Niels Sinke invites you to the opening of his exhibition ‘Bits Touching Bytes’, where he will show a selection of his hand-drawn illustrations and digital renditions of said work.

The red line that connects the works is of a technological nature. One that either touches biology, augmenting the human body, or the pressure that technology puts on society. This intersection of technology with other fields is where the cross-pollination occurs.

At first glance a bold picture is presented, soon after you’re invited to go over the smaller details with their different textures. It asks for active participation in unravelling the meaning, in order to unearth the structures that connect the work and bringing these invisible processes to the forefront. Hunched over a piece of paper the illustrations come to life, the end of drawing is usually signified by a crack and straightening of the back.

The intent is not to single out technology, but to show that it is fully interwoven in daily life. By connecting both the smallest and the biggest ideas, weaving the outermost edges of a bell-curve together and showing the good and the bad that technology can pose for us. Now and in the future.

Niels Sinke (1992) graduated from the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in 2018 and is now active as an illustrator, podcast maker and tech enthusiast. His favourite pastime is wandering through a vast landscape of ideas and being situated in the middle of it all.
