Rafaël Rozendaal is a visual artist who uses the internet as his canvas. His websites attract 50 million visits per year. He also creates installations, tapestries, lenticulars, haiku, lectures, and a podcast. He was one of the first artists who sold his website as an art object to collectors. Besides that he initiated BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer), an exhibition format where the participants are asked to bring their own beamer and beam their work on every wall to find. This concept is known around the world and frequently organised in all kinds of places. In the upcoming lecture Rafaël Rozendaal will talk about his practice and the way he uses internet. Since 2000 Rozendaal is working as an artist, working with browsers, users, numbers, exhibitions, objects, and all are approached in a similar way of working.
