Artist in Residence at Ademruimte
In 2020 Studio POCA was Artist in Residence at Ademruimte. Stichting Ademruimte is an innovative art platform and place for contemplation through interactive biofeedback art.
During this period, Studio POCA explored how to translate the analog techniques and POCA aesthetics into generatively produced textile prints. By translating digitally recorded heart rate data. The result of this research has led to a new technique in which various patterns in the heartbeat are translated into generated textile prints. Due to the use of sensor technology it is possible to generate very varied prints by means of a heart rate recording. The results of this new technique have led to the new project ‘Totem’. We are very grateful for the financial support we have received from the Prins Bernhard Culture Fund and the Gemeente den Haag, to realise this project. Beer van Geer and Julie de Ruijter (Studio POCA) will start the project in 2021.
Studio poca, in collaboration with Stichting Ademruimte, also developed a POCA world that interacts with the breath. For this interactive ‘Waaierwereld’ (Fan World), innovative biofeedback technology is used, which originates in healthcare.
We are very grateful for Stichting Ademruimte and the Gemeente den Haag for supporting this residency.
