Carnal Fury – Rafaël Rozendaal
Carnal Fury is one of my websites. I make a lot of websites, and in each piece I try to research something. I don’t know if I should state the obvious, I guess I will. This piece is a vector shape that subtly distorts, like water floating in outer space. The user can manipulate the shape until the blob fills all of the screen… massaging it.
Rafaël Rozendaal is a visual artist who uses the internet as his canvas. His artistic practice consists of websites, installations, drawings, and writing. Spread out over a vast network of domain names, he attracts a large online audience, over 12 million unique visits per year.
His work researches the screen as a pictorial space, reverse engineering reality into condensed bits, in a space somewhere between animated cartoons and paintings. His installations involve moving light and reflections, taking online works and transforming them into a spatial experience.
He also created BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer), an open source DIY
curatorial format that is spreading across the world rapidly.
