Colleagues at VeeJays.com have always had a warm friendship with Peter Rubin as he left him a part of his VHS material. Veejays. com joined forces with Eye film institute to archive his work. At the end of this project, I shall give a VJ performance with VHS alongside my dearest VJ VISH and the VJ Jedi Daan Nolen.

Premiere VJ SCULPTURE, De Marktkantine,  ADE 2016

Exited to premier my Sculpture as a medium for VeeJaying during ADE weekend.

I consider light as energy rather than static mass and therefore as a medium. Unlike other media such as text, video or even speech, the notions of light, sound and thought carry no other medium within them. Within this project I am exploring the sculpture as material for VJing. For this object I work with the basic notion of light that travels trough space and is intersected by physical material where after it is reflected, absorbed transformed or intensified.

 Van Gogh Musem exhibits ANIMA, november 7, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

Very happy to announce my work ANIMA will be exhibited at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam

ANIMA is a series that explores the nature of living things. The installation investigates how we emotionally relate to a digital being. In order to better understand this relationship we created ANIMA: a spherical digital entity that communicates with us by interpreting our body movements and sounds. A generative being that comes to life through interaction. Like with any being, we establish a relationship with it, conscious or subconscious, intended or unintentional. In its generative audiovisual behaviour it portrays its character, and creates the illusion of being sensory.

ANIMA is a work I made together with media artist and composer Nick Verstand and is made in close collaboration with onformative studio for genartive design (Berlin), audio design by Geert Schaap, artificial intelligence design by Dirk Broenink and is sponsored by Pufferfish  spherical display (Edinburgh), Microsoft and Beamsystems (NL)

CENTRAL EUROPE VOODOO SUITE TOUR WITH MY BABY, 28 nov. 2 dec, A38 – Budapest,  Chapeau Rouge Club – Prague

Sun city II theatre play/scenography, 20 november, Pick-Up Club NSDM terrain, Amsterdam

“We’re not living in a time of change, but a change of time” We find ourselves on the edge of a shift of paradigms. From a vertical, central and segregated society towards a horizontal, decentralized networked society. Old systems are broken down and new ones are rebuilt. Old values disappear and new values emerge. This comes with pain, fear and loss, but also with hope, faith and trust. A fragment from Jan Rotmans book “In het oog van de orkaan” (In the eye of the hurricane) which is the starting point of an audio-visual theatre play: A collaboration between musicians Ivo Schot and Frank van Kasteren, director Jeek ten Velden and scenography by Frouke ten Velden. The piece is commissioned by Jan Rotmans and KSI. After a week of locking ourselves up in a smoky repetition space at Amsterdam’s NDSM shipyards we’ll present the preview of what will become a touring music-theatre play: stay tuned
