Dutch visual artist Rogier van der Zwaag makes entrancing short films and animations that play with shape, sound, shadow and the viewer’s perception. His projects have ranged from videos of ​​slowly shifting geometric forms, to orchestrated shows of smoke and light that visualize sound. He also creates playful real-world interventions, creating beguiling illusions using practical effects. Rather than starting with a full-blown concept in mind, Rogier begins with a basic idea, and experiments with this concept in front of his camera until he hits on something appealing.
