A SINGLE ANT

“Observe a single ant, and it doesn’t make much sense, walking in one direction, suddenly careening in another for no obvious reason, doubling back on itself. Thoroughly unpredictable. The same happens with two ants, a handful of ants. But a colony of ants makes fantastic sense. Specialized jobs, efficient means of exploiting new food sources, complex underground nests with temperature regulated within a few degrees. And critically, there’s no blueprint or central source of command—each individual ants has algorithms for their behaviors.

Cocky Eek, Wingz

Wings // is an embodiment of Leonorda da Vinci’s studies for wings (1487-1490). Once speeded up the person can stir its wings in the air. As one is not used to this body position in motion, it could evoke strong physical reactions for the participants once landed on the floor.

Wind-Dress // is an enlarged rectangular form derived from the wings as described above, attached to the body.The interplay of the wind, the body and the cloth are forming a cinematografic sequence.

Cocky Eek, Kuma-Kuna
Kuma Kuna, a project initiated by Maria Blaisse for which she developped a specific elastic foam to make a study form in movement. In this project I developped a serie costums with a focus on the stubborn qualities of the material. The costums are trying to find their counterbalance of the strenght of the human body. In movement the wearer is influencing the form of the costumn, and visa versa, together forming a fascinating language.

Cocky Eek, Illumine

‘The first corporeal form which some call corporeity is in my opinion light.’ 
Robert Grosseteste

They become alive when starting to breath
moving their inner light space
the skin is the beholder of their integrity 
preventing themselves for being solved in outer space

Noctiluca miliaris, or “thousand nightlights”, or many people call it the “light of the sea”. It is an organism which looks like a transparant balloon with a small tail. It produces that bioluminecense light of the sea, to scare of its predators. One summernight I swom with a transparant costum stuffed with small glow in the dark sticks in the nortsea. I was an obvious enemy; the Noctilucaas started to flash their lights and intermingled with my the “glow in the darks” of the costum. Only a few passengers were witness of a luminous phenomenology and all what’s left is a picture of an empty costum after the performance…
