Hendrik | Introduction
Hendrik is a Netherlands based artist. A reserved family man, he uses art as an escape to a engage with with his geeky fantasies. He talks to Graff.io Art's about his latest collab in Augmented Reality (AR), "Hunk of Junk"
I guess bringing art to life is an interesting topic to explore. By animating it, you can do so much more - it can be a vehicle for discovery - for example, the viewer could find out more about a cause. it could be nothing more than an exploration of the artform itself.
More & more artists are actually using the physical piece as the starting point and the AR piece as the artwork itself.
I love showing it to kids, as it seems to actively encourage the mystery of life, all those things that can get crushed out of you the longer you are part of this world...
