V2_'s STARTS residents, Center for Genomic Gastronomy & Mark IJzerman, will create three new experiments in our 3x3 series. This is their second 3x3 instalment.

Apr 2022
18:00 to 21:00


This event takes place between 6 and 9 p.m. during the Kunstavond. This event is free, registration is not needed. Feel free to walk in at any time between 6 and 9 p.m.

Mark IJzerman

Mark IJzerman is an interdisciplinary artist working on the intersection of ecology and media art. IJzerman uses digital technologies to create processes that have their own agency, to make works creating intimacy between us and the other-than-human. His work is always informed by field research as well as working with other professionals.

For his STARTS residency on Biodiversity in the Rotterdam Port Mark IJzerman is researching sessile organisms in the Rotterdam port and the way they build their ecosystems, comparing the immense infrastructures we build in our harbors to the tiny habitats these life forms are creating.

Genomic Gastronomy

THE CENTER FOR GENOMIC GASTRONOMY is an artist-led think tank that examines the biotechnologies and biodiversity of human food systems.
Their mission is:
* to map food controversies

* to prototype alternative culinary futures

* to imagine a more just, biodiverse & beautiful food system.
In November the Center for Genomic Gastronomy began work on their STARTS residency: DROUGHT IN WATERLAND.


Experiments are an essential part of every art practice. Even more than the end results, experiments, bèta versions and try-outs offer an inside look on how an artist thinks and works. Therefore, the experiment is made central in 3x3.
V2_ offers three artists the space, time and resources to develop three experiments. Every first Friday evening of the month the public can witness one of these experiments live. A unique experience, since no one knows what experiments will lead to…


The #STARTS residency on Biodiversity in the Rotterdam Port is commissioned by V2_ and co-funded by the STARTS EU program.
