Dekker’s work in film, books, visual art, and virtual reality is distinct and original. The major themes he continues to explore are survival, revenge, spirituality, the nature of society, existential conflict, and the challenge of the unknown. Often manifesting as dark stories from unexpected times and places, Dekker’s rich character worlds draw you in and make the fantastic feel immediate and personal.
Dekker began his journey of merging technology with film in 2002. Based on his photography of The Violent Femmes, Dandy Warhols, and other recording artists Miramax commissioned him to write and direct Closed Circuit a digital companion short to Naqoyqatsi; the final Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass collaboration in their decades-spanning trilogy. Closed Circuit was released online by Miramax and selected for the 2002 Slamdance Film Festival.
In 2004 Dekker created the transmedia thriller series Potter’s Field which launched on Sprint mobile phones and told a narrative across video, text messages, and mobile web photo galleries.
From 2010 to 2011 Dekker explored experience-based art with his wife Julia Howe capturing the internet’s imagination with pop-up restaurant experiences (Kaiju Sushi, L’Aldila), streaming radio networks, and viral products (Tentacle Grape soda). Each experience explored a different theme from the environment to spirituality to sexism and blurred the line between real products and memes. Press outlets around the world openly debated the meaning of the sometimes controversial work. With these open-world art projects Dekker and Julia succeeded in finding unconventional ways to prompt engagement with some of society’s most difficult topics.
