These Sleepless Nights (2019)

Experimental animation recorded with smart phone, select video still and example gifs

There I was trying to sleep in an unfamiliar place. The street lights were too bright and the fan too loud. After some time I got up and turned a sleepless night into an animation experiment. While recording the reflections I moved my phone up and down on the surface of the window and the lights started spinning, creating mesmerizing spectacles to the sound of the fan all of which kept me from sleeping yet again.

To whom it may concern (on-going series since 2019)

Over the past 5 years I have collected free advertisement magazines I find once or twice a week in my letterbox. It’s very useful material for pointless text collages and mismatching patterns and purposeless websites. More will follow soon...
