“The Wandering Womb is an animated three-dimensional virtual reality world that explores world-making ideas. The viewer becomes the protagonist on a moving image journey through creation narratives and rendered theoretical physics.

“In the opening sequence, the viewer is positioned to take up a God’s-eye view of an emerging planetary sphere, a sandy globe with clouds and rock formations slowly spinning into existence. The viewer descends to inhabit the world from an ant’s-eye view, and the sky is screened by a thicket of grass. A philosophical question of perspective frames this scene: is reality to be comprehended as a whole, or through human consciousness?

“Pausing for a moment to consider the ant, we then fall into one of its eyes, travelling fast and as if through a wormhole or a model of a multiverse theory. Creature images, perhaps fragments of creation narratives, pass by. We spiral onwards towards a cosmic centre — a rendered womb/cave and microcosm/macrocosm reflection.

“The viewer’s virtual journey then settles within an earth-like cave. We are placed in front of a small crackling fire; light flickers on the dusty floor and rough-hewn walls. A cut-out relief, perhaps another model of the universe, comes into shadowy view. This seems like Plato’s cave and we are left again with a philosophical question on the nature of interpretation versus reality.”

UDIV&IDNI (2023)

UDIV & IDNI is a visually charged trip with room for experimentation and interpretation. The performance mixes elements, tendencies and experiences from our living world in a speculative universe with fiction, movement, light, costumes, Sound, scenography and video mapping. Fokovisme challenges the audience to question and take a look at transhumanism that seeks to push the boundaries of the universe and one’s own life.

A Garden of Heavenly Delight (2022)


“Beneath the terrifying images that theater maker Luit Bakker creates with virtual artist Pleun Gremmen and Noémi Biró, there is a deeply hidden reality of hatred and intolerance against everything that is queer. Together with director Lotte Bos, they emphasize parts of the world we live in. Luit takes us to three different worlds that are created physically and digitally. Propelled by deep beats, you travel through dark worlds and infinite possibilities. In this way you start looking for what the future should be.”

   — promo text (translated from Dutch)

“Thanks to the unpredictable twists and turns and the alienating digital worlds of Pleun Gremmen and Noémi Biró that serve as a backdrop, A garden of heavenly delights offers the synthesis between celebration and mourning that Van Saarloos has in mind.”

   — NRC (translated from Dutch)

“The motion capture that is used gives Luit the ability to transform, which provides the solo with a colorful range of characters. The imaginative worldview resonates with the futurism of the virtual scenography. And therefore it seems inevitable that this performance was created with exactly this technology.”

   — theaterkrant (translated from Dutch)

“Bold and witty, this sensual demon, feminine octopus woman, who utters annoying millennial language (“I feel superblessed”) and worships her womb. Lavering among her colourful characters, cleverly created by virtual artists Pleun Gremmen and Noémi Biró, you gradually begin to wonder what Bakker wants to tell us next. Then she begins an anecdote about a party in a new housing development, where a feeling of loneliness overcomes her, the only lesbian.”

Hacktalk (2017-2022)
Live talkshow visuals for hackers-community in the Netherlands, WORM Rotterdam

“Hack Talk is een podium waar we het brede publiek laten zien dat hackers heel aardige mensen kunnen zijn en aan hackers laten zien dat gewone mensen ook interessant kunnen zijn. We praten over het maken en breken van informatietechnologie, kritisch op wat misgaat en aandacht voor wat wel goed gaat. Op z’n Rotterdams, oftewel niet lullen maar patchen.

“Hack Talk wordt georganiseerd door DIVD, het Dutch Institute for Vulnerability Disclosure, waar hackers als vrijwilligers het hele internet scannen op kwetsbaarheden en die melden bij degenen die het kunnen fixen. Presentator van Hack Talk is DIVD directeur Chris van ’t Hof. VJ Pleun Gremmen verzorgt de beelden en diverse artiesten de muziek. Locatie is Club Worm, het Rotterdamse Instituut voor avantgardistische recreatie. Zij doen de techniek, muziek, beelden, inschrijving en werving van performers. We werken samen met de hacker community om onderwerpen, demo’s, acts en andere leuke dingen op het podium te krijgen.” –
