Portrait of colonial Dutch Indies KNIL officer Jo Disse. The video traits the heroism of Mr Disse and let’s him show his cherished recollection in original pictures and fantastic stories. The stories recall 60 years of his life in Indonesia, from a successful merchant to a war hero for the British Empire (Decorated MBE) and thereafter, at the rise of a free Indonesia.
Portrait of the city at the verge of growing into the Dutch megalo harbour city it is known today. Architecture at embryo level was treated as a residu of harbour labor and mutli-cultural sources of culture. Seen from the subjective eyes of a subversive History of Art journalist, Mr. Tito Cruls.
Multi-modal and multi-media project created way before the multimedia integration into the computer machines happened. Used various techniques of film making and video, photography (mono and stereo, and panorama) and audio design. One of my graduating project at the Artez, Arnhem Hogeschool voor de kunsten, Holland. The project focussed on expressing visual language of French vernacular typography and aesthetics in general. A voyage to the source (in my native country and about Christmas time) to re-discover the limits and liberties of French graphic design origins. Searching the boundaries of ugliness as a visual concept.
