Sander Veenhof (NL, 1973) loves to spend time in semi-digital worlds. Programmable environments in particularly. Although his curiosity relates to a far away future society in which we all live in a mixed reality universe, his art practice is hands-on and situated in the present. His present. Thanks to AR he is able to stage his own speculative real life versions of an imaginary universe, and live in it. By doing so he is able explore new (tech) domains from the inside out, with a focus on what it is like to become a semi-digital being enhanced with new super powers but limited by new boundaries too. Veenhof started creating cross-reality projects a decade ago in the avatar world Second Life, then moved on to AR and last year his playground was our Zoom reality. It turned us all into (programmable) digital appearances, so sitting still wasn't an option for Veenhof. Nor for the attendees of his invite-only interactive Zoom sessions in which he tested various multi-user synchronised AR effects.
