Dimitri Nieuwenhuizen is a visual philosopher in art, design and technology. He studied at the Technical University of Delft and the Design Academy Eindhoven. Within his autonomous and applied work he researches from the perspective of several disciplines the affect and effect of digital culture. Humanizing the unhuman and exploring the missing links between the digital and the physical. Besides giving talks at numerous places around the world, he educates at several art academies including the design master programme at Sandberg Institute Amsterdam, curates and initiates exhibitions, symposia, think-tanks en hackathons and is one of the supervisors of the Sandberg@Mediafonds masterclass. He is member of several juries and selection committees, ambassador of the Dutch Design Awards, member of the advisory board of the international technology festival Border Sessions and ambassador of the Creative City of The Hague. Building upon 20 years of experience in new media art and experimental media practices, he is also co-director of the multidisciplinary design studio LUST and the research-based art and technology laboratory LUSTlab. Here new pathways for art and design are explored on the cutting edge where new media, information technologies, performance, architecture, urban systems, graphic and industrial design overlap.

Res Sapiens
Titel Res Sapiens
Jaartal 2011
Omschrijving The Res Sapiens project merges the digital world with the physical. It connects them seamlessly, treating both entities equally. It asks questions not only to us, but also to itself. Res Sapiens refers to thinking physical objects, from products to architecture, that surpass their visual representation and display their meaning, role and status in society. The continuous stream of (public) digital data and information form the energy on which the Res Sapiens can live. It builds the oil fields of the future, where an ever growing digital heritage increases our understanding and knowledge and, most importantly, creates a stronger collective consciousness. With our limited perceptual capabilities we can only surf on the surface of the Digital Information Bubble. Lamp001/1 is a visualization of a living internet organism, and moreover it attempts to fuse human and machine senses and build on finding answers of how it could help us. Lamp001/1 is the first Res Sapiens of its kind. It is both a parasite and a paradox, an identical clone and a unique individual. It thrives on information, collecting and conveying data in seamless communication with others while continuously learning from its surrounding. You can begin a direct conversation (tweet @ressapiens), interacting one on one but also observe as your interaction lingers, instigating new conversations and new streams of information.

Omschrijving During the 22nd International Poster and Graphic Design Festival of Chaumont, LUST (NL) took over the Chapelle des Jésuites with an in-situ piece intended to build bridges between the Festival’s past and future. Extending the notion of archiving to the future and to hypothetical pasts. Prior to the exhibition, they compiled a visual and textual database. Visitors at La Chapelle could interact with this ‘polyarc’ to make their own digital or print publication, before adding their own contributions to it. Through its content, the installation explores and informs us about graphic design in Chaumont: venues, accomplishments and projects. Through its form, it considers the paths and media travelled by graphic design; and how they are evolving in light of technology, the amount of information and images being produced, and changes in the applications of the discipline. During the festival visitors could pick up one-of-a-kind print-on-demand booklets at La Chapelle which could be inserted into this dossier. This dossier functions as a ‘snapshot’ of a constantly growing archive. Visitors were invited to contribute to this archive by sending Twitter messages. Any messages sent will be stored and made accessible via the installation and printed for the dossiers.

Form+Code
Titel Form+Code
Jaartal 2010
Omschrijving Together with Casey Reas (Processing) and Chandler McWilliams LUST developed the book and site Form+Code in Design, Art and Architecture, published by Princeton Architectural Press. The publication discusses the role of software in visual design, art, and architecture. It hopes to generate interest in creating visual and spatial form with software across diverse fields by focusing on the history, theory, and practice of software in the arts. The book is about one fourth text and three fourths images and is organized around two parallel narratives: one told through images and captions, and the other through essays with related diagrams and images. This allows the book to be read cover-to-cover or leisurely looked through as a source of inspiration. The first two chapters set the foundation for the rest of the book by discussing the history of the computer in the arts and how software is used to create form. The five themes of repetition, transformation, parameters, visualization, and simulation are deeply linked to code. Each of these sections begin with an essay to define the territory, continues with images and captions, and concludes with code examples. Form+Code is not a programming tutorial; its goal is to inspire though the discussion of themes and projects. Each chapter starts with a paragraph set in a specially designed typeface, that does not exist as a typeface, but is programmed. The code generates the form, and this form will be different with each combination of letters. The book is available at Amazon.

PosterWall
Titel PosterWall
Jaartal 2008
Omschrijving For the Graphic Design Museum in Breda we developed in 2008 the Poster Wall for the 21st Century, both online and as a part of the museum’s permanent installation '100 Years of Graphic Design in the Netherlands'. In the museum 600 unique posters are automatically generated daily using content gathered from various internet sources. Online, one new poster is generated every five minutes. New posters are automatically generated when physical events occur in the space: for example, when visitors enter the space, when visitors view the touchtables, and when visitors approach the wall itself. Live-versions of the posterwall have been shown at the 2010-2011 Triennial of Design at the Cooper Hewitt in New York, at the Wide White Space exhibition in Wattis, San Francisco and Public Design Expo in Seoul. This 2.0 version of the Posterwall offered new possibilities, like Tweets, QR-codes, and social sharing. The latest version of Posterwall is currently up at the Walker Art in Minneapolis and travels in Januari 2012 to the Cooper Hewitt in New York before travelling all over the States.

Jaartal 2007
Omschrijving Turning the city of The Hague into an International Airport. The Grote Markstraat —600 meters long— was transformed into a landingstrip, using 36x6 indivual controllable lights and 48 2000-Watt speakers, creating the experience of airplanes landing in the street. The landingstrip connected the two main areas of the festival, with a total of more than 25 stages throughout the city. The Volharding building functioned as an arrivals & departures sign, all tied together by audio-announcements of ‘incoming’ artists in eight different languages.
