Potator Performances May 23, 2014
DEAF / Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam

Specially for the Dutch Electronic Art Festival 2014, PIPS:lab will take over the library of Het Nieuwe Instituut with their Potator Performances.

In these sessions you might witness the creation of an aircraft, a un inscrutable choreography by two men and a camera and we will take you to at least one other dimension.

In these performances PIPS:lab puts itself recklessly caught between painting, theatre, games, choreography and cinema. 

May 23 at 7pm and 9pm

May 24 freestyle potator jam at the closing night after 11pm



The Potator is the latest invention of PIPS:lab. The Potator makes it possible to paint in 3D with visual peels of reality, by combining the qualities of a vegetable peeler with that of a brush. The handy tool scans everything that appaers in its visual range; objects, textures or backgrounds - thereby always aware of its own position. With the photographical strips the user of the Potator can paint  spatially or sculpt virtually. The visual output manifests itself as a photo or augmented reality: reality functions as paint and canvas at the same time. The Potator brings together painting, sculpting and movement, and challenges its users to shape reality…

DieSpace 3.0 [option] Jun 07-14, 2014
Theaterszene Europe 2014, Cologne, Germany



What do you want to do when you’re dead?

Hyves, Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, LinkedIn – it’s almost a full-time job keeping up with all these online communities, updating your profile, sending messages and uploading your latest best photos. And now tech-theatre group PiPS:lab wants us to join another one: DieSpace. There is one prerequisite though: you have to be dead to join. Because of the fast ‘greyification’ of our society, the number of people dying will be increasing rapidly. And dead people don’t have a place to socialize yet… PiPS:lab jumped at this great business opportunity and created DieSpace: “the first active internet community for the diseased”.

Each visitor of their show will get a free DieSpace light account to start out with. So from now on, there’s only one thing to fear after death: whether or not you’ll make enough friends on DieSpace. / Annelies Termeer

The proportional amount of elderly people (65+) in the world will increase dramatically in the near future. This cause of events is what PIPS:lab call Greyification. And in it they see an enormous possibility for commercial self-enrichment.

Thus they create DieSpace.nl: the first internet community for those in the Afterlife.

With granny’s skateboarding on walking frames, musical wheelchairs, many laptops, camera’s and light sensors PIPS:lab presents an interactive and song soaked show about life after death. 

You have a death wish but are hesitant to pursue your dream? With DieSpace you can leave your life and loved ones behind with complete peace of mind!

Co-produced by Melkweg-Paradiso Productiehuis

DieSpace is supported by the Fonds voor Amateurkunst en Podiumkunsten, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunsten, Prins Bernhard Cultuur Fonds and VSB Fonds

Social Fiction Nov 19, 2014
Theatre Junction GRAND, Calgary [CANADA]

photo: Szilvi Toth

 

Social Fiction a multimedia theatre performance where science fiction meets social media. 

Every day all social media ask us to provide a lot of input, also private information. And we give it. We give everything. Simply because we want to use these services to be able to share, tag and follow online. Like our friends. We loose most of our rights on this information – many times without knowing it. Let alone that we’re beware of the potential abuse.

In Social Fiction the personification of social media extorts information and even physical appearances from the performers and the audience. People are followed and scanned. Text messages get published and fall apart: seemingly meaningless, but forever saved and traceable. All the collected and constructed elements in the show are three dimensionally composed with our Potator tools in a motion capture installation. Social Fiction is a sequence of acts and actions filled with funky music and a unique solo on recorder. It results in a grand finale that breaks the boundaries between theatre, cinema and videogames.

Lumalive is a visual show where we draw with light and create stunning visuals again following the PIPS:lab philosophy of no pre-recorded material and where all the technical manipulation is done live on stage. For these performances PIPS:lab create a great and musically inspired show, however we always end the set by handing out lights and letting the audience draw for a while to create the visuals. Normally these shows are combined with our own DJ's from Rednosedistrikt, but we could also collaborate with local DJ's.

Yvonne Jan 29, 2014
Theater ins Blau, Leiden



With little rituals Daan celebrates his love for Yvonne. He puts her in a doll house, covers the table with her dishes and wears her clothes. It's the little things that are important to him.

But in the outside world Daan misses this spell. Nobody sees Yvonne like he does. What Daan finds disturbing is that no one talks about their own domestic happiness, which Daan is sure the whole world is about.
 
To address this issue Daan employs the technological arsenal of his multi-media group PIPS: lab. A crazed rotary dryer, instantly remixed video clips, a laser show and much more. Meanwhile, he sings self-written evergreens like 'Sokkenbollen' and 'Ik doe graag de was voor jou'. Finally Daan even invites his musical friends to shout his love for the domestic from the rooftops.
'Yvonne' is a mercilessly performed charm offensive in the theatre. Daan van West directs the eyes of the audience inwards, to the love that dwells there.

