The Groningen based projectspace SIGN invited me to make new work and show it at the Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm. A nice opportunity to see this highly digitised society. Research from the European Commission shows the Swedish people use the internet more than citizens from other countries. So, they are familiar with web pages. But I wanted to give them a new perspective on the seemingly familiar concept of web pages: web pages as three-dimensional buildings.We are used to viewing web pages from above. With Web Spaces I transforms the underlying architecture of web pages into three-dimensional spaces. The…

Finally I was able to unveil New Manhattan! It will be exhibited until the 10th of February 2019 at Groninger Forum (Public Library), Oude Boteringestraat 18, 9712 GH Groningen. Approximately 70 curious people visited the opening and I really enjoyed watching them discover New Manhattan. Had some good talks, but the time flew by. I just wished I could have spoken with everybody. Before taking the cover off, I did say a few things about the project. Mainly to thank everybody involved. Thanks again! I also said that I’ve been investigating the architecture of webpages…

The crowdfunding campaign for New Manhattan was a succes! At the moment I’m still busy with 3D-printing the architecture of 60 webpages and finishing the interactive installation. But I’d already like to invite you for the opening of the exhibition. The opening takes place on Tuesday the 8th of January at 16:30 in Groningen. This is the best moment to come and see how the city turned out and meet all the participants. It’s also the moment, if all goes well, when the New Manhattan book will be launched.We’ll have some drinks and snacks and I’m looking forward to see…

Web Spaces – Parallel City Dual-channel video projection
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…

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…

Exhibition coming up at SIGN! My Web Spaces in relation to their physical surroundings and works of Nicholas Riis, Jelle Jongmans and Philippe R Wolthuis. Opening: Sunday November 26 at 16:00!
After working in my studio at the Frank Mohr institute for two years, it has become a little bit of a mess! But I really enjoyed the space, 24/7 access, the facilities and sharing it with fellow master students 🙂
At the moment I’m just rounding up for the opening of the Graduation Show 2017 (July 9 – July 13), for which I was able to give away 100 free train tickets! This makes our show that bit more accessible to people from across the Netherlands, for whom Groningen might be out of reach.
Hope to see you there!
