting which feels as natural as it gets. So I went back to basics and started doing some anatomy studies…
This idea is inspired by ‘Picasso et la Dance’ a dance performance by ‘Ballets Russe’ with costumes and decors designed by Pablo Picasso, and also inspired by ‘objets trouvé’, an idea first utilized also by Picasso, and later ‘perfected’ by Marcel Duchamp.
Some printwork for the wedding of the year. Some dandelion-inspired forms which i’d love to animate. And I probably will at some stage. I love small type.
The first time I got to play with the Canon 5D from Redrum Bureau. Me and Spop created some decors and started shooting some stockfootage during a day. Pouring honey over tangles steelwire, throwing cherry-tomatoes in water, and ending the day messy with ink, kitchenpaper and more stainy stuff…
In artschool I used to weld all kinds of scrapmetal together into something totally unpractical. Nowadays I download 3D models from the internet and weld pieces of it into something new…
