TEAM – ART VJ POOL
Ruben bass (Cologne, 1998) is a structure enthusiast, transforming reality into abstract, giving a unique perspective on natures beauty. Structures as he would describe them range from old chewing gum on the street to the street layout of a city. In his artistic process, Ruben is using the material of the work as the inspiration for the work. Through giving this perspective, Ruben would like to spread awareness and compassion.
His work could be described as highlighting, working more as a sculptor rather than a painter- while working with photographs of natural structure – using contrast color and saturation as his paintbrush. In this way, formations are sculpted out of reality. One of his primary interests is to connect music and visual art. The waves of sound and light are linked together to create a symbiotic double-medium experience.
Marie van Volenhoven (Amsterdam 1983) lives and works in Maastricht, the Netherlands, as an independent artist, multimedia theatre maker and lecturer in the interdisciplinary art and design & technology department.
Marie has developed her own instant composing software together with interaction design company Prefrontal Cortex, that allows her to work with analogue drawing, digital painting, digital abstract composing, video’s and effects on stage. She positions herself as an artist that performs live as a ‘digital painter’, coming from a background as a traditional painter, filmer and photographer. She challenges the musicians to improvise with their instruments to her live projections. Vice versa she reacts, so a conversation between visual and musical language happens in front of the audience..
