Dropstuff.nl is a platform for media art and e-culture that broadcasts artworks by professional artists and designers on a network of Dropstuff Hotspots in (Dutch) museums, libraries, railway stations, schools and art academies. Base camp is the “glass house-pavilion”, a mobile AV-studio space with a gigantic LED screen that travels round various cities.
Dropstuff.nl has been invited to take part in the 53rd International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia as collateral event. From June 2 -7, 2009, during the opening days of the biennale, Dropstuff.nl set up the gigantic 60 square meters LED screen on the pier between San Marco and Giardini (Riva Ca’ di Dio). Dropstuff’s main focus in Venice was to show a new generation of artists and designers, who approach the audience in a direct manner. No white museum walls, but interactive art in public space. By using SMS, bluetooth, touch screen and sensors, the audience was participating in the art work.
