You would download a car, of course, we all would. Since the 1980s the entertainment industry has been massively lobbying against what they dubbed piracy—a term that has been firmly established in today’s discourse. But biased terminology cannot hide the fact that copying and stealing are two different thing and with the technical possibilities came downloads and streaming services en masse.

With todays photogrammetric possibilities, a simple video can be enough to create a rudimentary 3d model of objects, places and people. Not only is the world ours but with mankind’s silent conquest of three dimensional space in the form of consumer quad-copters it’s ours for the taking.

Congratulations! Today is your day. Oh, the things you would own. Oh, the places you’d go.

Ever since the iconic Microsoft Bliss, Computer interfaces have had the purpose of immersing us into a comfortable environment.

But why do we need to trick ourselves in order to disregard from the fact that we spend hours in front of technical devices—devices that we are not capable of understanding?

Our addiction to harmony is manifested in this post internet form of escapism.

The images of far away islands distract us from the impending doom of the commodification of the worker in the network society.

The western world is hanging on a single thread, global processes beyond our control are threatening to overthrow the established order and equilibrium.

> The New Right Aesthetic
> Booklet
> Edition of 20
> 2017
> Photos by Katarina Juričić

The New Right Aesthetic documents the discursive and visual aesthetic of the alt-right on the internet with a focus on neo-right-wing meme culture. Formerly anarchistic and left leaning imageboards like 4chan have become a hub for conspiracy theorists and white nationalists alike in recent years. The birthplace of meme culture now produces and strategically places around the internet, racist and sexist propaganda, subversively packaged in the form of jokes or memes. While a deep mistrust of the establishment, general fear of immigration and perceived endangerment of ones status certainly make up the root of these developments, they were only the beginning: revivals of 20th-century fascist pseudo-scientific theories about racial biology and cultural dilution form the fundament for a deeply antisemitic worldview in which zionists are actively committing genocide on the white race.

The users that laid the base for movements like Anonymous just a few years ago now fight a different battle, dubbed the Great Meme war in characteristic fluctuation between dead-seriousness and ridicule. It came to a preliminary climax when the alt-right’s choice candidate Donald Trump won the 2016 US election. The digital inhabitants of 4chan’s political boards, and it’s more extreme offshoots like 8chan claim today that they significantly influenced the outcome of the election in their favour through the deliberate spread of misinformation and, most of all, memes. And studies show that 4chan, one of the most frequently visited websites in the world, has an non-negatable influence on the rest of the internet.

But some claims go even further. Based on a number of considerably odd coincidences, a new occult of chaos has been born on the fringes of these boards. It’s followers claim that memes can not only change public opinion in the form of classical propaganda but reality itself. They claim to have stumbled upon the reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian goddess, the bringer of chaos and light, in the form of a frog meme personified by Donald Trump. Their theories claim that each human thought has the power to change reality, and that collective thought, as it occurs, for example in a meme that is shared miPost too long.

Drenthe aan Zee is a documentary by photographer Jonathan Hielkema for which I developed the accompanying publication together with Carmen Dusmet Carrasco.

Drenthe is one of the only parts in the Netherlands above sea level. In the light of global warming, Hielkema visits the rural area of Drenthe and asks the locals about the imminent changes to the area; will land-locked Drenthe soon have a beach?

The five main questions of the documentary are rhythmically translated into a publication consisting of original copy and Hielkema’s process photography. The book is printed on waterproof Stone Paper and was released in an edition of 50 together with the documentary in January of this year.

See the whole documentary at http://drentheaanzee.nl

Essay about the contemporary implications of Walter Benjamin's The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. Essay posted below.

For this essay I made a typeface called Stolen Traulha Regulara. It's based on Traulha Regulara by Yoann Minet, a typeface I liked but could not afford, so I used the Image Trace function in my (stolen) Adobe Illustrator version to generate shapes from the sample images Yoann Minet posted on his website. The typeface is available for download below. It's not a very good typeface.

Over the course of two months I revisited texts written in the early ages of cyber libertarianism and translated them into a series of video works. Humdog, John Perry Barlow and VNS Matrix all discuss the potential of liberation and democratisation intrinsic to cyberspace, but from very different points of views—and it’s failure. All of their essays were written between 1994 and 1996, in the very early times of the www but their prophetic insights prove to be more relevant than ever today.

In the videos, the texts are viewed through the lens of retro browsers like Netscape, recreated with the help of Rhizomes amazing http://oldweb.today/ and are intercepted by 3D objects that move them into a contemporary context.

Public space has become public order. The airwaves we communicate on are the property of economic entities. Will it soon become illegal to construct buildings with bad network reception? "The Future Is Stupid", in reference to Jenny Holzer's Survival Series from 1983-85, deals with the question of ownership and the relationship between private and public. Who does your phone really belong to?
