V2_Institute for the Unstable Media

"In the turbulent year of 1981 the building at Vughterstraat 234 in Den Bosch was squatted by a group of artists and musicians, including a young Joke Brouwer and an almost as young Alex Adriaansens. There was no place for their sounds, art or ideas in the established venues, so they created one of their own at 'V234,' quickly shortened to 'V2.' September 3 and 4, 1981 the first events where organized. In 1982, these pragmatic anarchists decided to organize themselves into a foundation, and V2_ was officially born."

The 2010 Kinetica Art Fair: Pioneers and Masters of Kinetic Art

"Kinetica Art Fair is produced by Kinetica Museum and is the first of its kind in the UK. It provides collectors, curators and the public with a unique opportunity to view and purchase artworks from leading contemporary arts organisations and artists specialising in kinetic, electronic, robotic, light, sound, time–based and interdisciplinary new media art. For 2010, over 35 galleries and organisations are taking part with over 150 artists exhibiting.

The inaugural 2009 Kinetica Art Fair was a seminal cultural event, attracting over 9,000 visitors, and increased the importance and value of kinetic, electronic and new media art on a global level as well as in the mainstream arts press. Kinetica Art Fair 2010 will again take place at P3, the 14,000 sq ft multi–disciplinary arts venue at 35, Marylebone Rd (opposite Madame Taussauds).

For 2010 a special feature exhibition will be dedicated to the pioneers and Masters of kinetic art, with pieces on loan from private collection as well as original interactive installations from the 1968 exhibition of cybernetic art, Cybernetic Serendipity."

Televirtual Fruit Machine

This interactive installation, similar to video games, was presented simultaneously at IC' 93 in Tokyo and Multimediale 3 at Karlsruhe, linked up by the digital ISDN network, the player in Tokyo could join up directly with a player at Karlsruhe. In order to bring together the two halves of the same object, the two players had to co–ordinate their movements and interactions visually, within the virtual space of the game.

The work centres–on a virtual 'fruit–machine' that is controlled by users communicating via a ISDN network.The fruit–machine metaphor references the Paradise parable.
