Franchise Freedom
Franchise Freedom is een performatieve kunstinstallatie van DRIFT die de relatie tussen mens, natuur en technologie onderzoekt. Een autonoom vliegende zwerm van honderden drones stelt het menselijke concept van vrijheid en sociale constructie in vraag. Het nodigt je uit om een ​​poëtische kant van technische innovatie te bekijken en terug te verbinden met de natuur. Gebaseerd op een biologisch algoritme van meer dan 10 jaar onderzoek naar het vlieggedrag van spreeuwen, verlegt het kunstwerk de grenzen tussen natuur en technologie en genereert het een impactvolle sociale verbinding.

Betonsturm
Auf den ersten Blick erleben die Besucher feste Formen, die sich auf minimalistische Motive stützen und die stabilen Eigenschaften von Beton unterstreichen. Während des Tragens der HoloLens betreten die Betrachter eine gemischte Realität, die durch reaktionsschnelle Hologramme belebt wird, die die physische Umgebung der Installation erweitern. Mit Concrete Storm erforscht DRIFT die Schicht zwischen den parallelen Welten, wobei die reale und die virtuelle Welt nebeneinander existieren. Die Aufmerksamkeit der Menschen wird nun ständig zwischen diesen beiden Welten aufgeteilt, in denen sie koexistieren. Die Künstler glauben, dass sie durch die Kombination dieser beiden scheinbar getrennten Welten die unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten der unaufhaltsamen Evolution untersuchen können. Concrete Storm erweitert die Grenzen der digitalen Welt, befreit von Bildschirmen und integriert in das Gewebe der physischen Existenz.

Der Orpheus
Die Künstlerin Lonneke Gordijn hat zusammen mit der Regisseurin Monique Wagenmakers und der Choreografin Nanine Linning eine neue Interpretation von Der Orpheus geschaffen. Die speziell für Der Orpheus entwickelte kinetische Skulptur EGO ist ein handgewebter Block, der von Algorithmen und Motoren gesteuert wird. Der Block hat die Fähigkeit, seine Form und seinen Zustand zu ändern und Orfeos Perspektiven und Gedanken zu verkörpern. Die älteste Oper kombiniert mit moderner Spitzentechnologie.

Concrete Storm
On first impression, visitors experience solid forms, which draw on minimalist motifs and underscore the stable properties of concrete. While wearing the HoloLens, viewers enter a mixed reality, enlivened by responsive holograms that augment the physical environment of the installation. With Concrete Storm, DRIFT explores the layer between the parallel worlds, whereby the real and the virtual worlds co-exist. People’s attention is now constantly divided between these two worlds in which they coexist. The artists believe that combining these two seemingly separate worlds they can study the unlimited possibilities of the unstoppable evolution. Concrete Storm expands the boundaries of the digital world, freed from screens, and integrated into the fabric of physical existence.

L’Orfeo.
Dutch National Touring Opera’s production of L’Orfeo.
Artist Lonneke Gordijn, together with director Monique Wagenmakers and choreographer Nanine Linning, created a new interpretation of L’Orfeo.
The kinetic sculpture EGO, specially developed for LOrfeo, is a handwoven block controlled by algorithms and motors. The block has the ability to shift its shape and state, embodying Orfeo’s perspectives and thoughts. The oldest opera combined with modern cutting edge technology.

In 20 Steps
Amsterdam based Studio Drift has created In 20 Steps, an installation of moving glass bars, arranged in pairs and moving at different times to each other creating an impression of wings slowly flapping.In 20 Steps is a tribute to the human desire to be able to fly, despite the force of gravity and the poetry of persistence in the face of adversity. Studio Drift is intrigued by the continuous attempts of humankind to deal with its limitations, so miraculously opposed to nature as these ventures might be.

Syntopia
For Syntopia, Van Herpen collaborates with the artists Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta of Studio Drift, whose biomimic art works translate natural processes by breathing life into delicate immersive sculptures through movement[…] The vivacious glass bird flows in symbiosis with the models while they move over the runway, their delicate interaction emphasizes the fragility of new worlds living and soaring together.

Ghost Chair

The GHOST collection by Studio DRIFT is a futuristic concept of a chair, a 3D image captured within the boundaries of its outer shell. The chairs are handmade by specialists from Europe using the best materials. A unique 3D technique is used to form unusual subsurface drawings inside the solid Plexiglass chairs. The image of the inner ghost is created by a reflection of light on tiny air bubbles.

Rising Awareness
Could one succeed in rising the level of awareness by sharpening one’s perception rather than repeating the vapid catchphrase, “raising awareness,” which has been coopted by an ever-growing money-raising industry that fails to improve our circumstances in a substantive way? Wearing a cocktail dress, I assembled a large kinetic structure made of wooden beams and ladders in front of the audience. I then walked and balanced on the twenty-foot wide structure at eight feet off the floor. Rising Awareness addresses my ongoing preoccupations about the physicality of experience, inhabiting the body, proprioception as the possible strongest sense of self, how spatial awareness correlates with overall awareness and self-awareness, how physicality enhances creativity, finding balance between gravity and groundlessness, a concept of happiness as the fullest expression of one’s particular cognitive potential, pushing boundaries, and the current irreverent politics of liability.

Höweler + Yoon Architecture / MY Studio is a multidisciplinary practice, operating in the space between architecture, art, and landscape. They believe in an embodied experience of architecture, seeing media as material and its effects as palpable elements of architectural speculation. While their work lies at the intersection of the conceptual and the corporeal, they are committed to both the practice-of and prospects-for architecture. Engaged in projects of all scales, they are interested in the material realities and material effects of their work. From concept to construct they are determined to realize the built idea and to test projects through the dynamic interaction between the construct and the larger public.
