DigitalBroadway presents Rafael Rozendaal


 
 
If you’ve ever sat in the Broadway Cafebar you can’t have helped but notice the large screen projector on the back wall and the curiously hypnotic images that are projected onto it. 

Broadway dedicate this screen, and the slightly smaller screen in the Mezz Bar upstairs, to their digital arts programme, DigitalBroadway. Showcasing projects, presentations, commissions and initiatives as well as supporting and offering a platform for local artists. Throughout October and the first week of November the screens have been handed over to the innovative and eccentric Dutch/Brazilian artist, Rafael Rozendaal.
 
Born in 1980, Rafael Rozendaal is, some might say, obsessed with the internet – so much so that he has the word ‘internet’ tattooed under his bottom lip. Stupid, maybe. Painful, probably. Still, what does that matter when his mind creates vibrant and surreal places on the world wide web that he has been sharing with everyone since 2001.  
 
 
 The man - the tattoo
Describing his computer as “…a space, a world, a landscape; its screen has more dimensions than in real life; in a browser window you can look further than in a real window” his websites are flash based animations full of colour and movement that draw you away from reality yet make you consider reality at the same time. The websites he has created are always in the public domain even when collectors have purchased them giving an access to art that is rarely found in modern times. 
 
In the true spirit of his work, the exhibition has an internet based interactive element on the Broadway website, Play, that he has uniquely designed for the project and will be changed every week.You can find out more about the man and his works direct from the source as he will be giving an informal presentation of his works in the Mezz Bar on Thursday 28 October with a free poster on offer to all attending. 
 
 
 

Rafael Rozendaal will be at Broadway on Thursday 28 October – booking essential. His works are on show in the Cafebar until Tuesday 5 November.
