Reaume

Reaume is a virtual reality installation , in which the visitor can explore art in a different setting than one would in a museum or public space. The realm you enter is a surrealistic one, it challenges the conventional ideas of the white cube space and makes art available on a virtual plane. By doing so, we explore the future of exhibition spaces. Established artist are put side by side with students and upcoming artist. The virtual sculpture garden, is essentially an open sourced exhibition space.

ViaOral

Neopopdada art collective ViaOral develops projects, concepts and environments related to urgent social, political and extra terrestrial issues, within the shifting context of contemporary art and modern art history.

The Cyborg Art Collective

The Ultimate Exhibition

The Cyborg Art Collective strives for art that bridges the gap between science/philosophy and the general culture. Focusing on digital technologies we research subjects of automation of creativity, virtual reality, and autonomy of the computer programs. Questioning the technology’s actorship and with it, its control over, and influence on our understanding of the world. The Cyborg Art Collective plays within this digital domain to create art that in its decision making is based on different layers of rules and conventions. We also provide specific ways of interacting with our work, and its virtual domain, to blur the lines between the control of the user and the program.

The Cyborg Art Collectives aim is not to simply make artworks about the subject matter, rather we strive to generate knowledge and provide insights. Simultaneously working with the digital technologies, and letting it work for us. Revealing the possibilities and limits of this systematic logic that can be found in all these devices.

The Cyborg Art Collective beliefs when it comes to actorship, there is not a hard line between the technology and the user. We state that it’s an interlinked system that works between both entities. In art, we try to create a new form of art practise that generates valuable knowledge and inside in our everyday lives!

Citadels Series

Citadels is an ongoing project by dutch artist Matthijs Munnik, investigating the nature of flickering light and its effect on perception.

In his immersive installations, brightly-colored stroboscopic fields light out completely white spaces. On entering the installation the visitor’s field of view becomes filled with intricate patterns, geometric shapes and imaginary colors, strong hallucinations filling every inch of space.

Using carefully chosen combinations of colors and flicker frequencies, light interferes with the visual cortex of the audience. The images and patterns the audience see are completely created within their own brain.

The lights are combined with sound in mirroring frequencies and harmonics, moving in an ambisonic soundfield.

Speculative Capital

Machines are outing us. As some time ago happened to horses after the invention of the steam engine, humans are becoming obsolete to perform mechanical labor, soon, with the advance of artificial intelligence, it will also affect our possibilities to be useful workers performing intellectual labor. To cope with a labor market dominated by machines we must re-adapt the position of humans in society. New technologies allow us to build “a postcapitalist and post-work platform upon which multiple ways of living could emerge and flourish.“

Freerk Wieringa

Androïde/Humanoïde

Het werkbestaat uit twee installaties, die op twee verschillende locaties zijn opgesteld. De eerste installatie is een door elektromotoren gestuurde robot (de avatar). De tweede installatie is een exoskelet dat gedragen kan worden door een persoon (de bestuurder).

Wanneer de bestuurder beweegt, beweegt het exoskelet en worden zijn bewegingen direct gekopieerd door de avatar. De bestuurder kijkt door een head-mounted display uitgerust met head tracking, waardoor zijn hoofdbewegingen het ‘hoofd’ van de avatar besturen.

De head-mounted display maakt dat hij als het ware door de ogen van de avatar kijkt: als de bestuurder naar beneden kijkt, ziet hij mechanische benen; als hij zijn arm naar voren beweegt ziet hij een mechanische arm. De bestuurder kan praten met mensen die bij de avatar staan, hij kan ze aanraken en met ze communiceren door middel van bewegingen.

Error Instruments

Creative-Synth-Art-Noise-Music

Is it a shop? Is it a sound art installation? Is it a mini-club?

Paul Tas’ aka Error Instruments’ display is a special experience at TEC ART.

Performers and producers of alternative electronic music worldwide appreciate the hand made synths of this friendly Dutch builder. Paul Tas himself likes to give a presentation of his goods and he conjures up the strangest sounds from equally strange-looking boxes. The Error Instruments stand is a favorite hang out at any festival.

A new touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the inflated moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.

The moon can be presented both as a venue for lunar inspired events to be held beneath it, but also as an installation artwork in its own right.

Background

From the beginning of human history, the moon has acted as a ‘cultural mirror’ to our beliefs, understanding and ways of seeing. Over the centuries, the moon has been interpreted as a god and as a planet. It has been used as a timekeeper, calendar and to aid night-time navigation. Throughout history the moon has inspired artists, poets, writers and musicians the world over. Different cultures around the world have their own historical, cultural and religious relationships to the moon.

In more recent history, the moon has been a site for ongoing scientific exploration. The far side of the moon cannot be seen from the earth, and was only seen for the first time by scientists in 1959. For most people this will be a unique opportunity for the public to see it in exquisite detail and in three dimensions.

Museum of the Moon allows us to observe and contemplate cultural similarities and differences around the world, and consider the latest moon science. Depending on where the artwork is presented, its meaning and interpretation will shift. Through local research carried out by Luke Jerram at each location of the artwork, new stories and meanings will be collected and compared from one presentation to the next.
