The starting point for Space-Modulation is the discovery of the moment at which a two-dimensional image transforms into a three-dimensional space. Vegter shows this on the basis of a pattern of 196 points that move relative to each other. By zooming in and out, he looks for the moments when depth becomes visible.
Bart Vegter― Artist
Bart VEGTER (1940-2011, the Netherlands) was a filmmaker whose works focused on abstract filmmaking. He made his first film in 1981, after participating in the Cineworkshop at the Vrije Academie in The Hague. Vegter was self-taught and was inspired by the attitudes and works of Frans Zwartjes, Paul de Mol and Jacques Verbeek and by watching a lot of experimental films (mainly from the USA). In 1990 he started using self-written computer programmes to generate his films. Bart Vegter lived and worked in Rotterdam.