Potator Oct 26-27, 2013
24H Noord, locatie Overhoeks, Amsterdam



The Potator is the latest invention of PIPS:lab. The Potator makes it possible to paint in 3D with visual peels of reality, by combining the qualities of a vegetable peeler with that of a brush. The handy tool scans everything that appaers in its visual range; objects, textures or backgrounds - thereby always aware of its own position. With the photographical strips the user of the Potator can paint  spatially or sculpt virtually. The visual output manifests itself as a photo or augmented reality: reality functions as paint and canvas at the same time. The Potator brings together painting, sculpting and movement, and challenges its users to shape reality…

Half/half paintings Oct 11, 2013
TADAEX, Tehran IRAN

first halfhalf painting in PIPSlab

Together with Thomas Bratzke, we created the new art discipline half/half  paintings. These paintings are partly for real and partly in augmented reality. Looking at the painting you can see the craftmanship of the painter, if you keep your iPad in front of it, a second virtual layer appears. We can describe it, but you should actually see it for yourself! Check out the video in pics and media.

DieSpace 3.0 Sept 27-29, 2013
Beijing International Fringe Festival, Beijing, CHINA



What do you want to do when you’re dead?

Hyves, Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, LinkedIn – it’s almost a full-time job keeping up with all these online communities, updating your profile, sending messages and uploading your latest best photos. And now tech-theatre group PiPS:lab wants us to join another one: DieSpace. There is one prerequisite though: you have to be dead to join. Because of the fast ‘greyification’ of our society, the number of people dying will be increasing rapidly. And dead people don’t have a place to socialize yet… PiPS:lab jumped at this great business opportunity and created DieSpace: “the first active internet community for the diseased”.

Each visitor of their show will get a free DieSpace light account to start out with. So from now on, there’s only one thing to fear after death: whether or not you’ll make enough friends on DieSpace. / Annelies Termeer

The proportional amount of elderly people (65+) in the world will increase dramatically in the near future. This cause of events is what PIPS:lab call Greyification. And in it they see an enormous possibility for commercial self-enrichment.

Thus they create DieSpace.nl: the first internet community for those in the Afterlife.

With granny’s skateboarding on walking frames, musical wheelchairs, many laptops, camera’s and light sensors PIPS:lab presents an interactive and song soaked show about life after death. 

You have a death wish but are hesitant to pursue your dream? With DieSpace you can leave your life and loved ones behind with complete peace of mind!

The Haunted House is dark. The Haunted House is a confrontation with yourself. Much more can not be said without spoiling it. We can only warn. A visit to the Haunted House is an intelligent, psychological anxiety experience…

If you are not afraid of a life changing experience …

If you dare to lose complete control …

If you have the courage to get lost in your inner-self…

Social Fiction Aug 09-13, 2013
Parade, Amsterdam

Social Fiction a multimedia theatre performance where science fiction meets social media. 

Every day all social media ask us to provide a lot of input, also private information. And we give it. We give everything. Simply because we want to use these services to be able to share, tag and follow online. Like our friends. We loose most of our rights on this information – many times without knowing it. Let alone that we’re beware of the potential abuse.

In Social Fiction the personification of social media extorts information and even physical appearances from the performers and the audience. People are followed and scanned. Text messages get published and fall apart: seemingly meaningless, but forever saved and traceable. All the collected and constructed elements in the show are three dimensionally composed with our Potator tools in a motion capture installation. Social Fiction is a sequence of acts and actions filled with funky music and a unique solo on recorder. It results in a grand finale that breaks the boundaries between theatre, cinema and videogames.

Yvonne July 27-27, 2013
De Karavaan, Egmond aan Zee



With little rituals Daan celebrates his love for Yvonne. He puts her in a doll house, covers the table with her dishes and wears her clothes. It's the little things that are important to him.

But in the outside world Daan misses this spell. Nobody sees Yvonne like he does. What Daan finds disturbing is that no one talks about their own domestic happiness, which Daan is sure the whole world is about.
 
To address this issue Daan employs the technological arsenal of his multi-media group PIPS: lab. A crazed rotary dryer, instantly remixed video clips, a laser show and much more. Meanwhile, he sings self-written evergreens like 'Sokkenbollen' and 'Ik doe graag de was voor jou'. Finally Daan even invites his musical friends to shout his love for the domestic from the rooftops.
'Yvonne' is a mercilessly performed charm offensive in the theatre. Daan van West directs the eyes of the audience inwards, to the love that dwells there.
