Geert Mul – Horizons


march 1st – november 16th 2008

I’m proud to invite you to the new interactive installation HORIZONS by Geert Mul
at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam.

Geert Mul (Alphen a/d Rijn, 1965) has developed an interactive installation
specially for the museum entitled Horizons. Mul links the museological concept
‘collection’ to its contemporary variant: the database. He has selected works
from the museum’s collection that depict horizons. A database with images
of these works is connected to video projectors and a thermographic camera
that records visitors’ movements. Mul thus creates an interactive and panoramic
image using pieces from the collection as building blocks. Horizons is intervention #4
within The Collection One and will be shown for the first time during Museumnacht.

I am looking foreward to see it. Damn! Geert Mul and me were always dreaming how
it would be to do a huge thing in Boijmans. Well things can happen as you can see..
