|Peter Luining||Contributing Writer (Amsterdam, NL)||
Peter Luining studied contemporary philosophy in the mid 80's. After his study he became active in the Amsterdam vj-scene. He started fiddling with computers, and made 3D animations in commercial jobs. He also directed video- clips. Unsatisfied with commercial jobs and his role of only doing images and video with music made by others he started to combine video with his own music. In 1995 the character of his work changes dramatically when he discovers the net and the relative easy way interactivity could be achieved by using webpages. After doing some obscure net performances, Luining first got international recognition with his work "clickclub", which he presented at the Transmediale festival in Berlin. This netpiece distinguised itself from nearly everthing at that time because of the way the user could and could not interact with its sounds and images. Since 1997 Luining's work is turning towards a kind of minimalism, while maintaining his earlier research of the dynamics of the net. A sidestep from his artwork, but still a further exploration of art on the net, was his work as the curator of the net.art exhibition "Net Affects" in spring 2000. Since then Peter Luining's work is changing from aesthetical to more formalistic and conceptual.
