Peter Luining


Member Since January 1, 1996

Peter Luining studied contemporary philosophy in the mid 80's. After his study he became active in the Amsterdam vj-scene. He started fiddling with computers, and made 3D animations in commercial jobs. He also directed video- clips. Since 1996 he makes autonomous artwork on the net.

After doing some obscure net performances, Luining first got international recognition with his work "clickclub", which he presented at the Transmediale festival in Berlin. His use of sound in this work gave him the un-official title 'next generation Superbad'. Since 1997 Luinings' work is turning towards a kind of minimalism, while maintaining his earlier research of the dynamics of the net. A sidestep from his artwork, but still a further exploration of art on the net, was his work as the curator of the exhibition "Net Affects" in spring 2000. Since then Peter Luining has produced two cdroms. One of his last presentations (September 2000) in V2, Rotterdam, evoked the remark from Dutch professor in computer arts Remko Scha: "If Mondriaan were still alive, this is what he would do."
