  • Interview at The Aesthetics of Creative Coding
    29 June 2020 |
    On June 30, an interview with me will appear in the “Behind the screens”-series on the Medium-blog The Aesthetics of Creative Coding. In the interview I’m reflecting on my history with livecoding, discuss code as an interface, and the various projects that relate to livecoding. The video of the performance is now on Vimeo
  • Just a question of mapping tour to Norway
    1 March 2020 |
    Currently I am on a tour to Norway, as part of my book project “Just a question of mapping”. I’m traveling by train, so I also made stops in Aabenraa (visiting Nina Essendrop) and Copenhagen, and will make a stop also in Malmö. Details of the full tour are on the book project site, and I am also making blog posts there on the progress, both of the tour and of the book research and writing. And it seems out of the work on the book, at least one new performance will evolve: a lecture performance on mapping. At the Faculty of Senses presentation in Copenhagen I performed a first version of this, and it’s likely that this will evolve further.
  • Article on Fair Practice at PlatformBK
    12 January 2020 |
    Over the past years a Fair Practice Code has been developed in the arts sector in the Netherlands, after realising the precarious situation of artists - both financially and in terms of power of negotiation. For the upcoming round of four year funding for institutions, adherence to this code is one of the requirements to get funding. But looking in detail at how a city like Den Haag includes questions about the Fair Practice Code there is still reason to be concerned. In reaction, I wrote the article “Als Fair Practice Code het antwoord is, wilt u dan de vraag nog eens herhalen?” (if fair practice code is the answer, could you repeat the question perhaps?). An English translation will follow later in the month.
