Rafaël Rozendaal

°1980, Amsterdam (NL) – lives and works in New York (US)

Rafaël Rozendaal’s artistic practice comprises websites, installations, prints and writing. His work takes shape through a range of transformations – from movement into abstraction, from virtual into physical space, and from website to print – with all of them informing each other. All of his works have one thing in common: they stem from a fascination with moving images and interactivity in their most basic form.

Although Rozendaal is best known for his artworks in the form of websites, he sees no hierarchy between his websites and physical work. He says; “The experience that you have when you are at home using Abstract Browsing on your computer is as authentic as viewing one of the tapestries in a gallery. From my point of view: the Internet is like a waterfall, an exhibition more like an aquarium.”
