“How to solve 5 Problems using a map” produced by Theo is another result of the ‘How to DIY‘ workshop week. I like this one a lot because it plays with the different formats of DIY. The successful McGiver TV series is well known for its story embedded DIY survival solutions. Theo converted these absurd Mc Giver How to’s to a typical step by step Instructables tutorial. This way godfather Mc Giver becomes part of the DIY Web 2.0 masses. Do his solutions convince the Instructables audience? The web based, user 2 user DIY format of Instructables attracts a very large community. Sometimes its tutorials seem to be more influenced by the old TV formats and than by cutting edge Web2.0. The entertainment factor often outweighs the usefulness of a DIY tutorial. A dream came true, everybody can be Mc Giver today!

Behind the screens. 50 years of computer art.
Online, interactive and endless ones and zeroes in algorithms and coding; digital art, in all its forms and designs, is occupying an increasingly important place. And not only that. The growth and developments in the field of digital art also force us to think about the definition and meaning of concepts such as ‘unique’ and ‘authentic’. With more than 50 works by 29 artists, the group exhibition Behind the screens – 50 years of computer art shows the various forms of digital art and the developments from the 1970s to the present. A large part of the works of art in this exhibition come from a private collection from Apeldoorn, which includes a number of iconic works of art and gives an impression of the development of digital art.
