Artificial Us

How will our daily life with artificial intelligence look like in the soon future?
ARTIFICIAL US contains three shortfilms, being part of my bachelor thesis at Zurich University of the Arts in Design, Trends & Identity, in 2019. The scenes are inspired by actual facts in fields of science and human behaviour towards machines and after all themselves. The films were written, shot and edited in one semester and exhibited in the Diploma Show for a month.

Bally x ZHdK // Moving Posters

This project is a hommage to the vintage posters of the Bally archive, using the colors of the presented collection. The unexpected usage of arms instead of legs catches the attention through confusion.
Our work was awarded and displayed at the Bally store in Zurich as an interactive installation. This work is a collaboration with Alexandra Rüegg & Franca Sidler.

Additionally, Bolero Magazine published a spread about the project & competition in it’s 2018 October issue, as seen below. An online article was written on l’Officiel.
The videos are currently shown in the Bally exhibition in the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich.

Jan Solo – Overdressed 

In corporation with the Band Jan Solo this music video was created as a first.
The story symbolizes the manipulation of the major music industry, forming starting bands into radio compatible money sources. The band though doesn’t feel comfortable to become “overdressed”, frees itself and celebrates their passion for music.

Besorg es dir // Re-inventing retail rituals

In a 3 week project our class discussed the future of retail rituals. In the process we did field and online research of the current situation and started imagining how we would like the future to be. To communicate our results we created an event, sponsored by Jelmoli.

Human Rights – Collaboration with Amnesty Int. Switzerland

We had the honour to work together with Amnesty International Switzerland, to create a video about human rights. This video should let the observer feel, that he should not take his human rights for granted, and that he is trapped without them. Together with Anouk Schädler and Céline Arnould, we did all, from the concept, over the sound design to the final editing by ourselves. the video was also shown as a commercial on human rights film festival zurich.
