Experiments in creating environments with 3D scans of natural and urban elements. Will become part of an installation about a society who has to relearn living in nature after climate change, using 3D scans of urban and natural details.


Dear April

short film (2021-ongoing)

Dear April is an experimental short film set in a dystopian Rotterdam, in a future world that is recovering after a mysterious disaster. It follows a fictional narrative inspired by the reconstruction politics of Rotterdam after the bombing of the Second World War, reimagined in today’s context of constant urban renewal, displacement of socio-economic groups and the development of surveillance technology.


All the feels

short film (2020-ongoing)

All the Feels is a short film which explores how reaction GIFs facilitate performing emotion in online conversations: essentially how we express emotion online by using other people's faces and how this influences our identity.

The plot revolves around an actress who is preparing for an important role. We follow this through various text conversations on her phone. In order to grow emotionally and be able to perform, she has to leave a version of her old self behind and go through a hero’s journey in a fantastical, animated world.
