Over the last couple weeks my crochet designs got published in two magazines, Let’s Knit Magazine and Homespun Australia!
Also, I finally received a copy of Freedom in Action, a doctoral thesis by a friend of mine, Niels van Miltenburg. He asked me to design a cover based on the poem “The Road not Taken” by Robert Frost:
(just to be clear: that black bar wasn’t my idea… it’s the standard layout for all theses over there…. it’s horrific.)
And…. last but not least, my work kinda got featured in Dutch newspaper Trouw! Julie van der Hove wrote a small article about the Utrecht Down Under exhibition at the Wolvenplein prison, and mentioned the DPRK project. It’s a paid-for article so I won’t copy everything here, just the part where you can read about my work:
My work is currently supported

Last weekend was the presentation of the SWOOF x DPRK lamp by Yudo Design!
Yudo Design has created an interactive led table lamp which you can operate with hand movements. They often collaborate with artists and designers to create new skins, the replaceable outer part of the lamp, so lamp owners can easily change the appearance of their lamps themselves. This weekend the lamp will also be on display (and for sale) at NEST at the Hoog Catharijne shopping mall, at the Seats2Meet venue.
Here’s a video on how the SWOOF design works:
This Sunday I’ll be giving another short artist talk about the DPRK project, again at PechaKucha Night Utrecht, but this time the event is also part of Cultural Sundays (Culturele Zondagen).
Hope to see you there at the Winkel van Sinkel in Utrecht (NL), 16:15hr sharp!
Upcoming Thursday I’ll be having a chat about the DPRK project at Pecha Kucha Night at Het Huis, Utrecht!
The idea of a Pecha Kucha presentation is that you have 20 images and only talk for 20sec about each of them, so I tweaked the idea a bit and I’m going to show you 20 short clips of 20sec each of the video I made when I was in North Korea!
Above you can see a film still of one of the shots that will be included in the presentation. 🙂
Check out the Pecha Kucha website over >here<, there’s also a Facebook event. In preparation to this presentation, the DPRK project page on my portfolio website will be updated tomorrow, so I’ll also drop a link over here once I’ve finished working on that.
Hope to see you on Thursday!!
