Book cover of a book on bicultural identity Proud of all my students who graduated in the last few weeks! And happy to be the owner of this beautiful and limited edition book by one of them (a side project of a bigger project including a short documentary on bicultural identity).

The more convincingly lifelike AI-generated text, images, audio, and now video become, the more I am drawn to tactile, analog, lo-fi, and more human forms of expression.

Can ActivityPub save the internet? (David Pierce, The Verge, yesterday)

I’m hopeful, and would answer yes! Owning your own domain name should be the norm:

“But the advice you’ll hear from most people in this space is this: own your own domain. Don’t be john@/ or anna@/ Have a space that is yours, that belongs to you, a username and identity that can’t disappear just because a company goes out of business or sells to a megalomaniac.”

mmlmm work in progress

Momenteel werk ik aan een interactieve geluidswandeling /-fietstocht, als vervolg op de tentoonstelling mens maakt landschap maakt mens in Museum IJsselstein.

En goed nieuws! Onze gelijknamige videoinstallatie zal nog tot eind januari 2023 te zien zijn, nu als onderdeel van de nieuwe tentoonstelling Vensters.

Beide projecten zijn gebaseerd op diverse gesprekken die we met deelnemende kunstenaars en historici hadden over de menselijke omgang met cultuurlandschap in verleden, heden en toekomst. Met bijdragen van Niels Stomps, Wumen Ghua, Esther Polak, Ivar van Bekkum en historicus Arjan van ’t Riet. Binnenkort meer!

This week, I paid a visit to the beautiful Klok en Peel museum in Asten, a small museum with an extensive collection and library on the subject of bells. I was there for discussing a small commissioned job, but also for research on my upcoming soundscape project on city bells.

Finally received the custom made picture frame for a great birthday present I got from close friends: an abstract screen printing of a Redbreast Robin! (Part of BLOCBIRDS, an artproject by Studio 212 Fahrenheit.)

📚 According to my Goodreads list I already started reading A Distant Mirror years back, but the bookmark revealed I never got past the foreword. This time, I’m determined to read it all the way to the end, since it will be great research for my upcoming project on city bells.
