Kelloggs Storybook

Collaborating with pop-up book engine David Hawcock we created a an ambitious paper craft construction for Kellogg’s first master brand campaign for the UK, showing ‘seed to spoon’ story in reverse. Director Yves Geleyn wanted to create a book with intricate moving parts and characters to create rich worlds springing from the pages from start to finish.

Actimel

Actimel

This visually exciting piece was to showcase all the good things that can be found in Actimel. The art direction was to be exciting, and dynamic to show off the new recipe of Actimel. I had to mixing lots of different textures and colours to highlight every unique ingredient and capture their own personality all brought to life by the photographer Sam Hofman.

Special K - The Box

I art directed this stop frame animation that was released to celebrate Special K’s first recipe change in over 30 years. It was a product of literally spending hours folding paper to try and find new ways paper can animate, combined with traditional origami patterns.  I even got to bring to life and recreate the famous Special K lady with the classic red dress, out of paper. The animation took it’s shape through intricate folds, creases and pleats to symbolize Special K’s transformation.

De Volkskrant - Verboden Boeken (Forbidden books)

Using stop motion and animating up to 80 individual elements of 2mm thick I meticulously brought to life the fitting book titled ‘Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis’ and reversed the act of censorship in an eerie and stand out TV spot for the national dutch newspaper, De Volkskrant.

Translation: De Volkskrant presents (‘the people’s paper presents’) forbidden books. The 20 best books you were not allowed to read. They caused havoc and controversy because they shocked people in a political, religious or erotic sense.  Part 1 by Franz Kafka comes free with tomorrows Volkskrant.

Velvet

This is a stop frame animation made out of paper, toilet paper and tissues. Each layer was lit with different green acetate to create the rich green gradient and each layer was hand cut to create 9 layers of separate animations that were hung and shot for this piece I art directed working closely with director Geoffroy de Crecy. This piece is part of a two part series, all can be found on vimeo along with the making of.

Toyota - Stories of Better

This was a very exciting job with hundreds of replacements and props built to bring this epic stop motion to life. Finding the right papers to make realistic, accurately shaped Toyota cars but keeping that handmade style was the biggest challenge. The piece was to be played as their central brand film for the Paris Motor Show so getting a sleek car feel without being a graphical interpretation was important. Having strong dynamic shapes and colours and with everything shot in camera shows the versatility of the medium to create such a strong piece of of branded content.

Sand Paper

Sand Paper

In a twist to break away from conventional paper I chose to work with a paper more familiar to builders and DIY enthusiasts - sandpaper. Working with photographer Bruno Drummond we brought to life all the textures to make this series of slightly uncomfortable creations. Innocuous everyday objects took on a new sense of menace in the series that balanced a playful sense of humour with a slightly sinister undertone.

3M Globe

3M Globe

As part of the launch to 3M’s “Science Applied to Life” Campaign I was asked to build a paper globe for their experiential tent at SXSW interactive. The tent was to showcase all the amazing and interesting products 3M create and I was to build a globe to interact with their Novac Fluid. Novac fluid looks like water but doesn’t damage anything, with benefits including cooling properties, non conductive properties and extinguishing properties you can place paper in it without it getting wet or damaged unlike with water. So after an exciting set up day of lowering the artwork into a tank and pouring in the liquid around it we showed how this was true. I made a smaller satellite to put next to the model so people visiting the tent could see it wasn’t a trick and the paper wasn’t coated - it was all down to the science of the Novac Fluid.

Heineken - Legendary Poster (The One that made a giant leap for Poster-kind)

Heineken partnered with over 40 renowned individuals from the worlds of sport, entertainment and art to create the Legendary Posters. Each poster began the same but then, travelled the world, met extraordinary people, participated in epic events and lived through amazing experiences, returning as as one-of-a-kind artworks that bear the physical marks of it’s unique journey.

The series of posters were then put online and auctioned to raise money for the Global Non-Profit, reporters without boarders with a final exhibition being held at the world famous Stedlijk Museum, Amsterdam.

My personal poster got taken out into the Stratosphere on a weather balloon. Made just using the poster and my normal glue we were excited to see how it would cope changing atmosphere and going through clouds! Paper again proved it was more robust that it can be given credit for with it surviving right until it’s inevitable crash landing in Germany.

Paper Cuts

Paper Cuts

Paper Cuts is an interactive paper sculpture that invites people to experience the world’s most recognizable instrument of death, head first. However, unlike it’s deadly ancestor, this blade offers nothing more final than a paper cut.

The guillotine became part of popular culture during France’s Reign of Terror (1793-94) and the subsequent French Revolution. While used well into modern times throughout other European countries the last time it was used for official business was in France was 1977.

This experience brings a new twist to this infamous apparatus while arousing people’s natural fascination for the macabre. It will transform a powerful and oppressive symbol of death into a thing of beauty. Delicate, inviting and something people may even line up for. Voluntarily this time.

