I participated in a project at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York, where we did an invasion of the museum, placing objects in the virtual world, only visible when using a smartphone using the app LAYAR. This application shows the real world plus a virtual layer. Other participants were Banksy, Patrick Lichty, Bruce Sterling performed the opening speech, using an virtual Bruce and a live-feed from twitter.

What happens when Singularity takes over, will we all be controlled like pets?

CityOneMinutes Thailand Portrait

For the CityOneMinutes project of the Sandberg Institute, together with Frank Morssinkhof and Kees de Groot, I created a city portrait of Bangkok, about the Las Vegas-style neons in the prostitute go-go bars nightlife.

The censored version of the film can be seen here (made for HollandDoc and WorldExpo Shanghai 2011, click on CITIES-BANGKOK). Or see the uncensored version here (as long as it’s not removed, maybe disable your age filter):

One Minute of every hour of the day. Total: 24 minutes.


To prevent girls keeping a safe distance and to be able to film in the clubs, I dressed up as a man, which can be seen here.


This CityOneMinutes video / video co-curated best of PLANETART OneMinutes was shown at: Academisch Medisch Centrum /Amsterdam Museum / Centraal Museum, Utrecht / Cultuurwerf/Buro Beeldende Kunst, Vlissingen / De Fundatie, Zwolle / Groninger Museum / Het Bonnefantenmuseum / het Haarlem College / ING / Kunsthal KAdE, Amersfoort / Marres – centre for contemporary culture, Maastricht / MOTI, Breda / Museum de Pont, Tilburg / Museum het Valkhof / Museum Jan Cunen, Oss / Museum van Bommel van Dam, Venlo / Museum voor Moderne Kunst, Arnhem / P.ART / Schunck*, Heerlen / Stadsschouwburg Utrecht / Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam / Stedelijk Museum Schiedam / Stedelijk Museum ‘s Hertogenbosch / TwentseWelle, Enschede / VPRO NPO DOC.

It’s about the fact that every action has a cause. People don’t fly airplanes into a building without a reason..a reason of pain, in your close area, like your wife or daughter. And the question of ” why” is something I miss often in (American) mass media.

Purpose of this video is to think about causes, in terroristic acts, but also in criminality in general. What causes criminal behaviour? Can that be avoided? Take away pain, fear and hopelessness.

Terrorists don’t fly airplanes into buildings without reasons. Reasons often caused by pain, suffering/death of wifes/children. Western arms trying to stop the bleeding of this daughter.. without any use..

For the occasion of the PICNIC08 I filmed the 2 great new works, showing art on Second Life is evolving to a higher quality level.

a commentary on the nature of corporate conformity
by Arahan Claveau & Nebulosus Severine

Avatar Orchestra Metaverse
The New Economy – by Blaise DeLaFrance Voom

Using in-world instruments. The sounds grow stronger when the camera approaches.
Concerts are played with people all over the world.
Instruments are created specific for each piece. These instruments also feature visuals and animations, and performances of a jumping, hovering, floating, dancing and twirling Avatar.

Orchestra Metaverse is a truly unique and spectacular event.
The Orchestra approach Second Life as an instrument itself.
The result is dependent on both the performers and the virtual environment
in which they play. (D, I, CA, USA, N, UK)

Preview about the underground world in Second Life. Which parts are hidden and forbidden? Appearance is communication, and with total control of appearance, what is the desired reaction? Freedom of thoughts?

This work was a reaction of the article that paedophilia was found on Second Life, I tried to make a movie what this actually looked like. After this article many businesses backed out of Second Life, not wanting to be affiliated. Research and Think for Yourself!
