ISEA2013 – June 2013

I really looked forward to going to the 2013 ISEA edition.  My abstract was accepted, and this event in Sydney June 2013 would probably be another milestone in my current PhD trajectory. Alas, I had to – last minute – cancel my trip and my participation in the conference. Well, anyway the work and time invested in preparing my presentation is not lost and an important step in the evolution of my PhD. My abstract, accepted for the topic or subtheme Histories and Futures of Electronic Art: Anamorphosis. A mystery in two acts or a strategy for embodied perception? Keywords:…


The festival SURROUND! is a mix of concerts and installations where the listener is surrounded by sound and becomes part of the musical interaction. From Wednesday November 7 till Sunday November 11 @ Concertgebouw Brugge. DIORAMATIZED #02, part of my PhD research, is one of the installations in this festival.

I’m curious how the installation is perceived by visitors of the festival, a much more pronounced group I’m sure. Sunday November 11 the festival wraps up with a happening:…

Premiere MULTIPLE voice/vision @ AMUZ – 1 oct 2011

About a month ago MULTIPLE voice/vision – BACH had its premiere at the concerthall of AMUZ in Antwerp. From MULTIPLE voice/vision -BACH premiere 1 oktober 2011 Through the use of anamorphosis, and especially through the multiple use of anamorphosis, I challenge the traditional audience-screen configuration. On top of that, the sheer size of the installation – 10.40 meters in diameter – demands for activity of the observer. Instead of a viewer immobilized in an Albertian tradition of static one-point perspective representation, the observer becomes an active participant, whose full sensorium of vision, hearing, feeling, walking … is called upon.

From installation view DIORAMATIZED #02 @ M – Museum Leuven In the publication accompanying the exhibition – Reflecties # 14: Divine Sounds – Pieter Mannaerts describes the installation as follows: The centre of the exhibition is not only these manuscripts, but the audible music itself. Visitors can hear the music they are looking at, and…

DIORAMATIZED @ Huis van de Polyfonie

In february I installed DIORAMATIZED  at Huis van de Polyfonie in Leuven. It is for a short working period – probably till the end of march – preparing amongst others the content of DIORAMATIZED #02 for an exhibition in M Leuven september/october/november this year. This time lapse video documents the installation process of the labo setup @ Huis van de Polyfonie:
