Brand identity for Ripo Fabrika

















Bread
performance


I once heard that to understand mankind you have to at first understand its bread story.

With that in mind, during the decolonization project, I designed a live interactive performance using 1 table, 45 eaters, 45 pieces of fresh bread, 45 stories, 45 listeners, and 1 recipe to encourage this understanding process.

October 2021, Maastricht











What does it say if a nation eats bread just on very rare occasions?
Or that they eat bread without a crust?
Or that the bread recipe hasn't changed throughout years and has been kept in very big secrecy?
Or that the meal doesn’t even count if there isn’t bread involved?








































I believe that the answers to our national identities can be found in very simple questions like these.
We just have to learn how to listen better.

So.

What's your Bread story?
What stories can Bread bring to the table?
What can your Bread tell about you?








Poetic AR


Poetic AR was a project developed in collaboration with Imagination of Things, a play studio based in Amsterdam. It aim was to investigate the creative connections between poetry and augmented reality and experiment with its overlapping possibilities.

“We approach augmented reality as a creative tool that we can fill with play and poetics. To create prompts that challenge what our phone camera can see and breathe meaningful moments into overwhelming social media platforms.” V.Freire

EXPERIENCE 1

An AR experience with time, poetry and technology. The loading moment is present in our lives as a gatekepper and often an inconvenient small bump when moving on in our digital errands.

What if these moments could be something else?

EXPERIENCE 2

Our world is now awash in an unpredecedented volume of data, althoug our brains haven’t evolved to be able to process it all, however we continue to produce even more data every second. Esspecially through pictures.

54,400 photos are taken every second, 196 million per hour, 4.7 billion per day, 32.9 billion per week, 143 billion per month, and 1.72 trillion per year.

This AR experience proposes a reflection on this collective action and its impact on each of us.

What is it that we are really capturing in these photos?

Dreams I live around


LET THERE ALWAYS BE SOME DREAM AWAKE

It is said, "show me your friends and i will show you your future".
But how about dreams?
If I will show you the dreams of my closest people, will you show me my future?

Realising I don't know what people who are around me dreams about, I simply asked it and explored it.

They say everything is made of Four elements:
Earth, Water, Air, Fire.
But who is the fifth?
And how to encounter it?
Let the instruction guide you.
And let the artwork happen within you.
