Presentation during the Graduation Show at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. The simulation is projected on a pyramid of reflective surfaces, creating a Pepper’s ghost effect of the digital entities.

In this small world, virtual inhabitants develop and evolve. This happens according to a process that is referred to as genetic algoritms. Like most things alive, the moving shapes have DNA that defines them, the amount of segments they’re made of and the proportions of these segments. Like our DNA, it mutates. The shapes multipy, grow and shrink over time. 

They develop without requiring any further input, all aesthetic choice have been made in advance and the content is generating itself. What is visible is derived from itself. By being granted this freedom the work has the opportunity to surprise with it’s emergent results.

Graduation cards have arrived! Come pick one up at the Graduation Show in two weeks! They’re a small promo/giveaway for the exhibition with a work of mine on the front and on the back it reads a small story that never fails to exite me:
"Now class, today we will talk about what you want to be when you grow up. Isn’t that fun?" The teacher looks around and spots the child, silent, apart from the others and deep in thought. "Jonny, why don’t you start?" she encourages him.
Jonny looks around, confused, his train of thought disrupted. He collects himself, and stares at the teacher with a steady eye. “I want to code demos,” he says, his words becoming stronger and more confidant as he speaks. “I want to write something that will change peoples perception of reality. I want them to walk away from the computer dazed, unsure of their footing and eyesight. I want to write something that will reach out of the screen and grab them, making heartbeats and breathing slow to almost a halt. I want to write something that, when it is finished, they are reluctant to leave, knowing that nothing they experience that day will be quite as real, as insightful, as good. I want to write demos.” 
Silence. The class and the teacher stare at Jonny, stunned. It is the teachers turn to be confused. Jonny blushes, feeling that something more is required. “Either that or I want to be a fireman.”

I recieved a draft of the graduation book; The Graduates 2014 [Leaving Traces]

"The Graduates" is an annual production of a hard cover coffee table book, magazine and eBook with work of thirty 
graduates of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy who are participating in this evolving and on going project.

The work of each participating graduate work can be viewed during the GRAD show at the academy or in the book, magazine and eBook, which will be published before September 2014 at Blurb and in Apple’s iBook store.

VERAHOVELING.ORG - website online

The graduating artist needs of course: a website!

Last week has been spent on realizing my website design. With the use of twitter bootstrap code I have now come pretty close and decided to publish the first draft. 

The more time I spend on it, the more room for improvement I see, adjustments will surely be made over time. Comments are always welcome, please use the form on the contact page ;)

The unexpected pleasant. Apparently some messed up light direction and physics miscommunication.

Maybe I am actually working on a glitch engine :)
