Vincent Snijders describes his project as follows: Gathering is a ritual that used to take place around a campfire. Now it occurs through ones and zeros, cables, chips and frequencies. Mouse, keyboard and screen have become ceremonial objects for uploading our consciousness to a digital realm. The journey passes through server rooms, data centers and cloud storage space during the data transfer procedure. ‘Cloud Interface Ceremony’ is an immersive experience that explores our relationship with new technology. Acting as a meeting point between us and the flows of information we engage with, it reveals what happens behind our screens. Digital tools and networks extend our bodies and minds, Plugging our lives into an ecosystem of connectivity. Sit down, put on the VR headset and let the ceremony commence.

The Groninger Museum invited Studio Maky to join their new exhibition Kinderbiënnale 2021. This is Netherlands’ first ever Children’s Biennale, a large interactive art exhibition made for and by kids.
Through several workshops and out of all the creative ideas of the children, the floating art installation BathCat and Guppy was born. The basis of this floating object is EPS with different layers of A1 and A1 Triaxial fibre.
Studio Maky build the installation in Rotterdam, but the last part of painting the cat they did with the help of the children in Groningen.
The 3,5 meter floating cat with scuba diving glasses and his fishy friend will be seen on the outside of the Groninger Museum, happy floating in the water, until January 9 2022.
