HAS A MIND THAT NEVER STOPS
Alyster and Crystal are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but replace the violence with glitter and your picture is complete. As one and the same person they concoct serious art on the one hand and make sassy 3D visuals on the other hand, trying to bring this together into one experience. The question is: who's winning?
Crystal is the person Alyster could have been, if they would have made choices differently. Still, she is very close to Alyster. She has always been there, like an egg cell that hadn't been fertilised. Alyster believes everyone has this kind of potential: with a bit of soul searching you will notice you could’ve been - and still can be - completely someone else, no matter where your life is at.
Alyster builds interactive works that trigger the senses. Nowadays the mass in cities lives fast, rarely stopping, rarely looking around and reflecting on their behaviour and that of others. Sometimes, it's like we have forgotten silence. With my work I am detaching the senses, putting it on display to ourselves in order to review them again. Alyster lives for new experiences, skills, ideas, etc., it's the mere fuel of existence. Without it, we are just a vessel.
