Ten days of Art festival jury report:

''Jeroen Huisman shows his fascination with seeing the ordinary and he does this in a very inviting way. (...) The accessibility of the artist and the inventiveness of the installation system convinced the jury of its power.'


Orphanage of Lost Impressions (OLI) - a hybrid system of visualisations

During the Ten days of Art festival 2014 - The Discovery - visitors could experience 120 photographs that belong to my urban photo project Fragmented City Archive. I collect images during citywalks, concentrating on subjects most people walk by. The pictures found this way I consider ''orphans'', disconnected from their origin. OLI is their new home.

The Orphanage of Lost Impressions is meant to be able to act as an urban discoverer and to interact with its surroundings locally and process material on the spot. It is a mobile work station for the traveling and exploring artist, a photo archive, a transfer print unit, an analoque to digital to analoque reverser, a reflective negative replicator, a digital photo viewer, a video screen, a wifi access-point, a fm radio transmittor and a pop up exhibition space at the same time. Many curious visitors called it a cameleon and shapeshifter. They could experience photographs in different media and interactive situations. Children were confronted with the ''photo-negative'', mostly unknown to them.

You may be confused now, but OLI is not about technique, it is about the image and how we experience visual media in the ''real world''. All together I ask myself whether our brains need touchable material to observe and feel in order to be in sync with the natural world and ourselves. With OLI I try to reflect on the massive impact the revolution of visual electronic applications has on our daily life, with a clear preference for analogue media.

We live in a time of archive destruction. True books and printed media have less meaning. The ''screen'' however, in our telephones and other devices, seems to have conquered a direct relation with our eyes. We tend to see information from the screen as a part of reality, changing the way we interact with the world and how we experience it. ''Old school'' reality gets mixed up with its virtual version.

The Orphanage of Lost Impressions is build in a modular sence, so I can adjust it over time. This is version 1.0.

10 days of Art in Bergen
The Ten Days of Art festival in Bergen is an anual art event that attracts a steady stream of art lovers. Within a wide circle around the village of Bergen many artists present their work on all sorts of locations. Approximately 3000 visitors approached my Orphanage of Lost Impressions installation with great interest and curiosity, in the midst of three nice gardens, a temporary open air exhibition place called ''The Three Gardens''.