And every time the paper blade falls a camera will be triggered to capture the expression of the those who have put their neck on the line for an art experience like no other. Each fearful facial expression, forever immortalized on the PaperCuts-Exhibtion.com.

 

This piece is the first collaboration between artists Mandy Smith and Hal Kirkland. What began as a simple creative sit-down in an Amsterdam bar eventually manifested into the 3.8-meter behemoth it is today.

Mandy had always been disturbed by the idea of capital punishment since she was young and had begun to play with the idea of creating a series of deadly devices while juxtaposing them with the fragility and beauty of paper art. Hal suggested creating one at full-size, transforming the piece into a sculpture that allowed paper art – an art form usually too delicate to touch – to become inherently interactive. Both artists unified their craft, interactive skills sets and before long Paper Cuts was born.

Paper Cuts launched at one of Amsterdam’s most historic locations, De Waag on March 1st, following that it appear next at the Pick Me Up - Graphic Arts Festival Design at Somerset House - London, March 5th. Currently it resides at Stadtmuseum Aarau and is on loan from for the exhibition alongside the actual blade from the French Revolution.

ODDKA FROCKTAIL

Vice asked me to produce a dress of odd and imaginative art direction to launch the story of Oddka’s Milkshake vodka. I dreamt up the solution by telling the story of“Oddka Production” through layers of a live animated storyboard. Each layer showcased a different stage of the “Oddka Production” process from strawberry eating cows, to a milking carousel, though to flavour infusing windmills. To bring the dress into a 2m tall, 250 moving part reality I teamed up with production designers Herbert Luciole.

No More Cutting

No More Cutting

‘No More Cutting’ is a project to raise awareness of female genital mutilation.

In some parts of the world stereotypes have created the idea of “normal” and “preferred” female genitalia. Some women choose to cut themselves to fit this distorted image of normality, when in reality normality comes in many shapes and forms. We must encourage women to be proud and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the natural female form and not be pressured to change.

In stark contrast 3 million girls and women are subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM) each year against their will and without proper understanding of what is happening to them. It is an extreme form of discrimination that millions of women and girls have been affected by and 8300 girls a day are at risk of being cut. These women and girls aren’t presented with the choice to remain uncut and be themselves.

This project aims to highlight that human diversity, each unique genital is hand crafted from paper to capture the fragility and beauty of each and everyone.

As this project grows we hope to raise awareness, open discussion and gain more support for the on going ambition to end FGM within a generation. Through new laws being passed, more education and general opinion changing there is hope to make this a reality.

It is an extreme form of discrimination that millions of women and girls have been affected by and 8300 girls a day are at risk of being cut. These women and girls aren’t presented with the choice to remain uncut and be themselves.

This project aims to highlight that human diversity, each unique genital is hand crafted from paper to capture the fragility and beauty of each and everyone.

As this project grows we hope to raise awareness, open discussion and gain more support for the on going ambition to end FGM within a generation. Through new laws being passed, more education and general opinion changing there is hope to make this a reality.

No More Cutting

‘No More Cutting’ is a project to raise awareness of female genital mutilation.

In some parts of the world stereotypes have created the idea of “normal” and “preferred” female genitalia. Some women choose to cut themselves to fit this distorted image of normality, when in reality normality comes in many shapes and forms. We must encourage women to be proud and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the natural female form and not be pressured to change.

Directors Cut for Plan Netherlands & Plan Belgium Online Campaign

I was asked to create an animation using my art project 'No More Cutting' as a way to educate people in The Netherlands and Belgium about Female Genital Mutilation. The devastating practise affects 3 million girls each year. The online campaign was to raise awareness and encourage donations through the dutch and french language versions. 
The films reached over 2 million people in a week.

Starbucks - Toasted Coconut Cold Brew.

Here's a fun animation I created with Starbucks for their barista craft campaign, and yes that is a coconut landing on a trampoline and being propelled through a burning ring of fire! The film was to be played across social media platforms.

'A New Reality' - VR art installation

'A New Reality' - VR art installation

We are potentially approaching a time where some of the most beautiful elements of our planet will no longer exist in the physical world. When anything disappears or becomes extinct the only way to see what once was will be through photos, video documentations or VR simulations and experiences.

This paper art piece plays with that idea of reality. In a mysterious space surrounded by the ash remains of what is left from the paper artwork,  you are invited to enter a virtual reality world. Through this experience we are are able to turn back the time and watch the sculpture come back to life in the room, as the strong geometric sculpture reappear from the flames in a 360 immersive experience. However, when you take the glasses off you will be back in the reality that the sculpture is physically gone for good. The only reality it can stand alive in now is in this virtual plane. 

'A New Reality' is a VR art installation currently on display as part of the exhibit CODA Paper Art until October 29th 2017.
