AlexP (NL)

Unlike ordinary lightpainting, the interactive lightpainting installation Sym lets you instantly see the results of what you paint with your smartphone or torch. While painting, symmetrical shapes are generated, which are instantly projected in bright colours. The installation has different settings, which means the appearance of the light drawing keeps changing and regularly takes on a different character.

AlexP consists of Alex Prooper (1963, NL) and Simone van Dam (1973, NL). Their digital media art, mostly interactive, can be seen at festivals around the world. AlexP combines ingenious, self-developed software with attractive visuals and a touch of humour. Their human-scale video mappings are particularly popular.
