[Announcement] First public presentation of ‘De Meeuwen van Tinbergen’ at Uitfeest Utrecht 2010

On sep­tem­ber 12, a first pub­lic pre­sen­ta­tion will be held of my upcom­ing project ‘De Meeuwen van Tin­ber­gen’ dur­ing Uit­feest Utrecht 2010, the start of the cul­tur­al sea­son in Utrecht. 

Once every hour, on the city hall square, Cow­boy by Nacht will present a ‘con­cert for seag­ulls’, pre­sent­ed through an 8‑channel sur­round sound instal­la­tion, placed around the square. In between these short inter­ven­tions (inspired by Hitch­cock­’s “The Birds”), we will invite the audi­ence to take part in a lit­tle video-inter­view, while they get a spe­cial treat­ment by a make-up artist.

More on this project (which is sched­uled for sum­mer 2011) in future posts, for now, check the project-blog (in dutch), or the back of the fly­er below.

‘Gidsenproject’ at Oerol 2010

I was invit­ed to take part in the ‘Gid­sen­pro­ject’ of this year’s Oerol Fes­ti­val. More info can be found here (in Dutch).

I also was invit­ed by Dutch tele­vi­sion chan­nel AVRO, to review two small projects at the fes­ti­val. The results can be seen below:

Nomination for BNG WorkSpace Project Prize 2010

Close Encounter of the First Kind SketchI got nom­i­nat­ed for the BNG Work­Space Project Prize 2010, orga­nized by Filmhuis Den Haag / ZAAL5, with a project pro­pos­al for an inter­ac­tive light instal­la­tion named ‘A Close Encounter of The First Kind’ (for which i’m still seek­ing funding).

WORKSPACE is the annu­al project com­pe­ti­tion through which ZAAL5 seeks out tal­ent­ed film­mak­ers and artists work­ing with film, new (inter­ac­tive) media, video instal­la­tions, per­for­mance and visu­als. ZAAL5 is the in-house project space for media arts at Filmhuis Den Haag. This mul­ti­func­tion­al room is ded­i­cat­ed to pro­grammes and projects using mov­ing images that are not dis­played in reg­u­lar film halls.

I was one of the 5 select­ed artists (out of 45 appli­cants) that had to pitch his or her project pro­pos­al on the 25th of april 2010, in front of a pro­fes­sion­al jury, to win one of the two avail­able prizes of € 9000,- for the real­iza­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion of the project.
