Matthijs Munnik - Citaldels: Lightscape, 2012 by de_buurman
Test_Lab: The Graduation Edition 2012 V2_, Rotterdam Lightscape is the latest work in the Citadels series, where Munnik researches the unique qualities of flickering light. This project is strongly inspired by Brion Gysin and Ian Sommerville’s Dream Machine, the first artwork that realized the potential of flickering light. Lightscape is a window to a virtual world, visualizing an abstract universe composed only of light and sound.  The aim of this virtual universe is to explore the borders of our sensory hardware. While the eye tries to make sense of the sensory overload, a dazzling display of highly detailed patterns, fractals and geometry is rendered inside the retina and fed to the brain. The curious phenomena you see are created by the eye itself, induced by the installation. This effect is something that is impossible to capture on video or in text, it can only be experienced in real life. Matthijs Munnik is a new media artist currently living and working in The Hague. His work consists of performances and installations, that often play with the perception of the visitor.  Matthijs Munnik studied at Academie Minerva in Groningen and the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague.
