Working in many media, Stijn, member of the Futurefarmers artist collective, reveals the subtleties of life via works on paper, video, and interactive installations. His artwork embodies a sense of play and sensitivity that reminds us to take a closer look at what surrounds us. He is the co-founder of Boutique Vizque, a platform for media-based explorations resulting in various tangible installations, including Babble, Dustbunnies, and Modus Motus. Stijn lives and works in the Bay Area, but still has a strong connection with his country of origin, Belgium.
During his NEA-sponsored artist residency in the Learning Studio, Stijn worked side-by-side with Michael Swain, allowing for unavoidable collisions. Stijn finished a long awaited tangible interface for a rhythm sequencer called Beat Blocks. This wooden interface enables a playful and collaborative approach to music making and can be used both for educational purposes and as a performance tool.
