The fifth edition of ExpositIO will officially open tonight at 8 p.m. The idea behind this annual event is to show the work UT’s Industrial Design students do in their free time. As it turns out, the students’ hobbies include painting, make-up, film-making and even woodworking.
Turning into a Tim Burton character
‘I didn’t need to prepare anything specifically for this exhibit, because I do make-up and drawings so often, whenever I have the time,’ says Annemarie Bult, who often spends an hour or two a day perfecting her make-up and turning herself into various characters. ‘I like the idea of transforming into someone else. For these particular pictures, I got inspired by creepy stuff like characters from Tim Burton movies.’ Annemarie Bult doesn’t just paint on her face, but enjoys regular paper as well. Her drawings are also displayed in the exhibition space of Vrijhof.
48 hours to make a movie
Another Industrial Design student, Duncan Lorraine, has a different hobby: films. Not only watching them, but also making them and starring in them. At ExpositIO, you can see his short movie titled ‘Het Heilige Huisje’, which he managed to make within two short days. ‘I made the film with my friends for a competition called “48 hour film project”. As the name suggests, you have only 48 hours to make a film based on a specified genre and other requirements,’ explains Lorraine, who worked on the film script and played the main character.
