Together with Geert Niermeijer I was responsible for the design of a stage for live-acts and DJ’s for IO-Festival 2010: Cardboard Strikes Back. This included concept design of the stage and embodiment design of all light, sound, rigging and electrical facilities. Incorportating the theme in the design meant using cardboard; a lot of it! In the theme-description the organization talked about a city that was completely taken over by cardboard and cardboard creatures. This lead to the decision to use a 20 by 8 meter cardboard skyline as the main backdrop behind the stage. By using multiple layers of panels depth was created with a 2,5D environment.
