The presentation at the Graphic Design Festival Breda 2015

The exhibition at the Graphic Design Festival 2015 (Breda, NL) and at the Dutch Design Week 2015 (Eindhoven, NL) were a great success, we had a lot of fun and talked to interesting people. As the project was about to come to an ending, we found out our thirst for answers wasn't quenched yet. The idea of One Window #1, only using one silk screen within the process, provided a fertile soil to start our research, but we wanted more. In order to continue our research we decided, in deliberation with Woes, to drop the single silk screen framework, thus making room for our ongoing search to catch sunlight. 

Several results came out of our first two ‘tests’, but those results caused even more questions. What sparked our enthusiasm most were the marks on the screen made by the sun. The reaction with the emulsion caused a cloudy structure that gradually turns from dense to clear, depending on the amount of light. Could this be the way light moved through the atmosphere? Our target is to find a way to capture this structure and enhance the effect.


Does the cloudiness come from the way the light ‘moves’ through the air?

The next steps in our exploration will be presented on this website, and physically during Designkwartier 2016 (May 27–29) at:
