The Book

In Disneyfication Theo Derksen expolers the process through which our public spaces have become increasingly globalized and homogenous, not just in their structures but also in their use of imagery. More and more, the spaces have acquired the characteristics of an amusement park. New places are created to enable people to experience a more perfect version of reality – places which are easy to understand and appear safe for everyone. As far as is possible, problems such as decline, poverty and traffic congestion are eliminated and the environment is arranged in a way that stimulates people’s behaviour in their drive to consume.  



The Process

In this book I sought to tune my CMYK conversions to get a result more contrasty as well as higher in colour. That is very much what this work asks for. Specific projects come with specific challenges. And that’s what I’m interested in. Finding better ways to reproduce images, photography, without getting into outrageously expensive or uncontrollable processes.

Theo Derksen and Teun van der Heijden trusted me completely in doing my job. And that is something to be thankful for. If everybody is allowed to participate in full autonomy within his specialism, this brings great energy to a cooperation.
