He is active as an independent set designer and visual artist since 2006. Together with Kurt d’haeseleer he runs the organisation The Werktank since 2010, a production house for new and old media art, which focuses on the practical aspects of the artwork.
Ief will talk about the Lightmap. Just like a map of a city creates a new view on the city, LIGHTMAP will create a new view on the changing weather and light during one year; a phenomenon that shapes our daily environment more than anything else. Our installation will capture the light and weather above Leuven of the year 2013 in ONE image consisting of 96.000 small pictures, printed on small plexi cubes of 7 x 7 mm. Every five minutes a picture made by a camera on the roof of the museum M will be printed on a plexi cube. During the whole year, the installation will create itself. The installation will be made of 365 strings and on each string 250 cubes are attached. Lightmap will be showed in Museum M from the 1st of January till the 31st of December 2013.
