"On September 11th, 2001 the famous ‘Haus des Lehrers’ (House of the Teacher) building at Berlin Alexanderplatz has been enhanced to become world’s biggest interactive computer display: Blinkenlights.
The upper eight floors of the building were transformed in to a huge display by arranging 144 lamps behind the building’s front windows. A computer controlled each of the lamps independently to produce a monochrome matrix of 18 times 8 pixels.
During the night, a constantly growing number of animations could be seen. But there was an interactive component as well: you were able to play the old arcade classic Pong on the building using your mobile phone and you could place your own love letters on the screen as well…”
My zoetrope outcome for the Design for Print pathway project: Dance, Rhythm & Costume (Carnivals)
[A zoetrope is a device that produces an illusion of action from a rapid succession of static pictures]
Exploring the culture, history and social context of dance, rhythm and costume. I chose to look at carnivals (Notting Hill). We had to capture the essence of the dance, reflecting the energy, exuberance and joy through image, materials and colour. It did not have to be a literal interpretation but rather an abstract one.

Research for design project: ‘Re-tell Me a Story’
A series of three advertisements (March 2009) for ‘Sabugosa’, the Brazilian book store, use modern and quirky illustrations by Grupo Magneto to get their point across; Pinocchio, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel all feature in their own adverts which display the slogan ‘Greatest stories last forever’. The characters have grown old, yet continue to have the same characteristics they had when they were younger. For example, Rapanzel still remains captive in her tower bleaching her long, now grey hair.
"The fairy tale, which to this day is the first tutor of children because it was once the first tutor on mankind, secretly lives on in the story. The first true storyteller is, and will continue to be, the teller of fairy tales.” Walter Benjamin
