two-channel video installation
16:9 full HD, 50p, 33:01 min
This two-channel video installation captures the Netherlands’ current, yet futuristic, landscape through a purely cinematographic approach. The machines fill the space with images and sound and gradually the viewer see more and more interaction between man and the machine. The image rhyme emphasises both contrasts and similarities, and, at times, creates subtle absurdities. Sound plays an important role in this; the cadence of the machines together forms a new sound. Walking through the space, you experience the sounds of the different landscapes differently each time — thanks to the Dolby surround effect — and they tell the same story in different ways. The images and sound tell the story.

Simulated scent of a tomato greenhouse
O'dor Aroma Diffuser, a bespoke scent
In van Duppen’s youth, her family would often drive from Tilburg to ‘het Westland’, entering a landscape replete with greenhouses. On these visits to her maternal aunt and uncle, who had an anthurium (floral) business, she never failed to explore their greenhouses. As a child, she remembers the excitement of the unknown landscapes; her senses triggered by the heat, humidity and smell.
Mirte van Duppen commissioned Algortimic Perfumery to capture the smellscape of a tomato greenhouse. This particular memory — a scent memory, is part of AgriValley Hotels, the video installation designed to engage multiple senses because images alone could never do the experience justice.
