Mediafestival Hoofddorp

Web Spaces was part of the Mediafestival exhibition at Galerie De Meerse in Hoofddorp. It’s the same installation I showed at TEC ART in Rotterdam. But this time, there were a lot of young visitors! Almost 1100 kids from primary and secondary schools in the region have had a tour through the exhibition, led by guides from the Rijksmuseum. They were told about the work, the artists and their intentions. Additionally there were activities for the young visitors, related to the artworks. For example the activity in relation to my golden Web Space was for each kid to make a…

New Manhattan/The Web Space Never Sleeps

With your help, I’m going to build New Manhattan: one big artwork that consists of several small artworks. It is a 3D-printed scale model of a fictional city based on the architecture of 100 web pages. And at the same time it’s a moment to pause at our digitized society that we have designed ourselves.

Check out the video and project page at Voordekunst. They are in Dutch only, so you may have to use a bit of Google Translate.

I hope you’ll claim your spot in New Manhattan!

A Virtual Village in Friesland

Kunstroute Open Stal is a tradition that’s been going on for decades. Every year the villagers organise an exhibition which shows artworks scattered throughout the small but lovely village of Oldeberkoop in Friesland. The people who live in Oldeberkoop know their village very well. But I’m happy I was able to provide them a new perspective on their village. Especially for this years edition, which has the theme of the New World, I made an interactive installation with three screens which show an alternate reality of the village. In the installation you visit the virtual buildings in Oldeberkoop: Web Spaces. This architecture…

TEC ART @ Rotterdam Art Week

At the TEC ART exhibition, during Rotterdam Art Week, you could once again explore the world of Web Spaces! I had my dual-screen interactive installation up and running, where webpages are transformed into 3D ‘buildings’ in real time. As well as 3D prints of worlds most valuable webpage’s, printed in precious metals. I also got some nice compliments during the show. One of them was the following: “At the same time, you learn something.” I was glad to hear that, because I try to…

RESTRUCTIONS @ SIGN

Web Spaces – Parallel City Dual-channel video projection
Duration: 7m48s
Site specific (no pun intended) work for the Re-structions exhibition at SIGN, Groningen.

In my interactive installation of Web Spaces, which was also exhibited during Re-structions, you visit one isolated Web Space at a time. These are mostly Web Spaces from internationally well known websites. The Web Space is surrounded by darkness.But as you may already know, the Web Spaces project is exploring the relation between the physical and digital world. At Re-structions I’ve taken the next step in blurring the line between these worlds. Instead of taking the most popular…

Panarchy and Feedback Loops

I’ve been commissioned to do an artistic exploration of Panarchy. What’s panarchy? What did I make? Why me? I’ll answer these questions in this post and show the results of this project! Over a year ago, I accidentally created a feedback loop when I was messing around with screen sharing software. I recorded the full screen of the computer, and showed this recording again in full screen on the same computer. I applied the result, a visual feedback loop, as part of a reflection session during my master studies. In some of the video’s in this post you can see images…

Already from the start, during the Graduation Show, and at the Young Sprouts exhibition, art collectors expressed interest in acquiring the Web Space of Wikipedia. I’m proud to announce that since last month it has joined many other artworks in the very diverse collection of Mr. Verberg!
