I have been commissioned by Toot Yung Art Center to create visuals and projection content for Daan Botlek’s Inhabited Hypercube exhibition at Cho Why on the 14th of March 2015). The exhibition took place in Soi Nana (Chinatown, Bangkok).
Due to the limited time I had to prepare for this, I decided to animate some of his work composed of simple outlined characters in different situation. I was given one file containing around 50 drawings, I narrowed it down to animate 9 scenes. Using after effects I created 9 loops, including the logo of Toot Yung. I then created a mapping and projected opposite of Cho Why, mixing it with my other visuals.

I also had a projection running in “Food court”, a town house next to Cho Why, the projection could be only seen through a window, from the rooftop of Cho Why. I projected an inverted color slideshow of the work of Daan. I controlled both projections from the first floor of Cho Why using 2 laptops.
