Avenue m’as-tu vu.

watch people pass by

 

Every city should name one street ‘avenue m’as-tu vue’ where there are plenty of terraces and you can watch people to discuss them. Every year, this should change to acknowledge the new hipster area.

 

Workplace Change Agents.

Cool Workspace

Workplace Change Agents is a dedicated team of workplace interior designers and change managers who create the perfect working environment for enterprises and startups that reflect the (desired) corporate culture of the company. They do this by entering the firm for a three-six months analysis period and recommend both improvements in the structure, processes and people needed to be more effective and productive using all the current (and state-of-the-art) technologies and best practices. They don’t just deliver, they participate and make things better in close collaboration with the people and always in respect with the current context.

Ill, sick or just pretending.

A website with pictures where you can guess whether someone is ill, sick or just pretending. A bit like Fashion or Porn but with the different topic of wasted people.

Afterevents; a documentary series about the impact of events.

Afterevents

Inspired by the recent Olympics in Sochi and its consequences I thought of Afterevents, a documentary series about the true impact of events.

Every event has a lot of organising in itself. In this documentary series, it follows a whole region and its people in the months towards and after the actual event. I can’t get the idea out of my head that most effort is done upfront while only little attention is spent on the post era of an event. In this documentary series, a discours is being told about the region and its inhabitants (locals) where the event takes place. Ranging from political gatherings and protest marches, over music and sex festivals to large scale sportsevents, this documentary series tells their story and how they deal with the consequences of the event. Local political, economic and social story lines cross each other. The stress and expectations to make the event run smoothly versus the harsh reality of what happens after the event. Is it a hangover or a new dynamic for the region and its people? What with the organisers and temporary infrastructure? And so much more.

The eyes collections art project.

The eyes collections art project

It’s been a while since I added an arts idea but it’s a long time favourite of me. I’m really intrigued by the eyes of people and by extension but those of animals. Everyone has different ones and they are always nice to dive into. My idea today is to set up a small portal to enable people to upload images of their and other eyes into and recycle them in various ways; in posters, in wall paper, in packaging, … All eyes are tagged with categories so you can make your own shuffled collections of eyes. Whether you want only gray ones, green ones or cat eyes, a mixture of exotic animals, or by locations, you create your own query and with the outcome you can order new products with these eyes collections.

Why?

  • “The best stories are told with the eyes. You just need the patience and have to be willing to listen with your heart.”
  • “The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.”
  • “The eyes are window to the soul.”
  • “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”, said by Plato.
  • “My eyes are an ocean in which my dreams are reflected.” ~Anna M. Uhlich
  • “There is more than meets the eyes.”
