Curiosity Stream / Inside The Mind Of A Con Artist
In this 6-part documentary series we dive into the minds of successful con artists to unravel the psychology that underlays some of the most extraordinary cases of deception in recent history. A team of experts in the fields of forensic psychology, behavioural science, and neuroscience look into the minds of Christophe Rocancourt, Matthew Cox, Frederic Bourdin, Jan Lewandowski, Shaun Greenhalgh and Helmut Kiener, uncovering the unconscious meanings and motivations behind their actions. We look at what makes the art of conning so fascinating, why we are so susceptible to being conned and what the revelations of these con artists expose about ourselves.
In 2009 we were challenged by PANL and SONY to create a film that articulates the artistic possibilities of the Sony Alpha DSLR and use it to inspire and open their PANL-Award Show for photography professionals.
We investigated how light transforms into images and to make this ‘invisible’ process visible. Job done!

Transformoney 2.0 is a film that questions the Value of Money and by doing so make you start thinking about what money really is? It was created at the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert, where money does not exist for an entire week. This film follows the project of artist Dadara on his quest to deconstruct the term ‘value’.
This ‘Insight Installation’ was developed to brief a group of Dutch creatives on a campaign for a refugee foundation. Instead of giving them a normal briefing, they could experience a refugee’s intense journey themselves. It is the world’s first story told using an Oculus Rift, treadmill and an Arduino to connect them all.
