Good artists copy

Great artists copy & paste

During the summer Hamsterwoede has transformed the RE:Search:Gallery into his own retrofuturist maker laboratory that is built around machines from his collection of vintage equipment and custom modded tools to research fundamental structures in art, most specifically the intersection between knitting, video and other patterns in textile arts.

Within RE:Collect Hamsterwoede invites other makers, scientists, hobbyists and artists to take part in this research, especially those with an interest in knitting, electronic[s,] music or analogue video. Glitches may occur.

RE:Collect | Opening
September 15 
19.00 – 22.00 hrs.

Hamsterwoede has set up demonstrations of his machines, and is showing off the machines’ creations. If you like giving machines human qualities, then this will be the parasocial event of the year. Also Art.
If not: there will be drinks, and probably people to talk to, and maybe some music.

This will be a special one-time only event

Hamsterwoede (Martin J. Fischer Kloos) is a maker who likes to work in different media, with a special focus on knitting and media art.

His research is sometimes poetic, and sometimes very down to earth. He likes to explore patterns, and the errors that occur in practice in comparison to theory.
