WUR Library is currently exhibiting the interactive video artwork I M U by artist Juul van der Laan. I M U is a philosophical essay in images that invites reflection.

About I M U

I M U is an AI film installation that you experience individually: through a mirror and a screen, you become part of a 10-minute video. This artwork has been created by Juul van der Laan and gives a unique opportunity to experience the work of philosopher Mogobe Ramose from South Africa.

I M U (2024) is an interactive film installation in which we manipulate the viewer’s image through deepfake. It’s a personal confrontation with the technology and a meditative intervention on what the self and your self image really are.
Juul van der Laan
