Our website for the MAK Center for Art and Architecture brings Schindler’s concept of Space Architecture to the two-dimensional surface of the screen. The site’s grid system emphasizes horizontal and vertical relationships between content elements to create a dynamic and interconnected series of forms on each page. A quirky sans-serif typeface channels the spirit of eccentricity and experimentation that Schindler brought to the California modernist movement.

A collaboration with Gasag Kunstpreiz artist Nik Nowak exploring issues of data privacy in 21st century society. This terminal, exhibited during Berlin Art Week, allowed visitors to sign up for a “post-mortem data deletion service”. VV created a custom application interface with a design that mimics the historic DOS operating system, to reference a nostalgia for a time when data deletion was as simple as erasing something from a disk. Design elements were entirely generated with ascii drawing characters, also in the style of older software design.

Invited by Berlin’s Lab for Emerging Arts and Performance (LEAP) to create a theme for their summer party, VV came up with the concept of an internet search competition.
