“Collection of Artifacts

was created in conjunction with the Abecedarium: NYC project through the New York Public Library. Abecedarium:NYC is an interactive online exhibition that reflects on the history, geography, and culture – both above and below ground – of New York City through 26 unusual words. Using original video, animation, photography and sound, Abecedarium:NYC constructs visual relationships between these select words and specific locations in the Bronx, Brooklyn , Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island…

… I really wanted to represent my own view of New York through a lens. So I went out to the Brooklyn Bridge with my camera and shot this footage. A Thousand Eyes is essentially my own exploration of the possibilities of the apparatus of the cinema. I really wanted to exploit the camera and force it to do the opposite of what is expected. The result: Beauty.”

“The fun and interactive nature of this installation is a new innovation of the Quartier des spectacles Lighting Plan, as it redefines the traditional architectural façade so as to enable passers-by to make it their own by interacting with the light shapes displayed.”

“The interactive installation Reaction Machine by Jonas Hielscher and Klaas Jan Mollema plays with the intimate field of tension between the people. Balance of power, personal input and connecting old and new technology are all part of this experience.”
