MAPP 

On display November 4–13, 2022

Uithoorn, The Netherlands 

MAPP, an abbreviation of Mapping At Private Properties, is an interactive, mobile, point-and-shoot video-mapping system, with which imagery is projected from an old-fashioned pram onto a custom-built projection screen. To activate MAPP, participants will step into the light to be scanned. Then, within seconds of stepping away, they become part of the artwork as the resulting MAPP scans appear among the colorful images and patterns in the projection. Don’t forget to bring a camera to capture all the selfie moments! 

Biography 

AlexP is Alex Prooper and Simone van Dam, and their studio is based in the Netherlands. Prooper is a digital media artist. He studied physics but ended up in the software industry more than 35 years ago. Prooper started to focus more and more on making art through his own developed software, and he has been working as a full-time artist for more than 10 years. Van Dam has studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Amsterdam and has been working with Prooper for the past 15 years. The art of AlexP is always technical but often based on or derived from natural phenomena. AlexP examines systems and the patterns and behavior as a result of these systems, often involving the spectator in the system of the work of art, making it interactive. AlexP shows at festivals, art exhibitions, galleries, and museums, including Light City (Baltimore, Maryland), Amsterdam Light Festival, Amsterdam Dance Event, Youth Film Festival, and Kröller-Müller Museum (Otterlo, The Netherlands).
