My body, My laboratory

This video was made as a video portrait,

We started in 2022 by interviewing Raf, filming him, making photo’s and video’s, going through old photo’s and collecting drawings from his sketchbooks.

Quite early on, a music piece was written that became the basis for the final video.

As a final step, we made the animations with elements from photo’s and drawings by Raf, these feature a character which we named “Rafmannetje”.

The final video was first displayed as part of a video installation at “Poetical representations”.

The T-shirt worn by the “Rafmannetje” was also made as a real T-shirt and worn with pride by Raf himself at the exhibition.
