Marieke Verbiesen is a dutch new media artist, she creates interactive installations and performances using experimental animation.
Her crossdiciplinairy works can be best described as a fused output of various media, often resulting in lifesize installations that combine cinema, sculpture and interactivity, revolving around visual interpretations of digital entities that came to life in a binary environment. Such as computergames, datagenerated landscapes and science fiction fenomena, visually translated to physical installations while referencing their digital origins.
These works often embody the use of obsolete technology such as classic computergame hardware and celluloid film with new, emerging technologies such as motiontracking and other forms of responsive, human input.
Audience participation is often a fundamental element these works, where the role of the audience changes
from spectators to active participants and activators of the work.
