BYOB – Rafaël Rozendaal’s Bring Your Own Beamer
BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) is an open source DIY curatorial format inniciated by Rafaël Rozendaal. These series of one-night-exhibitions hosting artists and their projectors have been spreading across the world rapidly.
Rafaël Rozendaal will be speaking at the You Are In Control conference for digital creatives taking place in Reykjavik 28.-30. of October. So we thought it would be perfect to have an open BYOB night in conjunction to the conference.
The event is held in collaboration between The Living Arts Museum, The Icelandic Art Center and You Are In Control.
Born in 1980, Dutch-Brazilian Rafaël Rozendaal lives and works in New York. He is a visual artist who uses the internet as his canvas. His artistic practice consists of websites, installations, drawings, writings and lectures. Spread out over a vast network of domain names, he attracts a large online audience of over 40 million visits per year.
His work researches the screen as a pictorial space, reverse engineering reality into condensed bits, in a space somewhere between animated cartoons and paintings. His installations involve moving light and reflections, taking online works and transforming them into spatial experiences.
