“Technology today turns us into nothing-ness”

This is an interactive essay film installation in which I manipulate the viewer’s image through deepfake.
It’s a personal confrontation with the technology and a meditative intervention on what the self and your self image really are.

Featuring philosopher Mogobe Ramose




We are in the prototyping phase
and although we do already exhibit
and organise audience tests
we are not openly promoting the installation yet.

I M U prototype: start of experience



What is this?

This is a film-art experience which is purposefully quite mysterious. Practically it is a big black mirror screen, in front of which you can take a seat and look at yourself…or are you? Also, it’s been said that it’s a bit scary.

What is this about then?

It’s about you, it’s about me, it’s about humans meeting technology, it’s about the future, it’s about manipulation, it’s about us.

Who would you recommend partaking in this, whatever it is?

The intellectually curious and brave.

Could you say a bit more?

No. Better to just experience it yourself.

Where can I find it?

At the moment we are about to reach prototype stage 2.1. Keep an eye on this page, or subscribe to my newsletter to learn more about further developments. 

Who is ‘we’?

That’s our team consisting of director/artist-filmmaker Juul van der Laan, composer Kit Wilmans Fegradoe and creative programmer (v1.0-2.0) Luuk Schipperheyn.

Where have you presented I M U before?

Our very first prototype was presented during a summer of ’22 Kunstavond at WORM, Rotterdam (NL). It was blazing hot at 34 degrees celsius, we had to cool our computer with ice cubes (no joke) – but it worked! And we thank our open minded and involved first audience for their responses to it.
After a short break we developed prototype v2.0 as part of the Winter Sessions residency at V2_
in 2024 (NL). Furthermore Juul was selected to showcase I M U via a presentation at DOKLeipzig 2023 XR conference (DE).
