Book made for Declaring Reason Exhibition at Museum Meermanno 03.06—24.09. We were asked to interpret Joan Derks pamphlet: "People of The Netherlands" from 1781. Focusing on his ideas of vigilance and manipulation, fake news seemed like the contemporary link. The manipulating aspect of fake news often come from the association of headlines and images. This project is an attempt to showcase this tension by dividing these two elements. All images are from news stories, under the category of politics, which the public has sent to review at fact checking sites in the year of 2016. Made in collaboration with Leith Benkhedda. Supervised by Niels Schrader, Maarten Cornel & Lauren Alexander. Close ×

Arto profiltekster
Arto.dk was the first big social network in Denmark - started in 1998. A part of the network was that each profile had it's own iframe profile-text. These texts were a small website you could code yourself, often containing favorite bands, hometown, boyfriends, drinking habits etc. This project is a attempt to index and perpetuate these texts, organized by geographics.

Made during Typography class at KABK supervised by Thomas Buxo. Thanks to Tao Kitamoto for the scraped profile-texts and Linnea Frandsen for photos. Close ×

ISO 216 360° is a tool that uses the format of ISO 216 in virtual reality space. Merging both virtual and static strategies, ISO 216 360° - is an investigation on how the fact of virtuality extends the boundaries within ISO 216. Each room is it’s own exploration of composition, and altogether they create new ways of perceiving poster creation. Videos when i have storage on my Vimeo again...

Bill font
Bill is a neo-grotesque with a number alternative version to specific letters. This is inspired by leetspeek, and contemporary internet culture. Leet (or “1337”), also known as eleet or leetspeak, is an alternative alphabet for many languages that is used primarily on the Internet. It uses some characters to replace others in ways that play on the similarity of their glyphs via reflection or other resemblance.
