The term "hyper", which originates from Greek, carries with it the idea of excess. In the exaggeration of normal sizes, in the change of proportions, there has always been a special focus in art. In addition to the extraordinary size of the artworks, "hyper" refers primarily to the "hyper-new" multimedia technology that the exhibiting artists use for their light sculptures. Each work fills a complete space and offers an immersive and enduringly impressive experience.
Christine Sciulli uses light projection as her primary artistic medium. For the installation Ferment, she designs a textile sculpture surrounded by darkness.
The international group Squidsoup combines physical and dynamic spaces with novel and intuitive modes of interaction. The colour-intensive installation Submergence is a large, immersive, walk-through experience.
DEW Art Prize winner Julius Stahl’s work Lichtquadrat - Resonanzobjekt 2020 explores the relationships between acoustic and visual spatiality.
Philip Vermeulen’s work 10 Meters of Sound is an audio-visual kinetic composition. Four elastic bands, ten metres long, rotate and begin to undulate, creating moiré patterns.
In front of the museum, Giny Vos realizes her permanent installation Light Phenomena. Vos is one of the most renowned media artists currently working in the Netherlands and is installing a large glass cube that includes a total of 57.600 LEDS. Vos shows processes that take place under the influence of light.
