1 + 1 = ÉÉN, masterproject — Starting from a search for a shared identity for my twin sister and myself, I am getting closer to the ultimate goal of the project: creating a new shared image using a new design method. Everything is fused into a publication that contains a wide range of images built up withing the process. This publication serves at the same time as a toolbox to share my invented design method with others. The idea of combining layers is imortant in my process. Identities, images, people. Translated as ‘1+1= ONE’, which means bringing things together and creating something new.

Luca School of Arts, Ghent — Studentproject ‘250 + 16’ that translates a search for a system to organize 250 different objects and link them to a predetermined text about 16 gods and their attributes. My solution was to use industrial sticker sheets where each sticker is numbered and can be collected on a created grid. During this project I discovered sticker sheets as new design medium and was triggered to explore their possibilities.
