Structural vacancy is an international problem, which includes cities like London, New York or Tokyo. “Ruimtekoers” is a new initiative from a network of urban pioneers based in Arnhem (The Netherlands). They will present a public program from March 14th / April 11th 2015, packed with innovative interventions. The problem of vacancy will be used to bring the city to life. Available spaces are literally lit with green LED lighting and projections. The HyperCube installation is a part of the program.

Hypercube, an intense installation art experience

Hypercube is an art installation in which the viewer is immersed in an audiovisual environment. The cube-shaped space of the Hypercube -surrounded by mirrors and dynamic lightlines- guarantees a stunning multi-sensory experience. Infinite reflections, lack of spatial reference, intense focus, disorientation and a distorted sense of time and space are key. Hypercube gives its own definition of how space can be experienced and adds a new dimension to one of the most cultivated building blocks known to mankind: the Cube. For more info about this project, check out this article: http://www.enlightermagazine.com/projects/hypercube-jaap-van-den-elzen

Soundscape @ Manifesta9 – parralel events

Lichtval is a spatial light installation by Jaap van den Elzen whose shape is loosely based on the elevator cars from the mines. But where the miners entered a world of total darkness, in Lichtval the spectator enters a dynamic space of light. A soundscape has been created exclusively for the installation.
