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 was part of the Mediafestival exhibition at Galerie De Meerse in Hoofddorp. It’s the same installation I showed at TEC ART in Rotterdam. But this time, there were a lot of young visitors! Almost 1100 kids from primary and secondary schools in the region have had a tour through the exhibition, led by guides from the Rijksmuseum. They were told about the work, the artists and their intentions. Additionally there were activities for the young visitors, related to the artworks. For example the activity in relation to my golden Web Space was for each kid to make a…

With your help, I’m going to build New Manhattan: one big artwork that consists of several small artworks. It is a 3D-printed scale model of a fictional city based on the architecture of 100 web pages. And at the same time it’s a moment to pause at our digitized society that we have designed ourselves.
Check out the video and project page at Voordekunst. They are in Dutch only, so you may have to use a bit of Google Translate.
I hope you’ll claim your spot in New Manhattan!

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…

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.
