For over a year now, I’ve been emailing IMDb users to let them know they’re involved in my Rapping.Reviews project. Every day I send 30 emails, which means I’ve sent approximately 10.000 emails during this time! Its rather time-consuming, but the conversations emerging from this endeavor are incredibly interesting to me and valuable to my ongoing research into topics like privacy, information overload and authorship. As part of a work presentation for tutors and fellow students, I decided to print out some of these email conversations. Herewith I show the scale of my undertaking and allow them a peek into my personal inbox. It just took me a couple…

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…

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…
