Ziggy Pictures’ objective is to bring artists from various backgrounds together, who, sharing a connection and ideas, want to make a change. Continually pushing the boundaries, their collective input in filmmaking and other artistic projects, is directed towards bringing something meaningful to the world. It’s about self-realization, professionalism and having fun at the same time. After all, working side by side is not only a source of inspiration but also a means to achieving a measure of excellency. Serious and dedicated, but still imbued with a happy-go-lucky spirit, we try to keep our footing in this money-driven world. Our fortune is made up of our own resources. Ziggy Pictures is more focused on the process than the destination. The work never ends.
On display at “Het Nieuwe Instituut” Museumpark 25, Rotterdam. 31st of January – 26 of April.
This experiment is based on a dialogue between the creature and the creation. Dancer starts by falling down. Based on that first movement, the ‘creators’ make supports: visualizing the ongoing development between user and product. From that creation on, Dancer continues with ‘falling’ followed with the creation of additional support. Together they become a choreography.

Reacted Monuments is a participatory urban machine that triggers new stories that citizens and newcomers can re-appropriate and interpret.
The machine aims to re-activate the interest in the city’s monuments. It can be seen as a game in which people are challenged to act in a different way in front of the monuments. The monuments in question are decontextualized from their usual environment and projected in a different place of the same city. In each intervention, the installation films the participating citizens acting in front of the fictional piece of public space (the monument’s projection). Giving the opportunity to interpret a monument’s history and meaning, is to give birth to common denominators that would link different cultures of the city.

‘Creatures with creations and their segregation of joy’ is the title of a design research on how to embed movement related to expression and emotional release in a daily life. Due to multi functionality of computers and their expansion most people spend their working hours while siting behind a computer.
By making an office chair based on the dynamics of the body and linking these body movements to the control of the interface, work can become dynamic and expressive again. An attempt on integrating joy.
The prototyping of the chair was done in collaboration with Sami Sabik.

Embracing the Touch is a project about designer’s relation with the works and designer’s presence in them.
Design is a matter, tangible and desirable, that carries meaning in itself, in its body. It’s what you understand and experience through physicality. It’s like a garment that you can try on, see how it looks on you. The same way you project yourself through someone else.
So behind the matter stands a designer. Do we think how much intimacy, personality he or she leaves in the design? Would it change our perception meeting the author; facing the fact that a designer is a physical body, made from flesh and blood, having certain physiology, certain volume, smell, breath? Does it create intimate relation with the user? And does this intimacy attract or repel?
Collection inspired by Barcelona – its stone wall street labyrinths, human noise and fight for existence…
