Liefde

Liefde voor oude mensen, Ze zijn zo geleefd, ze geven niet meer om welke dag wanneer valt en hoe de regen Via de versleten dakpannen, recht in de roeste goot, via de pijp de ingevallen put induikt Ze zitten niet meer met vragen, of hebben ze in kronkels vervrongen van zelfgekweekte groenten en overvolle diepvriezen, zo koud en ’t is warm in de zomer, ze puffen en beseffen dat dit zweet niet meer hetzelfde zweet is als toen ze nog gingen hardlopen, in de broeken die bij elke knieplooi veel meer omhoog ging naar standaarden te hoog, of toch hip. Liefde voor oude mensen, ze geven en delen en zien liever anderen hun tanden rotten met zoetigheid, omdat die van hun al elke avond gaat zwemmen hun rond zwembad van ongeveer 8 cm doorsnede bermhartig en lief, alsof hun vel enkel nog zacht kan zijn met rekbare rimpels die verhalen kunnen vertellen alsof ze zelf met flappende armen de stoffige projector aandraaien Liefde, alsof ze elke dag in de aarde woelen om voeling te krijgen met hun huis na stilstand de bommen zijn nog vage knallen in hun hoofd, als wij ons hoofd stootten en veel te lange nachten met domme dingen, leuke dingen, foute dingen, vage beschrijvingen en verbeteringsplannen die dan onder duiken met de ochtend die de nacht voor wakkeren betekend, zo laat Liefde, hou mij vast Liefde, hou mij hier Liefde, ga niet weg Maar sluit de deur en zet u En vertel over de lijnen in uw hand, en de eksters die zich rond de ogen bevinden zodat ik de juiste kan uitpikken, en mijn ogen niet gitzwart worden Bedankt

Sliep

Ik sliep met elektrotechniek hoe de ruggengraad gedraaid kan worden tot mate van verbranding de scherpte en de warmte, diep gedrongen tot nadenken asynchroon draait de wereld door, gespiesd op eigen as, niet wetende wanneer. zo daar de zonde zondaar op zondags geluk uit, de biecht klapt en slaat toe* *meer info op het nummer 0474918193 Vliezen in afprijzing, alles in overvloed en keer op keer redden we ons met aangedreven boeien, zolang het maar kan gedaagd tot vriend, collega, consuminderend, concullega en burn-out-partner in geodriehoekrelatie, zo combineer je lat en polygamie zet eigen rekken recht om alles plaats te geven, smijt het kastensysteem door de ruit en eigen living binnen, je verzint het niet Geschreven en vergeten door geen geografische virtuele locatie, zo ver staan we nog niet. //autosave 11/09/2018 14:46 de dag dat de dag stierf, slaapzacht ronkend roest rijdt door de straten, kijkt iemand op van op het pad, stenen lijken verloren te hebben benijdt door slavernij, zonnekloppers zweten langs hun pens, de seconde die niemand had lag hier er liggen golven in het bad, ze koppen schuimen en de koppen schuimen, ’t is een soort gierigheid in de gulzigheid die ze vinden. Een verloren parel in een oesterschelp, gekraakt op het gouden gebit. ik sliep de ogen brandden nog na, vieze schimmen en netjes is het oog net niet. dweil met de knokel geheten naar Paul Ols, in het donker zien we eigen geschiedenis zich her schrei ven komt aan de oppervlakte, het eenmaal gezonken plastiek gepaard met applaus we zijn zo goed slaapzacht

As Silent as most Nights are

As silent as most nights are the opposite took you away it was a dark night and even when the sun came up there was no light only silence and tears. people came out to turn into themselves you slept we closed our eyes, awakening our memories and you ‘til reality comes crushing hope Wherever you are, you are here, yet Another star shines Like you were Like you are You left, became more, brought love, and the flowers brought the colors back

Eigen Voeten

Voor mijn eigen voeten Ik leg me hierbij neer Bij de daden die ik niet vertrouw, nu de vogelverschrikker kapot is, komen ze pikken ik leg stenen rondom mijn tenen zodat ik van kleinsaf een klein doolhof opbouw daar loop ik dan, verloren, terwijl mijn hart nog bloed spuwt op de grond die op de vloerverarming na, koud aanvoelt de sporen trekken zich tot het begin, tot waar ik de eerste stap langzaam wou zetten toen het gejuich nog klonk zoals het hoorde ooit zullen ze reiken, tot daar, aan de rand van de stenen waar de doornstruiken mijn bubbel terug doorprikken en ik implodeer in eigen brein

Ethiopia is one of the African countries with the fastest growing economy. And like a teenager that grows too rapidly, the body of the country has trouble following the curve of its development. This friction is omnipresent in the streetscape and when given the opportunity to work on a development project in the city we used this time inside one of the biggest informal open air markets of the continent to shoot the story of the people there.

