Between Science and Fiction |

Einstein’s theory on locality has been proven wrong. Quantum physicists at the TU Delft have announced that so called ‘entanglement’ of particles at a large distance exists.

But until last […]

Since […]

Transit Mantra – Prototype |

Preliminary phase of the project; building + testing the prototype and designing the interaction. The installation is an interactive swarm, fed by movements of people walking by. Its modules are then activated, and start to form a pattern of light and soft electronic sound. The interaction is a direct reaction to the character of the movement. When a lone pedestrian […]

Spatial moving object designed for the open atrium in the city hall in Eindhoven. The installation bends incoming natural light and reflects changing colour patterns on floor and walls of the building. Abstract stained glass modules react like a flock of birds on changing situations in the space. In the city hall, people come for passports, drivers licences and other civil […]

A design for the ‘circus of thoughts’, a show in theater Carre Amsterdam. The dancers’ movements are connected through technology, expressing an enlighted thought. The ornaments light up whenever the dancers touch certain connection points on their own or each others body, enlighting their performing space.
