The communication of touch over networks has long been subject to exploration and reflection by media artists. The current global pandemic has brought to light a surprising lack of attention paid to the sense of touch in technical and conceptual advances in online communication. In this exhibition, artist Marnix de Nijs shares his practice-based research into the history of the artistic exploration of networked touch and presents a prototype that reflects on our contemporary desire for transnational simultaneous touch.

Opening times

 

Thursday, Saturday, Sunday 12:00–19:00h
Friday 20 May 10:00–23:00h (Kunstavond XL)

V2_Lab for the Unstable Media, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

Marnix de Nijs

 

As an artist, Marnix de Nijs shows how culture acts upon our senses, and he expresses this in a great variety of ways, making use of continually changing technology. This allows him to emphasise a new role for the artist that seems to have been established by our developing culture of technology. The interface between the body and technology forms an important basis for his work. Technology must literally merge, become absorbed into the body so that it becomes a co-determiner of perception.
