For the fifth time, DAM is happy to present Summer Splash, a group show traditionally wrapping up the first half of the year.

We are happy to introduce to you for the first time within our program the artistic positions of Arno Beck and ea bertrams. With different approaches, both artists create images where traditional techniques meet digital aesthetics, the virtual and the analog become indistinguishable. Artists of the gallery will present new works, ranging from the hyperrealistic and surreal 3D-animations of Eelco Brand to the interactive, electronical objects of Peter Vogel. Moreover, there will be a reunion with a longtime acquaintance of the gallery and a pioneer of digital art as well as founding member of the Algorists, USA-based artist Jeane-Pierre Hébert, who will be showing plotter drawings.

Arno Beck creates compositions based on typical digital aesthetic, but using analogue techniques.

ea betrams introduces a new series of drawings called “Grid 1”. The three artworks are based on a grid created with Processing and combine delicate hand drawings with elements that are drawn digitally on the screen.

“ZD.movi” by Eelco Brand is a new animated depiction of nature that is equally rhythmical and poetic as it is humorous.

Peter Vogel is featured with three objects from the mid-1990’s that have not been exhibited yet. His aesthetical reliefs react to their viewer and can only truly be experienced by interaction.

Jean-Pierre Hébert presents three of his well-known algorithmical plotter drawings from 1995 and 2001.
