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…

Solid Metal Web Spaces – Commissioned by MU

Wow, I forgot to mention in my previous post that MU has given me the opportunity to create two new Web Spaces in solid metal: Google.com and YouTube.com. Especially for the Materialising the Internet exhibition! They weigh about 1KG each and are printed with steel powder infused with bronze. The weight really adds to the experience of holding and touching the objects. What a shame they’re behind plexiglas! Haha. It’s always a challenge to create Web Spaces – 3D printed Web Pages. The architecture of web pages isn’t meant to exist in the physical world. So when materialising these complex structures,…

Materialising the Internet

I’m really proud to have been part of the exhibition Materialising the Internet curated by Nadine Roestenburg & Angelique Spaninks at MU artspace in Eindhoven. From October 6 to November 12 and during the Dutch Design Week my work was displayed in a darkened room. A spotlight made my 3D printed Web Spaces in precious metal shine, and the huge cinema projector made it seem as if you could really enter the world of Web Spaces.

Winner SBK Young Sprouts Award

Quoting my girlfriend: “It’s quite a an honour that you’ve won this award, because there’s a lot of impressive work in this exhibition! And I agree with that. The SBK Sprouts Young Talents 2017 exhibition is a diverse and interesting selection of 50 graduates from the Dutch art academies. What set me apart in this show according to the jury is the fact that I’m showing a lot, using different media: print, 3D print, screen based interactive installation and text. This is to ensure the whole story and research behind Web Spaces comes across. To make my world more accessible for the audience.…

Web Spaces @ Ars Electronica & GOGBOT, soon exhibited in a gallery near you!

This September I’ve exhibited Web Spaces internationally at Ars Electronica. Due to insurance reasons I wasn’t able to exhibit the precious metal Web Space of Google or Facebook, but I did show some colourful PLA prints. During the festival I’ve also seen quite some people successfully and enthusiastically interact with the Web Spaces interactive installation. I’m always glad when people are able to overcome the initial obstacle of the gamepad, because not everyone is familiar with this interface. I also had my interactive installation up and running at the GOGBOT festival because I received a nomination for the BLINK Youngblood Award. Unfortunately…

Web Spaces @ Work in Progress Expo

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.
