Deep Dive
Création numérique | software OS X, HD | couleur | 7'35'' | Pays-Bas | 2016
Deep Dive offers an endless zoom into a picture, revealing an infinitely detailed imaginary world that emerges from the original image. While zooming, the image is constantly being refined in real-time, and the viewer can steer this process by tracking points of interest with the cursor. Each new `dive` starts with a randomly downloaded picture from the online WikiMedia archive.
The artists couple Driessens & Verstappen have worked together since 1990. They attempt an art in which spontaneous phenomena are created systematically. Art that is not entirely determined by the subjective choices of a human being, but instead is generated by autonomously operating processes. In addition to working with natural processes, the couple develops computer programs for artificial growth and evolution. An important source of inspiration are the self-organising processes in nature which continuously create original forms. Works of Driessens & Verstappen are in collections a.o. Centre Pompidou Paris, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam. They exhibited at museums and galleries a.o. Kröller-Müller Museum Otterlo, IVAM Institute Valencia, Neue Pinakothek München, Eyebeam New York, Young Projects Los Angeles. The artists couple gave presentations at conferences such as Siggraph Los Angeles, Second Iteration Melbourne. In 1999 and 2001 they have won the VIDA award with their Tickle robot projects in an international competition for Art & Artificial Life. In 2013 the couple received the Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology Award for their entire oeuvre. Driessens & Verstappen are represented by DAM gallery Berlin.
