Alex van Giersbergen
Alex van Giersbergen makes computer- and electronic- based works that focus on indirect or unusual interaction with the viewers. The works try to make a semi-functional translation of every day experiences and actions. The aim is to break the patterns in peoples behaviour by playfully attracting their attention and have them experience common principles in a new way.