Museumnacht @industriemuseum

Jacques

Videomapping / Construction

6 december 2018

The industriemuseum, an museum who focusses on bringing the old textile industry in Ghent, wanted to do something new for Museumnacht. At this night, the museums are free for the public and we made something interactive. The creators collective Nerdlab designed this ‘drawing loom’ with which you and the other visitors can create a tapestry of the beautiful city of Ghent. Push a button and get inspired by the sounds and silhouettes of the industrial Ghent of the 19th century.

Oktober 2017

Prutswerk and Clair Obscur are two music organisations who are based in Ghent. I got contacted to take care of one of the main events of Clair Obscuur. I wanted to explore the possibilities of Cinema 4D so I made a jellyfish, piramids and planets to project at the party. Combined with a wide variety of effects, I VJ'ed all night long.

Projection mapping - content

Oktober 2017

This happens what you live with people with the same thoughts, the same music, the same vibe. In the beginning, there was a home, a place of toghetherness and comfort. We called it Burgstraat 100. To celebrate, we threw occacional parties where we did our best to be free. These parties will be forever in the memories of a lot of people wandering in Ghent. But a group wanted more, a second and a third room were born. This was the start of KAMER ZES (translated as room six). 


For this project, I combined Cinema 4D, photoshop and after effects. The buildings are made entirely in cinema 4D from scratch and de face in the middle is taken from to poster but had to be retouched in Photoshop. The idea was to create an 3D effect on all aspects in the scene. This is reached by the 3D models and the face was an 3D videomapping. For the videomapping I used Resolume, an video mapping and VJ'ing software tool.

Mardanse Dance Performance

Videomapping / Content / Concept Construction

7 december 2018

Mardanse came to Nerdlab with a new assignment to design the decor for a 360° dance performance. They also wanted to experiment with VR during the performance, but after some discussion we changed the VR-experience to an introduction of the performance. We did the construction as simple as possitble to reduce costs and made content for the projection mapping and the VR.

Animation

November 2018

Animation for Mutation festival, a design festival hosted in Ghent.

Jannes Lambrecht (1994) graduated in 2016 from the KU Leuven as an Industrial Engineer. Being fascinated with design he decided to pursue an additional bachelor in Graphic Design at Luca Arts in Ghent. He hopes to combine both studies in the future and thus creating a better tomorrow through design. Jannes explores the world and its issues through making visuals and writing poetry. In his spare time he engages in local development projects and already completed one project in Guaranda, Ecuador in collaboration with the municipality of Evergem.

Simen Lambrecht (1993) graduated in 2017 as Master in Architecture from the KU Leuven. His master years were divided between studying in Belgium, Norway, and China. In between, he completed development projects with local communities in Guaranda, Ecuador and Addis Abeba, Ethiopia. From a young age he loved to explore unknown territory in the comfort of his parents’ boundaries and was always looking for the next adventure to see what he hadn’t seen before. This ideal finally led Simen to architecture. The rich history, the need to travel to understand space while allowing him to profoundly change small pieces of the world through knowledge-sharing, compiled his passion during his master years in university. People are –or should be- the centre of architecture, how people move in relation to space became key to his understanding of architecture. Both architecture and photography have the capacity to capture time. This correlation drove him to explore photography through his studies and during his spare time, to capture moments of spontaneity and genuine emotion.

The collective Jean-Jacques grew as a remembrance to past days when both brothers were leaders in the Chiro (a Flemish movement that aims to support young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development through play and being outdoors). Even though Jannes and Simen were schooled in different fields, a passion for eco-politics advocated through storytelling and photography, connected them. They believe that to induce long-term change within any given society, which is stabilized by a committed government, is to persuade that same government to change their policies. Top-down and bottom-up models in a necessary equilibrium. Where both the people and whoever represents them find each other in a poised climate. They advocate dignity through design and beauty, and capture time unfiltered and honest.

Everything and everyone is ambiguous, so we try to embrace it.
