My model of an imaginary, old-school-bulky, analog synthesizer — now spinning for eternity.

“Braingum” is a newly-founded brand, producing a fictional brain-enhancing chewing gum, with a target customer base of creative thinkers, artists & programmers. For this fictional brand, I’ve created the visual concept, the 2D logo & 3D models, rendered the advertisement video and eventually edited it — all within a production time of one week.

Rendering of an imaginary, old-school-bulky, analog synthesizer.

Without any doubt, Jean Tinguely’s attempt of bringing several Malevich-inspired paintings with his “metamechanics” series to live, has been a clear inspiration for me since the very moment I saw his work at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. Therefore consider this work, as a kind-of-homage to his “Do-it-yourself-sculpture” (1961).

Sound-design work for three promotional videos of The Hague's Border Session Festival 2017, a yearly technology conference and a year-round lab aimed to kick-start and fuel challenging ideas, experiments and endeavours. The videos have been played, shared and spread on social media and at the festival location.
