(The English Edition)

This is no mistake: there is something between us. Definitely. It is unavoidable. It is everywhere. The days when technics were a help to the people are over. There are pieces of hardware craftily patched together to make the users’ daily chores easier, their lives better. They are littered just about everywhere from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, from Tai Pei to Timbuktu, a huge mass of man made things, tools, instruments, mechanisms each one endowed with its own precise logic, point and functionality. They have accumulated in time, used, discarded, recycled, invented and reinvented until they have grown to end up as an aggregated, compact, hard crust, shell or husk around the soft, still juicy and frail core of the humanity that has designed and conceived them and built them to serve a specific purpose, to make work easier, secure the rest or the travel more comfort and faster a pace.

To the Work in Progress exhibition by Platform Minerva I’ve contributed Web Spaces, a series of 3D printed webpages in combination with Architectural Explorations, a dual-screen interactive installation. On the walls I’ve presented two additional projection works, of which one is also interactive.

The goal here is to get everything I’ve been working on recently out of my studio. I put it all into one room, to get an overview and reflect on the works.
Glitch and mutation are clearly new elements I’ve been experimenting with.
This quick video I’ve put together focuses on the elements related to the Web Spaces project I’m working on.

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…

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

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…
