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.

In Christianity the cross symbolizes eternal life, in our digital age a Selfie remains for centuries. #ImmortalNexusRexInstagram investigates the relation between eternal life in the clerical world and the infinite existence of information in the digital world, which results in an object placed in the physical world. The cross as the object is adjusted to our contemporary Selfie culture.
The audience is invited to actively participate by taking Selfies on the cross, and taking photos of the cross, in order to share them on Instagram.
Materials: three mirrors, one spy mirror, surveillance camera incl. software, computer
Dimensions: 90 x90 x 200 cm
Exhibited at Mediamatic Amsterdam in July 2014.
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.
True Selfie Horrors is a lecture about one part of my research on selfies; focusing on hidden layers that might have negative impact on one’s virtual and physical life, including accessibility for everybody to change context and identity, a selfies living their own lives online and the potentially chance of one’s selfie becoming an avatar for a bot.
Performed at Mediamatic Amsterdam, OTIS college for Art and Design, World Design Capital 2014 Cape Town.
Selfie Cinema is an installation for films that allow the audience to embed themselves into other’s narratives.
The first short film featuring the installation entitled „A false paradise“ — a remote romance between ecstatic modern life and the Genesis. The used audio is taken from the TV series „Elementary“.
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
