Book Launch: Interactive Landscapes

Oct 2010
20:00 to 22:30
location: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

Interactive Landscapes offers a futuristic perspective on everyday reality. Dutch artist and architect Daan Roosegaarde (1979) explores the dawn of a new nature that is evolving from technological innovations by designing interactive landscapes that instinctively respond to sound and movement. Daan Roosegaarde’s remarkable works of art do function as a documentation of the dynamic relations between architecture, people and e-culture. His sculptures Dune, Liquid Space, Flow and Intimacy embody an environment of ‘tactile high-tech’ in which both visitor and the space become one. The connection that is established between design and content, between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls ‘techno-poetry’. 

The book features a series of related interviews conducted by Adele Chong and an engaging essay by design historian and professor Timo de Rijk, this publication presents a complete overview of Roosegaarde’s work, which has been shown at V2_, the Tate Modern, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and at the National Museum in Tokyo, as well as in public spaces all around the world.

The program will feature contributions by Timo de Rijk, Adele Chong (via Skype), Siebe Thissen, Piem Wirtz and of course Daan Roosegaarde.
