“Nature is paradisiacal, you could say, but it is in fact a jungle… it is one big struggle, one big fight”

Photographer Ruud van Empel was born in Breda, The Netherlands, in 1958. He studied at the St Joost Academy of Art, moving to Amsterdam in the late 1980s to work on his career as a visual artist. As one of the most pioneering and innovative contemporary digital photographers practising today, Ruud’s work is held in the collections of several major galleries and museums around the world and has been extensively exhibited.

“My idea was to construct a photograph that would look ordinary… but where everything was made up”

00100011

00100011. Who am I? Zeroes and ones. A code. For what? A reduction. Why? My distillation into a binary world. Two numbers in a sequence. A sequence? A chain of life. The genome of our universe. The genome of Me.

What used to be down is up. Our footprint, our identity, our stuff. We exist in a cloud rather than on the ground. Technology has tidied us up and hijacked us into an era of post-individualism. Where does that leave Me? Is this why everyone is scrambling to define their identity? Their spirituality? Their network? How do We fit into this new sequence? What do Our zeroes and ones add up to? What do our interconnected digital footprints mean for our future?

But is it Art? Is it Important art? Will it stand the test of Time? Is it worth the Ask? Will I be able to sell it for More? Who decides if it’s Art? Who tells us if the Brillo Box is significant, or just derivative of the Soup Can? Who’s in Charge here? Hello??
