To the Work in Progress exhibition by Platform Minerva I’ve contributed Web Spaces, a series of 3D printed webpages in combination with Architectural Explorations, a dual-screen interactive installation.
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.
I found this very nice interface (a Philips color analyser) in a second hand market that I will use to house my fingerprintscanner, I like how it looks with the nobs and so and that it has this fat external thing connected like that but the sticking out part itself is not so nice so I made a new one.
