Foamboy started as a very hands on experiment. I used the leftovers of my project Architectural Acoustics and started gluing it on a manikin. The way that the material moved on the body was very graphical and it reminded me of the Triadic ballet of Oskar Schlemmer but also the work of Escher. Especially the effect of light and movement made a very cool optical effect. The black Foamboy monster was born, using an unorthodox way of creating shapes and silhouettes, evolving to a better and more complex body.
