This is what people who know me, think about me. When I asked them to do so…
I am not an “average” artist. Sometimes I don’t make art for weeks/months/years. And then, when the circumstances are right, I produce.
And here it is.
For TEC ART I made two photographic works and used an abandoned factory, the props I dreamed about, the intergalactic theme I love, the people I wanted to work with and ME.

“When Napalm Death developed a one-attack music that only lasted a second, hardcore punk music was completed as an explosive form of art.
In other words, it was now able to differentiate all kinds of hardcore punk songs as one-attack music. In this format, the important thing to consider is the number of the shots and the length.
For instance, the method of repetitively taking one-attacks created the genre, grind core. And taking longer shots one after the other yielded the genre of sludge core.
Explosions with all kinds of duration and number were created worldwide. It’s a hardcore carpet bomb to the world! And nobody cared that we were copying other people.
So, this kind of music is not based on originality of individuals. Instead, it is a principle of playing explosive music through punks around the world. This is true formalism!
But nobody says out loud that hardcore is a formalistic art, nor do they try to find the ultimate form of it. I guess music that is easy to identify as music is music, and the same goes for art.
Then who can change this? Who will? I will!”
De bestemde esoterische klankkleur die Ramazan schept in zijn beeld dwingt ons tot een extensieve ontdekking van deze schemerige universums. De wonderlijke deformatie van grootte, materiaal en structuur bevragen onze positie over de eigen relatie tot de schaal van het subject en de schaal van onszelf. De kristallijne en abstracte geometrie van zijn werk maakt zich los van het beeld zelf, maar is ook nog geen onderdeel van onze fysieke realiteit. In deze “tussen realiteit” openbaart zich het werkelijke thema van het werk. Het gaat er immers niet om in welke schaal of in welke dimensie je dit werk ervaart (de extensieve ervaring), het gaat er om hoe en met welke intensiteit je deze fenomenen ondergaat (de intensieve ervaring).
Selfie Related Deaths 2014-2016
Examples of a continuing series of memorialising selfie related deaths. The images are implemented in a 400 cm x 240 cm memorial shroud, and around each one a memorial shirt as well as roadside memorials for selfie related deaths are designed which will be launched in September 2016.
S†ëfan Schäfer is a designer and researcher based in Amsterdam. His research deals with the conversion of images from representative objects to participative subjects. This includes modes of image production and distribution as well as occuring consequences and shifts of meaning while traversing divers media. At this moment Schäfer is investigating the “compensation of physical absence with virtual presence“ and vice versa.
Together with Dr. Emily West Schäfer is co-foudner of digitalnecropolis.net, an ongoing research on the topic of digital death and digital afterlife. Their book „I am become digital death, the destroyer of worlds“ had been published in Oct 2016 and was exhibited at the Dutch Design Week 2016 in Eindhoven.

Artificial intelligence is coming and it will change everything. Unfortunately, People just don’t seem to grasp the potential consequences of a super intelligent computer program. By letting people encounter something terrifyingly new, we hope to shake the foundations of this complacency. Harper will react to you, inspire you, and maybe even scare you.

Marco Broeders (1970) has studied Architectural Design at the AKV St.Joost Breda. Currently he is employed primarily as a spatial designer and constructer of all-terrain-objects, scenic interiors, theatrical environments and tactile analogue light works.
Humor and alienation, a fair (re)use of materials and design have made the main features in his work. His designs are inviting, always have a recognizable starting point, but put the user at a time on the wrong track.
Based in Rotterdam his studio Co2RO provides specialist lighting using light-emitting diodes and analogue beamers. Transforming small objects or big buildings with multi-layered imagery using projectors and specially designed rotating discs and machinery by 360º. Projected images crawl along and in each other and create interfering patterns and abstract story lines.
For Tecart he build a location specific installation. A reverse slide of visions.
