Another workshop at the museumN8 in the Joods Historical Quarter in Amsterdam. During the party, the visitors of the Museumnight helped us in making some paper puppet animations, which we’re recorded directly and shown as visuals behind the DJ. We created some scenes in which people brought there characters to live! We used the same setup on different festivals / parties lately and we love it 🙂

Just give us a load of material and we”ll make something! That’s what we said when the CODA museum asked us to make a jewelry presentation… No question, cardboard took over the show. The show took place during the holland papier bienalle. We got 50 big plates of cardboard en decided to go make a cardboard tribe of gorillaesque figures: this the result!
