Hans Karelszoon Van Dijck portfolio website
We finished this a while ago, but never came round to posting it. So here goes:
We built a portfolio website for Hans Karelszoon Van Dijck, an artist and good friend of ours. Van Dijck's works combine performance, audiovisual elements and litography or intaglio printing, and the whole creation process is extensively documented.
Van Dijck wanted a website that would show all these different aspects of his work in a not too structured way, with a naviation system that is deliberately opaque. Visitors can then get lost in the site and spin their own narrative. Another important prerequisite for the site was a backend that would allow for a high level of customization. So we provided a CMS with a number of building blocks, various methods for inserting images, video's, audio and text blocks into project pages. We made a basic stylesheet to maintain some degree of harmony, but added a tool to the backend to create custom colour scheme for pages. The result is a kaleidoscopic but very personal portfolio site.
