In Wassenaar we have a windmill. In this monumentally Dutch beauty there is a gallery. A place where exhibitions are curated, sourced from the active community of city residents and good friends who make art together (or by themselves). To make this community more visible we are using the art of Wassenaar as a source of content we hope to liberate by making an interactive VISUAL – SPACE.
We have been engaging members with re-calibration sessions organized by helene courrier and Dennis Luijer. Step by step we are uncovering a new story that opens up the doors to this 45+ year old art group. By doing these sessions we slowly but surely uncover a new story. Starting with eggs we moved into self portraits and during the last session we started to look at the community through all of its art.
By simply taking all the online content of the art group and putting it together in one visual multiverse ( a long print of paper), we were able to look at the diversity and multi talented group of artists who live and create in Wassenaar.
But in order to really start engaging with the different types of art be needed to cut up the print and make the artists create their own CONSTELLATIONS.
One of the best things that came out of this session was the Truus-Remark that we should look at the art of Wassenaar not as groups of disciplines, but as dispersed random creations. What if you would zoom through a space and experience a chaotic collection of creation…all made in Wassenaar. This thought was amazing… thank you Truus!
After a session like this, you go home and think about what steps can be made to make this group and its Artfull expressions, more visible to the outside world beyond the windmill.
Jannis Karalis and Dennis Luijer are looking at the interaction and the story connecting all of these unique possible spaces. In our main VISUAL SPACE you will find a bubble with a floating triangular logo inside. This is where we will try to build up the connection between all of the members of the Art group Wassenaar.
On the 12th of December we will be adding more content to the space WITH the people who will come. Click here to go and check it out.
At the moment this experience will only run on your PC… the mobile efforts are coming along nicely. We have the backing of some friends at T-mobile,. who have provided us with some phones for experimentation. Once this platform is downloadable from either the play- or the appstore… there is going to be a party!
This Space has been under development for a while now. It is a MAP that shares the look and feel of the Westduinpark in The Hague. The idea behind it lies in the participatory process of the municipality of The hague. In 2014 (!) they organised co-creative sessions under the inspired hands of Tom Vaessen. This Lead to lots of ideas which can be seen at Visually yours here.
This V I S U A L – S P A C E has some different element in it to engage all the people who worked on all of the future plans of the park. Check it out on www.haagseduinen.nl
Visually yours is an invested partner in the Event Design Collective. An international team of event professionals who are improving the event industry standard through systematical design of change .
In pursuit of a strategically designed event value for the INTERNET SOCIETY the collective was invited to help realise a huge global online event called INTERCOMMUNITY. This Global 24 hour event connected 56 celebratory nodes and 15 hourly interactive nodes starting in Los Angeles and going to such cities as Tokyo, Johannesburg, Beirut, Geneva and Guatalahara.
every hour yielded a visual summery made by two great visual translators (jefta Bade and Jochem Galama) and connected by Dennis Luijer of Visually yours.
To make this Visual come to life, we have put it inside of a V I S U A L – S P A C E: INTERCOMMUNITY.SPACE.
The idea behind this 360 transfer / infusion was to make the visual end result of the event a point of inspiration and remembrance beyond the event itself. When moving through the VISUAL-SPACE you can explore the summarised content of each different nodes. When you click on the cube, you will move to the twitter images made all over the world. When you engage the end station of this visual wall you will be taken to the final round table. The collected action points of each node can be experienced by moving over the nodes themselves.
Please enjoy by using the Keyboard arrow for left/right/ up and down. Use your mouse or trackpad to look around.
The intention of this V I S U A L – S P A C E is to map out and SHOW the HUMANITY of the internet. The internet is a force for good and Humanity is at the centre of its growth. #shapetomorrow #next25.
Visual-spaces is an online platform geared towards the Virtual Experience.
These SPACES help you to stand next to what people DO instead of reading about its in neatly filled out paragraphs.
However…This platform is NOT meant to be immersive. It is still being prototyped as you experience it, to help you expand the way you experience content and interact with others by being able to stand in the middle of bthe story…as it develops.
This new online experience introduces the beginnings of something new. The ability to look at value plotted over time. By being able to move through the entire picture and look at the situation from all angles, you are given the opportunity to understand everyones point of view.
Visual-Spaces is an instrument to help you connect your steps to whatever story you want.
