Co curator and director of GOGBOT festival, which got rewarded as the Most Innovative Festival of the Netherlands.

Wanna Shock Your Senses? GO GOGBOT!

This annual festival since 2004 deals with ART+MUSIC +TECHNOLOGY today and transforms the inner city of Enschede into a cyber-punk-fairground. 4 long days and nights of groundbreaking installations, performances, exhibitions, screenings, lectures, parties, and more, dealing with society today… recent topics: The Singularity is near…Resistance is futile (2010), Googlization of Everything – Datapanic (2011), Internet Memes-The Selfish Gene (2012), Sex and Technology (2013). GOGBOT was winner of the innovation award in 2011 and presents work at Japan Media Arts festival, Conflux New York, Techfest Mumbai, International Filmfestival Moscow, Transmediale@C-base Berlin and OHM 2013.


U.S. scifi author and WIRED editor Bruce Sterling:’… Folks, the Dutch counterculture cannot get any more messed-up than GOGBOT…….Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think Holland can get any cooler and more out-there than a ’synthetic aesthetics salon.” It can get grungier, like if you’re hanging out at GOGBOT, but it can’t get any cooler…’

“For a healthy dose of sensory overload you can’t go wrong with GOGBOT, the annual explosion of audio-visual multimedia terror. From digital art to electronic music at its craziest, the festival incites an electro-exodus to the far east of the Netherlands, with international guests from Berlin, Belarus, Budapest and more. Go GOGBOT!” –Subbacultcha!

“Cyberpunk-circus” – Florian Cramer


Virtual Reality project in 2001. A production of SARA Computing and Networking (SARA) and the Sunchild Foundation, 2001. Halima* travels through cyberspace. Cyberspace is a dream environment simulated with the help of high-tech scientific computers. This environment is the setting for a musical piece where dancer Sandra Leonora, in a suit attached with sensors to direct the virtual world with her movements, performs a choreography.


The audience experiences this mix of reality and virtual-reality, in 3D-effect through special glasses. *Halima is African for patience, peace and dream. The virtual dancer in duet with the “flesh and blood” dancer lead the audience through five different virtual worlds. The powerful Silicon Graphics computers of SARA generate the virtual environment in a fairy-tale like atmosphere. This results in an interaction between virtual and reality; a conversation between humans, graphics and music.

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?

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.
