Part of an ongoing series, Refract Me, Deflect You (2020) deals with the de-contextualisation of spoken language. A shadow play on formalism and objectivity.
Ruben Kotkamp’s work focuses on the experiential, concerned more with evoking a physical or emotional response rather than an intellectual one. Currently he is most interested in physicality and objectivity in a sonic context. By employing techniques from psychoacoustics, synesthetic art and non-linear composition he is searching for tangibility in a field that is naturally ethereal. His work has been shown and exhibited at Ars Electronica (Lunz, Austria), Gaudeamus Festival (Utrecht, The Netherlands), Finnish Institute (Stockholm, Sweden), International Film Festival Rotterdam (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), SOLU Gallery (Helsinki, Finland) and Maas Theatre (Rotterdam, The Netherlands).
