In Bloom displays a superimposition of red and pink icosahedrons which are shown as three interlocking golden rectangles.
From a set of movements, each icosahedron performs different sequences of rotations around it's core.
The work is currently on display in a former flower shop at the Marktstraat 1b in Apeldoorn (NL).
Grid Velocity displays a grid which moves infinitely, and becomes irregular over time due to an update error.
A pico beamer is used to project on the eyelids of the visitor.
Spatial Current consists of eight pulse streams which are controlled by one computer. Each stream is made audible through one speaker which is placed in one of the eight corners of the room. At the centre of the ceiling is a projector which projects downwards on the eyelids of the visitor.
From this foundation, the performance takes the visitor into an AV river for 5 minutes in which the current undergoes multiple speed and rhythmical variations.
Neon Signs is an installation consisting of reused neon lights. Within the historical context of the neon sign, the work represents the rise and fall of the Golden Age of Capitalism.
The work aims for multiple layers of neon signs covering each other, scattered over the ceiling. Next to light, the work creates an accumulation of warmth and sound. The signs turn on and off in a composition, in which the light is too bright, the temperature too high and the sound too loud. Visitors perceive the installation by lying down on the floor or on sun loungers, to relax and reflect simultaneously.
Escape is a room installation that immerses a visitor through four walls of projections, transforming the room into a virtual elevator, vertically transporting spectators through an unlimited sequence of generative landscapes.
A study on the definition of the digital landscape, in which is explored what elements constitute a landscape and which qualities are required for immersion.
The project consists of multiple layers: static, dynamic, and interactive. Based on a general composed narrative with a cycle length of five minutes, landscapes are generated, color ranges shifted, special effect probabilities set and generative soundscapes blended on top of a precomposed soundtrack. Next to this, the visitor is given control over the navigation of the lift.
Escape has been presented at TodaysArt 2011, The Hague, The Netherlands, and Go Short Festival 2012, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
Typographic Gun explores the subjective potential of the written medium. The library becomes the epicenter of a conflict between two opposing texts, opinions or ideals.
The subjectivity is hidden behind interpolating typography, alternating at 5 to 20Hz, melting the two channels together, but at the same time generating the conflict by means of anti colors and after image.
Any spectator can choose to block out any of the information streams by means of a color filter. And every book that has been loaded into the system produces its own unique soundtrack, converting sentences to a rhythm of micro tonal sound that add to the conflict experience.
Thomas, Tiemen and I were invited to create the visuals to a party hosted by Studio K & Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. DJ's were provided by the Stedelijk (who knew a museum has dj's?) and we had decided upon creating sets on the fly by means of combining self written processing sketches & imagery.
No vj-software or whatsoever, just two video mixers to make smooth transitions.
