I CAN SHOW YOU THE WORLD
-deconstructed, discolored, disproportionate-
2017
installation / AR / video

While digitalism is blurring
with realism, I am fascinated
by the beauty of the digital
layer. This layer embraces
digital culture, it shows that
something belongs in the digital
world and goes hand in hand
with the endless possibilities
of digital abstraction. Digital
realism intents to blur with
the real world and will poten-
tially be misleading. This
realism will make sure that
the uniqueness of a digital
landscape will disappear, this
is why I believe that abstrac-
tion and fantasy should remain
in the digital realm. I am giving
a personal perspective on the
opposition of digital realism
and digital abstraction. I show
this perspective in an AR land-
scape which can be viewed by
using the Microsoft HoloLens.


I would like to thank Jan
Kolkmeier and Emiel Harmsen
from the Human Media
Interaction
department
at the University of Twente
for their guidance with the
HoloLens techniques.
