In preparation for his residency, Cesar Harada visited V2_Lab last week. Together with Etienne Gernez and Henrik Rudstrøm, he built this test model for Protei, in which the basic principles of an inflatable, articulated hull were tested. Constructed from low-cost materials, the model sailed the Maas successfully.
We are very proud to introduce the team of engineers, designers and collaborators who will work on the development of Protei 006 during summer 2011, here at V2_Lab.
Digital media artist-designer, theorist and curator Valérie Lamontagne — presently doing a 4 month PhD stage on "Performativity, Materiality and Laboratory Practices in Artistic Wearables" at V2_ — recently interviewed V2_Lab’s Piem Wirtz, for Fashioning Technology.
From the beginning of Herman Asselberghs’s project 'Dear Steve', a video letter to Steve Jobs in which a MacBook Pro is taken apart, the artist wanted to make an installation out of the laptop’s components. He called it 'P.S.': A Postscript to Steve Jobs. In P.S., the viewer sees the MacBook Pro’s parts displayed in hundreds of small clear plastic bags hanging from the ceiling.
