Design and code development for the personal website of a painting student at the Universität der Kunst Berlin.

Martina Brodolini needed a clear and reserved virtual repertory of her painting and art works. The design is based around big, almost full-screen images, which force the viewer to explore the works differently by diving into them. The possibility to publish series and smaller pictures also allows to have an overview through a more classical visual presentation.

Various series of continuous experimentations on digital matter often based on analog drawings.

Exploration of materials by diving into them and analyzing them deeper. Examination of the reactions to stretching, blurring, destruction and recomposition.

Elaboration of the new year wishes under the motto “Good mood 2016”.

After the year 2015 we decided to work on a way to bring people closer and to stimulate a nice and positive attitude towards one another. As a studio sending wishes to clients and partners, we focused on work relations and offered an opportunity to spread good mood in the daily office life. We created not only a new year’s card, but also pre-printed post-its that need to be used in order to reveal the printed card. The post-it quotes were clearly intended to be used in the office and shared as positive thoughts. They encourage to reckon the good work of a colleague, share a lunch with another, to send one home after a productive day — to recognize people’s actions and value them.

Various series of continuous experimentations on digital matter based on analog drawings.

I decided to pursue an exploration of analog colors and materials by diving into them and analyzing them deeper. On that purpose, I scanned the elements and examined them with a digital perspective. Stretching the pixels and colors and using disruptive actions led to expressive textures, almost reflections of mood and thoughts.

Elaboration of a polyvalent and challenging editorial object.

As part of my Master’s thesis, I explored madness as a way to suggest alternatives & new perspectives by the use of little slides and gaps. The intention was to wake up the readers and disrupt their expectations.

Stories are usually interpreted visually, but one can question the legitimacy of these representations. Indeed images reveal what the text wants to keep quiet. This tension between said and what remains interpreted led me to imagine a way of inserting images in a book while keeping them outside at the same time.

Attempt to slide factual images, such as photography, into expressive and enigmatic images, in order to foster imagination.

Attempt to switch the our viewpoint from factual to interpretation. The very personal and singular memories of one family on static paper appear distant for an external viewer, but becomes, through manipulation and mistreatment, a shared reminiscence. These ghost images turn into evocations that everybody can interpret, relating to strangers’ stories or echoing their own memories.
