Bas Van Koolwijk (NL)
Although Bas van Koolwijk began his artistic career as a painter, he soon found the medium too limiting to express the colour and motion he envisioned. So he began active experiments with the video format. His work can be seen as an aggressive attack on the illusion of video itself, his work examines, through a rigorous and formalistic approach, the disturbances of the video format and exposes the face of the machine, which lives behind the often-placating veil of the televised media. In his live solo performance, van Koolwijk generates a feedback control circuit between the audio and the video signals, making audio and video become two facets of a self-sustaining data stream.
