Transforming Words

In a collaboration with students from Creative Writing (Arnhem) and Woordkunst (Antwerp) our department created a performance around the theme 'the map'. Together with Max Urai and Xandry van den Besselaar we worked on creating a city for blind people. I worked on visuals translating the way blind people 'see' the world through other senses. For the performance they wrote a scenario about two blind people meeting for the first time in person, and I created live visuals based on their feelings and actions. We performed this in Antwerp, Arnhem, Leipzig and on the Frankfurter Buchmesse as you can see in the video.
