Installations at Tolhuistuin
28 — 30 Oct


Hybrid Ecosystems (2021)
Entangled Others Studio (Sofia Crespo & Feileacan McCormick)

‘Hybrid Ecosystems’ are an unveiling of our entangled world, where the seemingly separate digital and physical worlds are tightly interwoven, communicating and interacting. These pieces are AI’s reimagination of what ecosystems and the world look and sound like. By prompting neural models trained on the boundless everyday visuality of our world make way for neural-speculative visions of reality to emerge. ‘Hybrid Ecosystems’ introduces you to an AI’s interpretation of the physical world, melding the tangible with the digital. FIBER 2021 exhibits an immersive audiovisual installation of the work. 




Becoming a Sentinel Species (2020),
Sissel Marie Tonn (DE)

‘Becoming a Sentinel Species’ is a fictional story imagining a future in which humans explore and reflect on the role of the sentinel as an eye witness to environmental pollution. The film follows two researchers who experimentally introduce microplastics collected from the sea into their own bodies. In order to “become sentinels” they isolate macrophages from blood and contaminate them with microplastics in a laboratory setting. The story takes a turn as the researchers discover that this encounter between the macrophages and microplastics may have profound neurophysiological consequences.


Light Scenography (2021)
Boris Acket (NL)

Boris Acket is an Amsterdam-based audiovisual artist, musician, media scenographer and programmer. His work is situated at the intersection of architecture, light and sound, evoking otherworldly experiences in visitors. Acket translates conceptual notions into immersive, multi-sensory experiences: technology, space, light, and sound all form a prism in which specific themes or subjects are explored and rematerialized.

Commissioned by FIBER, Acket developed a light scenography for the Tolhuistuin garden programme in line with the event’s theme Mutation. Come and experience it yourself when the twilight falls.




Anthropocene Monster (2021)
Timaeus (NL)

Especially for FIBER 2021, Timaeus (Tim van Hooft) combined two of his existing works into one immersive video installation. The artist often explores the ‘Anthropocene monster of the 21st century’, referring to the horrors humans have created by grossly interfering with earth’s ecosystems. His artistic practice focuses on speculative, visual narratives and imagery that derive from future-oriented thinking and altered realities.

Timaeus is fascinated by myths, folklore, fantasy & futurism, and uses these topics as a start for visual explorations. He specialises in digital media and works across a variety of outputs within the human computer interaction field.
