Interactive * Art *

I believe in new forms of art in which interaction plays a central role in including the viewer in the scenery, allowing them to participate in the action and to live, for a fleeting moment, the events of another space and time and a brief bonding with its protagonists. I love seeing information, in its broadest meaning, come alive; be it emotions, facts, concepts or surreal creations. I explore all art between the hand drawn sign and the algorithmic creations with a focus on the human/computer relationships and their artistic use.

Let It Bee is my first artwork in collaboration with Priveekollektie which I produced with the intention to mix a playful moment with a serious message about the misunderstood value of bees. Read more…

Funnily, when I am coding algorithms, I can’t stay away from drawing, especially in those thinking gaps; and when I am drawing and sketching ideas, I can’t stay away from thinking in code and math. At some point I must surrender and let the two streams meet somewhere in the middle. I suppose many people work the same way but I’m not sure many are aware.

* Interactive is what reacts to an external activity in a dialogue made in mutual awareness.
* Art is skills applied to exalt a feeling, spark a reaction and communicate. Art is a conductor that connects the viewer with the unreachable. Art is often about beauty but can also be awful, cruel, dangerous. Art can be subtle, hidden in the fabric of creations that have nothing to do with it.
