The Hague Highlights

Reactive visuals inspired on Penrose tiling for a video wall projection on the facade of museum Escher at the Palace.

In 2023 I came across a work of art based on Penrose Tiling which immediately reminded me of Escher. It inspired me to start experimenting and find a dynamic form based on this pattern. When I was asked to create 1 minute of motion art to be part of a video wall on the museum building of Escher at the Palace, I adopted this experiment and used reactive animation principles that move the animation to the beat of the music.

The work was presented in the winter of 2024 during The Hague Higlights light festival within the concept Attempt the Absurd overseen by design bureau Mr. Beam in collaboration with event organisator Spinner & Langkous.
