Joachim Rotteveel is an artist based in The Hague, Netherlands,
who utilizes techno-scientific methods to represent ideas
about contemporary culture. He studied Autonomous Art at
St.Joost in ’s-Hertogenbosch and completed his Master of
Science in Media Technology at Leiden University in 2005.
At the art academy, he practiced traditional techniques
like painting and sculpting.
In the following period he
co-founded the media-collective "EyeGasm" with media-artists
in Amsterdam. In this time he worked as a VJ using Amiga
1200's, VHS-recorders and television screens. Since then his work has become more conceptual, focusing on technology
and philosophy as a theoretical base for his work. His graduation-project
for the MSc in MediaTechnology was an experimental research
in controlling human motory-functions with a computer.
In 2008, his projects resulted in an exhibition with Museum Boijmans Van
Beuningen where archaeological pottery was shown in the context of
contemporary industrial rapid prototyping techniques.
