Valeris is a side-project I initiated in 2014 inspired by virtual avatars seen in fictions. Exploring sensitivity through our technological era, she embodies our current generation of digital-led lives. I've worked on a series of films, animated gifs and other stills to develop the universe of its persona. The first instalment of this project is Discovery Phase, a two-minute film welcoming the viewer in a alien and futuristic world. The film was both shot in a real studio and created virtually, starring Laurence Van de Perre as the real entity. From there, the world expands in gif art, alien textures and other films.
In a verdant ecosystem residing on a planet from our galaxy, live unpredictable creatures yet attractive. Observations from the Earth revealed hints of an ancient civilization and taught us that its atmosphere is clean and healthy. A human subject is sent over to discover its nature and collect new images.
Exploring the depths of a vibrant, multi-layered ecosystem, our favourite avatar is stepping into one of the only forest glades around. Raising from nowhere, an ancient building seems to be clear of parasites and predators. So far.
A quick animation playing with the environment as light and sound, the face of Valeris as the main act. She is suggested to be heading back home after a life-changing trip to the Philipines where she had some new tatoos. V says: "It's getting late on the Philippines beaches. The chopper's bout to bring me back home."
TGAF means "These Gyals Are on Fiyah" and is a radio group show formed by DJ Ouai, Oklou, Carin Kelly and Miley Serious. The show is played on Piiaf webradio, they enjoy discussing with guests on subjects about music but also society and other art mediums. I'm glad I was chosen to design their logo.
Hyperalliance is a mixed media initiative led by Panteros666 and Ines Alpha. I was invited to join this community of designers and artists. I teamed up with Amine Ghorab to create motion visuals for the live shows touring worlwide, starting at Mars Center in Moscow, Russia.

Laetitia Bech is a visual artist based in Paris whose work bridges the gap between film, photography and sculpture, she creates contexts of mixed reality. For the creation of her website, she teamed up with an eclectic group of designers. Working with graphic designer Agnieszka Zimolag on the UI of the website, I created icons and background animations matching the spirit of Laetitia's work.
