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
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.
