The VISUAL artist
The videos and the aesthetics presented in the probe are the result of the collaboration with the visual artist Lotje van Lieshout.
Bio & previous work
Lotje van Lieshout (1980) is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. Her work consists of short films, paintings, and work with Blender (3D animation). She often combines different media within a single project. Through various layers of self-made components, she plays with the notions of what is real and what is fake in her work.
Her work has been shown in EYE filmmuseum Amsterdam, Kunsthal KAde in Amersfoort, and Museum Gouda.
Currently, she is working on a project that revolves around cooking and dining in a futuristic world where virtual realms blend with daily reality and fantasy. She combines imaginative and handcrafted costumes and props, with backgrounds that are made with CGI and AI.
With the advent of the internet and the ubiquitous accessibility of information, a part of the unknown and mysterious aspects of the world has vanished. Getting lost or discovering unknown places has become nearly impossible. Simultaneously, numerous new virtual worlds are being built online, and it's easy to get lost in them. These human-conceived and designed worlds possess something fascinating yet uncanny.
