From the Vpro broadcaster site: This film will use a radical combination of treated archive, live action and animation to look at mankind’s periodic efforts to alleviate poverty. Focusing on key moments or eras, the film will be constructed around ten chapters and will be an ironic and incisive look back at the story of global inequality. From Biblical times, through the middle ages, colonialism, the great depression, the welfare state and globalisation, this history of poverty will be told with anecdote and humour.
“Eating together, cooking together”, this is the motto on the cover of this great recipes book, called “Buitengewoon Familie Kookboek”, just making some the illustrations gave me an appetite!

Children have rights! This animation illustrates the main articles of the treaty and shows there is more work to do worldwide to give children their deserved rights.
You can watch it here (the animation starts at 1.45 mn in case you’re in a hurry:)
Look forward to showing the exciting result, although it is still under wrap for still a few more months.

De Geuzen, a Foundation for Multi-visual research, is been active in art and social media for 14 years. To celebrate the vibrant variety of their feminist oriented work, a retrospective opens at Stuk Art Centre in Leuven, Belgium. Since Renee’ Turner is 1/3 of De Geuzen and my beloved companion I was happy to contribute to their low-fi catalogue by making a line drawing of every single item exhibited, and that is a lot of drawings!.
Exhibition runs until 6th June 2010.
I am developing a concept for an experiential website based on Charles Darwin and his epic journey aboard the H.M.S Beagle. This online interactive journey highlights key moments from his epic expedition, showing text fragments from Darwin’s diary.
Illustrated like a graphic novel to appeal to students not familiar with his work, the viewer can scroll the Beagle ship along the horizontal time device, travelling through the five years journey following the young Darwin in his exciting adventures . The site has extra features like a multiple answer quiz to test students, animated info-graphics and external links to further content.
One of the most difficult things to do is to be your own client, you never quite hit the target, or so it seems at times…but in rethinking the design and multi-purposes of my site I am happy to say that the resulting flexibilty, ease of use, and possibility to expand its varied content in a structured way feels like an important step in the right direction.
So here it is, in its modular glory, for which I am very grateful to the extremely helpful Ap at Alsjeblaft, from now on it’s all about visualising..;)
