The goal here is to get everything I’ve been working on recently out of my studio. I put it all into one room, to get an overview and reflect on the works.
Web Spaces – 3D Printed Web Pages is a project I’ve been working on during the Summer Sessions 2016 residency. There’s a nice article about it on the V2_ webpage which introduces the project like this:
Jip de Beer’s Web Spaces is an ongoing investigation into the structure of web pages. How can three dimensional beings, like you and me, explore the virtual landscape of web pages? By rendering the building blocks of a web page in three dimensions, the architecture beneath its surface is revealed.
My upcoming interactive light projection for the Museum Square in Drachten will feature motion detection and Google Ads! The concept is inspired by my previous work, AdSense Memory.
I’ve been asked by Museum Dr8888 to make an interactive light installation for the Museumplein in Drachten. It will run every evening, for three months, starting mid October.
Yesterday evening I started to experiment with what’s available: a 4x5m floor projection, a top mounted camera and a computer running AdVis 2.1 software.

“You’ve got a memory, but so does the Internet! If you’re using an ad blocker than this game is probably not for you. If you aren’t, then AdSense Memory will raise your adwareness!” I’ve developed this game to put ads front and center. Instead of stuff you’d rather ignore, in AdSense Memory the advertisements themselves are in the … Continue reading AdSense Memory [Serious Game]
Because it may be difficult (initially) to become vegan, I’ve made this iCal feed you can subscribe to. It’s called Vegan Day and it will add one ‘whole day event’ to your calendar for which it says “Today it is Vegan Day”. Just say to yourself that you’ll be vegan on Vegan Day and become vegan one day at a time … Continue reading Vegan Day
I wasn’t incredibly happy with how my previous Google Chrome extension turned out, so on the same day I made Random Vegan Comic. With the plugin installed a random comic made by Vegan Sidekick will be added to about 20% of the pages you visit. It’s inserted right after the longest paragraph on the page, and … Continue reading Random Vegan Comic – Google Chrome Extension

I recently read an article about average faces which made me curious about moving average images. How would an average movie of a certain director look like? Or what would the average ‘I love you’ phrase in a movie look AND sound like? While I was thinking about this, somebody told me this has already … Continue reading Friends Season 1 – An Average Episode
The ‘Rap Karaoke in a Costume’ event was a big success! I hosted the event during the Open Day of the Minerva Art Academy on Saturday November 7th. Everybody was welcome to give a (lip sync) rap performance in the Green Screen Studio while simultaneously express a positive or a negative word to review a … Continue reading Rap Karaoke in a Costume @ Minerva Open Day
The YouTube Music Library is a good resource of free music. But when quickly trying to find a suitable track, I was slightly annoyed that the YouTube Music Library doesn’t allow you to scrub through the track. This forces me to listen to the whole intro. I wrote a small script that batch downloads all … Continue reading Batch Download Tracks from YouTube Music Library
