Van der Haak also created a flipbook on a stand that blurs old and young faces.

Van der Haak graduated from the college’s Design Products course and Beyond the Body is on display at Show RCA 2012 until 1 July.

Here’s some more information from the designer:

Beyond the Body

A perception of appearance and identity

My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different bodies, ages, generations and identities.

In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric so the body and the silk become one, distorting our perception or revealing a completely new physical form. The movement then brings this to life.

Beyond the Body brings into being an ambiguous image that intrigues, astonishes or sometimes even disturbs.
