Automated scriptures

The installation is made to generate a new holy scripture and was displayed at Dat Wat We Nog Niet Wisten. It uses a neural network trained on the Bible and Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. The visitors where also asked to add their own believe to the database from which the neural network learns.   A continuation of this work was …

Sound, a tributary of Touch

Synthesis: “The combination of components or elements to form a connected whole.” In western society we base the majority of our communication on linguistics. We rarely use physical interaction as a way of communicating, except with those closest to us. Amongst strangers, and often even friends and family, we tend to reserve our personal bubble and limit our physical interaction; …

Transitions

Transitions is an experience that depicts my bridge into the auditory realm. It makes use of the transitional spaces within the structure of the building to tell a story about connections, passages, phases and transformations. It makes use of modular poetry and interactive technology to create a unique experience for every visitor. It is a Gesamtkunstwerk that encapsulates the rest …

Reaume – A Virtual Reality Installation.

Reaume is a virtual reality installation, in which the visitor can explore art in a different setting than one would in a museum or public space.

By doing so, we explore the future of exhibition …

Skeletons of castles

After coming back from my residency in Croatia I went straight on to create this sound sculpture. I am writing a book about my experience abroad. A book that finds itself in-between prose and poetry. This sculpture is a way …

Waterfilter

We build a waterfilter to turn the water inside the canals of Rotterdam to drinkable water. This project aims to visualise and explain the filtration process of canal water. The clean water was used to make filter coffee and mint tea. It became a intrinsic part of the festive opening of the exhibition. Will the fire kept the visitors warm and …

Sharretation

An installation made in Vilnius. The subject matter is deforestation. The installation includes a hanging tree-trunk with pieces of glass sticking out.There is a projection on the trunk and the wall behind it of a video I made. The main theme here is shatters and painful but aesthetics destruction.

Fluds

This piece revolves around the rising of the sea level, it was made in Vilnius and works together with Sharetations. It uses the dropping of water from a bucket to a piece of glass into a ceramics bowl to produce a soothing sound of water droplets. It is amplified by an Piezo contact microphone. This sound stays smooth until the …

When light breaks

This piece was an interactive time-machine that made use of delayed light. The installation traps and delays light, and thus time. The installation consists of a loop, where the webcam inside would capture light and send it to a computer, which would send it back out to the beamer with a slight delay. It would then be beamed through the …
