RAFAËL ROZENDAAL / newrafael.com



Rafaël Rozendaal is a visual artist who uses the internet as his canvas. His artistic practice consists of websites, installations, drawings, writings, and lectures. Spread out over a vast network of domain names, his projects attract over forty million visits per year. Rozendaal’s work explores the screen as a pictorial space, reverse-engineering reality into condensed bits—into a space somewhere between animated cartoons and paintings. His installations involve moving light and reflections, taking online works and transforming them into spatial experiences. He has also created BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer), an open-source, DIY curatorial format that is spreading across the world rapidly. 

Rozendaal’s work has been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Venice Bienniale; Valencia Biennial; Casa Franca Brasil, Rio de Janeiro; TSCA Gallery, Tokyo; Seoul Art Square; NIMk, Amsterdam; and the Stedelijk Museum project space, Amsterdam. His work has been published in Time magazine, the Wall Street JournalFlash ArtDazed & ConfusedInterviewWiredPurpleMcSweeney’sO GloboVice, the Creators ProjectArtreviewMetropolis M+81La Repubblica, and Vogue. He has lectured at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut; DLD, Munich; AIT, Tokyo; École des Beaux Arts, Paris; New York University; Here, London; and Vivid, Sydney; among others.
