Rik Lander began his art career as one half of the 1980 video art pioneers, the Duvet Brothers (1984-88). Their work was known as scratch video and took the form of film or TV footage re-edited to subvert its original meaning.

After the Duvets, Rik began focusing on video installations and built a series of them from large, narrative based walk-in installations to small box sized ones. These contained interactivity and triggering. The biggest was Trial By Media (1989), commissioned by the World Wide Video Festival, in Den Haag, Holland. The most recent, Watch For Mystery Pays (2014), is an interactive one armed bandit with a person trapped inside.

In the mid-90’s he began to experiment with interactivity using CDROMs and made a piece called Three Sides to Every Coin (1996), about theoretical physicist F. David Peat. Magic-tree (2001), is a web drama in which the reader is free to explore the narrative only to discover that their free path exactly emulates that of the central character. Much of his work is unified by a consistent experimentation with placing the viewer in a role within the work. In recent years he has brought together the multiple forms of his practice (interactivity, multiscreen, participatory narrative) to create immersive experiences such as Room 11 (This can’t be the place) (2005),  and The Memory Dealer (2010–13), and How to Get to the Top in Digital Drama (2014).
