Autonomous Robots

Samenwerkingsproject. Breingestuurde robot-legers zijn geen fantasie meer. Iedereen kan tegenwoordig wapens fabriceren met behulp van off-the-shelf technologie. In 2017 werkte ik samen met Freerk Wieringa, Hack42 Arnhem, Hackerspace Nijmegen en IRS Robotics. Voor Manifestations deze speciaal ontwikkelde 3 meter hoge robots, waarbij bezoekers worden aangesloten op breinscanners en zodat zij de machinegeweer-dragende robots aansturen met hun hersengolven.




Manifestations 2018




Manifestations 2018: Is technology your ideal boyfriend or a dominant creep?

From seductive and challenging, vulnerable or rather a bit bossy, and from caring to clumsy: during the DDW Manifestations will show the most human side of technology.

The Veemgebouw in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, will be the centre point of art, design and innovative technology from October 20th to 28th. Technological innovations sometimes fit like a glove, but can also be confrontational, problematic or unreliable. And we as humans are in turn shaped by all those new technologies.

That is something to reflect on for a moment, according to curator Viola van Alphen. “Nicer, more human technology is in all our interests – innovations that everyone benefits from, young or old, male or female, rich or poor.” She selected works from over 50 mostly young, recently graduated artists who shine a light the exciting interaction between human beings and technology in surprising ways. Discover a collection of designer tongues for instance that let you speak all the languages in the world, clothes that grow themselves from natural crystals, a comfort-bot, the handbag of the future, clothing that gives you an extra sense, teasing Artificial Intelligence and much more ‘unbelievable’ technological reality.

After visiting Yosemite park, Grand Canyon, I randomly walked through forests.. discovering this abandoned Crystal Meth Lab. Even holding a teddy bear, a child must have lived here.
Arriving for my next trip to the US, I got banned, ESTA withdrawn, no reason given…

In 2011, GOGBOT’s theme was The Googlization of Everything. I guided a group of students at Creative Technology of University of Twente to Designing your Baby using Google Birth: pay more and get more IQ or EQ. The baby moved when people pull the sliders.

The topic of Designer Baby was not so well-known at that time.

DIY and grow your own food at home.. made from.. YOU! In Vitro Meat (lab grown meat) is easy to do at home. Grow your own cells, food where you can have no allergies for, self sustainable.
DIY biohacking video is coming up!



A very old one, but one I still very love:

Car-burnings in the banlieues in Paris, followed by car-burnings in Amsterdam West. The mosques were over-full, sometimes 300 people on the street. The Amsterdam Squat movement helped the Muslims and squatted for them an empty bank-building, which was built over the A10 ring-highway, connecting the “rich” Amsterdam centre with the “banlieues” in West.
“Hacking the Area”, even projecting on the highway street-signs outside.

By several famous artists, multimedia, artists in the area, children, art academy students (Rietveld).
