The Amsterdam based artist couple Erwin Driessens (1963 Wessem) and Maria Verstappen (1964 Someren) have worked together since 1990. After their study at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and the Rijksacademy Amsterdam, they jointly developed a multifaceted oeuvre of software, machines and objects. Their research focuses on the possibilities that physical, chemical and computer algorithms can offer for the development of image generating processes.
Driessens & Verstappen participated in numerous exhibitions in galleries and museums, they give lectures and presentations at universities, art academies, festivals and conferences in the Netherlands and abroad. In 1999 and 2001 their Tickle robot projects have been awarded first prize at LIFE, an international competition for Art & Artificial Life. Since 2001 the artists are represented by gallery VOUS ETES ICI.
