Web Spaces – 3D Printed Web Pages

Web Spaces – 3D Printed Web Pages is a project I’ve been working on during the Summer Sessions 2016 residency. There’s a nice article about it on the V2_ webpage which introduces the project like this: Jip de Beer’s Web Spaces is an ongoing investigation into the structure of web pages. How can three dimensional beings, like you and me, explore the virtual landscape of web pages? By rendering the building blocks of a web page in three dimensions, the architecture beneath its surface is revealed. You can read the full article on the V2_ website. This project is produced as part…

Ads and Motion Detection

My upcoming interactive light projection for the Museum Square in Drachten will feature motion detection and Google Ads! The concept is inspired by my previous work, AdSense Memory. Flying Ads Animation by Jip de Beer

Trying out projector @ Museumplein Drachten

I’ve been asked by Museum Dr8888 to make an interactive light installation for the Museumplein in Drachten. It will run every evening, for three months, starting mid October. Yesterday evening I started to experiment with what’s available: a 4x5m floor projection, a top mounted camera and a computer running AdVis 2.1 software. Unfortunately AdVis, which is a software to make interactive projections with, wouldn’t recognize the people walking in the projection area. Also, with AdVis you can only tweak some very simple, ready-made, interactive projections. So I don’t think I’m going to be using that… Jip de Beer trying out the projector for his upcoming light…

New Blog: MADtech.me

From now on, I’ll be posting my full blog posts on my new blog: MADtech.me. Together with fellow MADtech master students we’ll be updating the new blog with our personal process, final works, exhibitions etc., all related to the field of Media, Art, Design and Technology.

I can recommend you to check it out in the coming months, because there will be regular updates from a variety of interesting artists 🙂 If you’re just interested in my personal work, you can of course continue to follow this blog (I’ll announce new posts here as well) or you can follow my personal page on MADtech.me.

AdSense Memory [Serious Game]

“You’ve got a memory, but so does the Internet! If you’re using an ad blocker than this game is probably not for you. If you aren’t, then AdSense Memory will raise your adwareness!”

I’ve developed this game to put ads front and center. Instead of stuff you’d rather ignore, in AdSense Memory the advertisements themselves are in the spotlight. The ads are the content.

Interested in my critical reflection on online advertising? Curious what advertisements Google deems appropriate for you? Or just want to play a memory game? Click here.

Vegan Day

Because it may be difficult (initially) to become vegan, I’ve made this iCal feed you can subscribe to. It’s called Vegan Day and it will add one ‘whole day event’ to your calendar for which it says “Today it is Vegan Day”. Just say to yourself that you’ll be vegan on Vegan Day and become vegan one day at a time 🙂

I’ve watched the Cowspiracy documentary in which they say: “Not eating meat for one day, just means that you’re doing something bad 6 days of the week instead of 7”. Or something similar to that anyway. Vegan Day takes the good from eating vegan for just one day, and takes out the hard part of doing it every day. Just wake up and look on your calendar. You’ll realize that today is a vegan day, without it being overwhelming. It’s just for today. The next days will go the same…
