Bachelor’s Delight is a project by artist Jasmijn Visser in collaboration with designer S†ëfan Schäfer and historian Tristan Mostert, designed for Museum van Loon in 2015.
The exhibition takes shape of a quadriptych, with the website as the first part, together with a poster, digital installation, and objects from the museum’s inventory. These different elements can be viewed separately, but also inform each other. The poster operates as a guide through the website and the installation.
Bachelor’s Delight follows an extensive historical research on the Atlas van Loon by Visser and Mostert. Schäfer and Visser used the museum’s eclectic interior in order to design the project’s visual identity.
The website can be visited at www.bachelorsdelight.com
and includes a download verison of the poster.

Selfie Horror Booth is a mirror cabinet that creates a mise en abyme with oneself taking selfies. The person inside the booth gets multiplied. The booth’s small dimension make people feel comfortable to take selfies. On top a surveillance camera is installed that anyone else can control from a distance on an external computer. After leaving the booth the person will see her/his performance on the external computer and makes then afterwards feel uncomfortable being monitored. It is an allegory to the digitally multiplied self and the loss control online.
In collaboration with Belle Phromchanya.
It seems people were joining the demonstrations for different reasons: demonstrating against the government, or having a good time participating in the political festival. The latter includes another reason: to be seen. A huge amount of people dressed up and took selfie after selfie to an extend that the Thai demonstrations hold the unofficial world record of uploading selfies per day. It almost shut down Instagram.
The revolution´s digital life takes place on facebook and Instagram, partly protesting, partly posing in and with the mob. „Whether they were there to be seen and take selfies or seriously protest the government, there is – of course – now a Facebook page featuring the finest girls of the protest. „Mob Stars“ is now trending and has already collected over 26,000 likes for displaying cute girls and their nationalistic fashion statements.“1

Participating in the Toffie Pop Culture Festival in Cape Town (ZA) we as team Netherlands (students of the Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam) built an installation for pirate-trading, based on the seafaring and trading histoy of the Netherlands and South Africa. The installation consisted of USB sticks, filled with pirate design resources, buoyage, ropes and weigths. The audience could exchange data using the USB sticks and so be part of the pirate-trading.
The first Dutch settlers were sent to the Cape to establish a halfway station to provide fresh water, vegetables, and meat for passing ships traveling to and from Asia. The settlers brought with them trade from Europe and bartered with the locals for their sheep and cattle. As such, the Cape has been instrumental as a point for exchange between the Netherlands and South Africa for centuries. The Dutch delegation’s Pier to Pier project aims to re-establish a relation of exchange by trading design resources from the Old World. Bring your laptops, lower the digital cargo and enjoy free-trade from our pirate-ships.
