Het Domijn, impressions

Het Domijn, Idiots

Yesterday Erik and I visited Afke and Floris at Het Domijn in Weesp. They just moved in a very beautiful atelier. (Floris worked very hard the last couple of months to renovate it)
Het Domijn is a location in Weesp, where a lot of artists have their studios. There are painters, but also a lot of artists work for theaterproductions. For instance there is a company, which rents oldtimers to filmmakers. Yesterday it was open for public, you could sit and drink something and listen to nice music and you could visit all the studios.
Afke and Floris made a small presentation of their work. I took some pictures. They work a lot with stuffed animals, which died of natural causes. (just to let you know)
I very much like the stories Afke and Floris tell in their work.

(in the next two posts I will be showing some other impressions of Het Domijn)



Beautiful new series of photographs from Frank Visser and Karin Nussbaumer for Milk magazine. When I was still working at Studio IJM I made the illustration that is used in the first picture. I'm always surprised how Frank uses colour, hand-made props and redecorated objects (like covering a chair in paper for example) to tell a story.Making a new world with all those ingredients is something that makes his work so very special.

Some weeks ago my boyfriend worked together with Katja Gruijters on a project.
"Katja Gruijters is a food professional. She designs products, spots consumer trends and develops concepts for companies around human desires." She has very interesting ideas.
She did a project about refused fruits and vegetables. Here you can see and read (in Dutch) more about this project.
The apple on the pictures she gave to my boyfriend. I think it would be very nice to be able to buy this in supermarkets.
