I’ve made a little video mapping browser extension! It’s simple. Aim your beamer at a rectangular surface and drag 4 corners to precisely map your video onto the target surface. But it’s also advanced. With it you can correct the perspective of the video source too. Just choose any region on the source video, which is distorted due to perspective but is supposed to be rectangular, and Mappertje will set it straight 🙂 A bit like the Perspective Warp tool in Photoshop.Continue reading Mappertje
Video conferencing allows people to work together, remotely. It’s super useful. But if you want to do more with the received video, for example if you want to record or broadcast it, then the user interface of these conferencing apps will get in the way. With my Chrome extension, you can free these videos from the user interface that holds them.Continue reading Pop-out Video conferencing extension
I went to Turku, Finland to be part of a show in New York City organised by the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art from South Korea. That’s right! I participated in Art Teleported, the art show and conference for nomadic artists, by teaming up with the Videokaffe collective. That’s a whole lot of name dropping, so let’s back up for a second.Continue reading Art Teleported
Whooho I’ve been awarded the Reisma Van den Burg Grant! This grant is named after the Frisian painter Cor Reisma (1902-1962) and is offered by his family. The biennial stipend is intended to give recent graduates from the Minerva Art Academy an opportunity to further develop their work through an (inter)national project.Continue reading Reisma Van den Burg Grant
The Groningen based projectspace SIGN invited me to make new work and show it at the Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm. A nice opportunity to see this highly digitised society. Research from the European Commission shows the Swedish people use the internet more than citizens from other countries. So, they are familiar with web pages. But I wanted to give them a new perspective on the seemingly familiar concept of web pages: web pages as three-dimensional buildings.

Web Choreographies is a live coding performance in the web browser by Joana Chicau and Jip de Beer. Together they co-choreograph the path of the performance, engaging in various visual displays, glitches and interactions between HTML elements and web architectures.

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.Continue reading New Manhattan: The Opening
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.Continue reading Invitation to the opening of New Manhattan
On Sunday November 4th you can find me at the Internet Yami-Ichi in Utrecht, where I’ll enthuse visitors for my New Manhattan project and have people ‘beta-test’ the Trump Tweet Tower. At the offline internet market hosted by TivoliVredenburg you’ll find all kinds of internet inspired art and design.
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.
Kunstroute Open Stal is a tradition that’s been going on for decades. Every year the villagers organise an exhibition which shows artworks scattered throughout the small but lovely village of Oldeberkoop in Friesland. The people who live in Oldeberkoop know their village very well. But I’m happy I was able to provide them a new perspective on their village.
