About my work:

Everything in my final year was spinning around PLAY as it was my main topic in my dissertation.

MTV - Ident

An old retro game & puzzle is used to create visual patterns in a manner of old analog step sequencers. Each new movement is indicated
and synchronised with the music, and last for 8 steps.

This work is about play in communication and its relationship to
printed language in everyday life. Only through play itself, the
message will be experienced.
