de Leeuw

My name is Michelle de Leeuw and I recently graduated from ArtEZ with a Bachelor degree in Graphic Design. During this study I worked as in intern for half a year at Multitude. I like to make a combination of analog and digital. For example translating a digital format into an analog form or using an analog sketches method like folding paper to end up with a digitalized illustration for a print. I also like to look at movement seen in video / making animation but also using the way of thinking you use to make a video into something analog like a book.
Mijn naam is Michelle de Leeuw, en ik ben recent afgestudeerd voor mijn Bachelor Grafisch vormgeven bij ArtEZ. Tijdens deze studie heb ik voor een half jaar stage gelopen bij Multitude (Vorm voor Verschilmakers). Ik hou er van om analoog en digitaal te combineren in mijn werk. Bijvoorbeeld een vertaling van een digiale format naar een analoge versie. Of juist een analoge vorm van schetsen zoals het vouwen van papier, gebruiken om een digitale illustratie te maken voor een print. Ik heb ook altijd intresse in het maken van bewegende beelden. In de vorm van een video of de techniek van film gebruiken voor een analoge vorm zoals een boek.

Graduation project - Overwhelming Calm

A desktop made Meditation video. Made for a lovely lady who has some trouble with the amount of digital clutter she has hoarded up till now. Causing stress related feelings towards her computer. With this meditation I want to change the stressfull feelings to calm feelings. By using images she is used to (pieces of her paintings) and a calming experience inside the interface she is afraid of. All the "animation" is made by screen- recording a desktop. The sounds are also recorded from the computer.

Accessible to All - Thesis - book & second form

My thesis about public areas, the public art and the reaction of the public. Mostly talking about how people get angry at it. The second form for the thesis is a cloth which can be used to protest a public artwork by draping it over the work. Instead of destroying it with graffiti for example.

Het Nieuwe Instituut - Arboretum

For the practical assignment for Het Nieuwe Instituut, we had to find a new way of making the archive more approachable to people who don't know anything about Design or architecture. Me and Jesse van Meel decided to make the archive a vissible experience. Using a part of the archive material that has a function but also a creative outlet for the architect. This video is a prototype for a digital forest/arboretum.
