When light is broken, all the colours of the spectrum appear (2018)
When light is broken, all the colours of the spectre appear. For an artwork at Campus Zuid of Karel de Grote Hogeschool in Antwerp, Dani O' Dean designed a light installation which, when in rest, beams out a soft white light. However, when walking beneath the installation, the white light is broken and turns into a spectre of colors.
Silent Conquests | Ypres (2016)
Silent Conquests consisted of an in situ installation with video and was part of the 'Sporen' exhibition in Ypres.The idea is based on the fact that the surface of the earth exists out of 6 big tectonic plates.
'The light of the sun is white. When this light is broken, all the colours of the spectre appear.'
On Making Artists | D14-D31 (2013)
A visual diagram was made representing all the conditions art students have to satisfy at an art school in order to graduate as an artist. In the center, the artist is represented as the mixed colour of them all: brown.
General Provisions, application field (2012)
A collaborative project that took place during a residency period at Lokaal 01 in Antwerp and was later exhibited in Extra City Antwerp, has as subject the police code of the city itself. This document states all the general rules of the city towards its citizens. During the residency, we read, analysed and interpreted this text. As a final result, we made a series of illustrations. The drawings accompany rules from the codex that are vague, multi-interpretable, poetic or absurd and show hiatus in the text.
Instruction (2012 - ongoing)
On its way
Some projects we are currently working on
Travelers' Tales (2017 - ongoing)
Travelers’ Tales relates the current trend of democratic storytelling through social media to the way tales and myths got spread around the globe by the first traders and travelers. With the aid of new technology, we will create a network of people spread around the globe. Each participant will create part of a story and travel to another location in order to pass it on. The tale will thus ‘physically’ travel around the world, passed on from mouth to mouth, growing and altering with each of the 100 steps and include many personalities, cultures and visions.
City Projects | Stadsprojecten - The Intimate City (2018 - ongoing)
People have always lived in communities, since living together is safer than living alone, provision of food is easier and we have that strong urge to be part of a group that does not just protect us in a physical way, but also forms our identity and by confirming who we are also protects us in a psychological way. In modern cities such as Antwerp however, this sense of safety is hard to find. When walking around in the city you live in, meeting someone you know is more exception than rule, things seem to change rapidly and people speak different languages or have different backgrounds. Living in a city is challenging, you often need to adapt to new things and are almost constantly confronted with a wide variety of impulses coming either from people, traffic, architecture, advertisement, art…
Staring into Darkness (2016 - ongoing)
As a collective with different expertise and interests in the scientific field we would like to conduct a multidisciplinary project that concentrates on the uncertainty and obscurity in science by making use of two intertwining themes: uncertainty in scientific experiments and the relationship between the scientist and the (uncertain) matter he or she studies.
A Future Journey (2014 - ongoing)
For another way of working with the idea of the movement of the earth, we designed the plans for a sculpture both static and evolving at the same time.
