Britt van den Boogaard invites visitors to a personalized experience that aims to induce a state of trance. Her machine works by translating frequencies into different types of stimuli: visible, audible and tactile. With input and improvisation from the performer, these overlap and create a synesthetic whole. The result is at once calming and disconcerting, and the viewer is suspended between a state of hyper-attention to reality, and a state of dreaming. Human and machine agency are joined in a curious but fascinating ritual: an exploration of perception and thought, which confronts and dissolves the mind-body division.


The work can be experienced in two different ways. The first is a composition, which will play continuously most days. Or, during certain time slots, come experience a personalized version of the work performed by the artist. Walk-in hours for live performances are:


Thursday, September 23 during opening night from 20:00h
Thursday, September 30 from 13:00 to 18:00
Friday, October 1 from 14:00 to 19:00
Saturday, October 9 from 17:00 to 20:00

Britt graduated in Film and Photography in 2020 from the art academy AKV St. Joost in Breda. Her work explores the boundaries of film as a medium. Her objects and installations, like the Trance Machine, are created by hand, incorporating tangibility, craftsmanship and imperfection into her work.
