Gerald Van Der Kaap lives and works in the Netherlands. His works have appeared in many museums, galleries, and contemporary art biennales throughout the world, and been widely published. He is currently working on transforming a new waste incinerator near the town of Enschede, the Netherlands, into a permanent real-time poetry converter. The data from the incinerator’s mainframe computer are translated into “radical data,” or poetry, wich are then displayed on a huge media gate.
