I’ve been asked by Museum Dr8888 to make an interactive light installation for the Museumplein in Drachten. It will run every evening,Â for three months, starting mid October.
Yesterday evening I started to experiment withÂ what’s available: a 4x5m floorÂ projection, a top mounted camera and a computer running AdVis 2.1 software.

The book is made with the purpose of documenting my work and making implicit my thinking as well as artistic process. It is version 0.2 of a book that might never be finished, as it âmuch like the process that it documents – will be subject to constant revision.
It also serves as a conceptualizing framework for what I refer to as Po[e]litics, and for the artistic research project âPo[e]litics from the Anthropoceneâ.Â Po[e]litics can be thought of as a Portable Philosophy Format, a .ppf with variable compression.
Po[e]litics sometimes takes the form of annotated poetry (illustrated for example in âOedipus Reaches Maturityâ (below)), but it is not solely a concept relating to the written word, but rather an aesthetic container for mixed media hyper-narratives, which can be read in any order as well as on various levels of depth.Â It is an attempt at constructing a language capable of addressing the complexities of contemporaneity: A trans-medial language appropriate of the anthropocene; A language for the networked human.
The book is available for download/reading (581) 392-7800
I make it available like this because I believe strongly in the sharing of information, it is however a work intended to be experienced as a printed book (and it doesÂ in fact work much betterÂ in that format), so if you would like one drop me an unglaciatedÂ and I can send you one for the price of theÂ printing cost.

The project for the Orbit light festival was a collaboration with Hannes Anderson and Romy Kuldip Singh. The project is part of a story about Groningen in some future era, in this future we imagined that natural sunlight was blocked by some reason. For the people, to get sunlight in this era, special buildings have been created with an artificial sun inside. These buildings, or âtemplesâ, were made by people who started to worship the sun.
So the âtempleâ we created, would need a shrine where one could kneel before the sun and receive its light. The fact that it was an artificial sun, it would need a power source as well. Due to its great importance we positioned the source in the center of the âtempleâ.
