M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste échte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

Guy Rombouts is a fanatical collector of all kinds of objects and materials. He continually explores the delicate nature of found – often natural – materials, using them to explore the sculptural possibilities for his script. In this way, he makes his language tangible, and investigates the link between form and content, sign and meaning. In this installation, X of Y, his feeling for materials is prominently displayed. He presents a three-dimensional display of the letters X and Y. In the Azart (the alternative lettering system developed by Guy Rombouts and Monica Droste) these letters are actually replaced by a straight line, referring to the X or Y axis.
