Interactive Landscapes, Daan Roosegaarde
Enter Second Nature
Don't copy - paste, but copy - morph. —Daan Roosegaarde
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 function as a documentation of the dynamic relations between architecture, people and e-culture. His sculptures Dune, Liquid Space, Flow and Intimacy embody an enviroment of 'tacticle high-tech' in wich both visitor and the space become one. The conection between design and content, between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls 'techno-poetry.'
Featuring 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 Rooseaarde's work, which has been sho at the te Modern, the Victoria AIbert National Museum in London and the National Museum in Tokyo, as well a in public spaces all around the world.
