Full Description

"welkom 2 r'dam", 2005 creates the perception of a tourist site for visitors coming to Rotterdam, the Netherlands: re-working the language, strategies and mechanisms common to these sites to ‘promote’ dialogue about architecture in relation to identity and locality. Net.art work addresses specific issues about Rotterdam architecture but creates a more universal awareness of how each of us experience architecture and how the identity of a city is created. Users thoughts on the identity of their city can be e-mailed. Second in a series of three net.art works in connection with the "beingthere" series: 2003-2006; "beingthere.v2.r’dam.05". Programming was done in collaboration with ISIS Arts as part of a New Media Arts Commission. Project funded by Stimuleringsfonds Voor Architectuur.
