|DDW 18 – 26/10
Klokgebouw, EindhovenAarhus until – 14/11
|The starting point for the installation was the combination of two intriguing phenomena. On the one side it is colour and its physical quality and on the other side it is the element of motion and its dynamic nature. To unite these qualities the electric fan has been chosen as a tool. Placed on a podium a group of fans will show their different states by performing a choreography blending colour and motion.The isntallation is developed for LYNfabrikken BOX and will be on show there until November 14th.
One of the Fans can also be seen during Dutch Design Week at ‚Design in Full Colour‘ curated by Scholten & Baijings.

|Photogrpahy & New Project
Dutch Invertuals ‚Cohesion‘
18 – 26 October
Fuutlaan 12b, Eindhoven
|The photo series created to be used as pr material during the Dutch Design Week. All the participants are covered with perforated sheet material. The size of perforations determine the detailing of the person behind each screen. The used materials are steel, aluminum, Mdf en textile. By overlapping the different structures moiré effects have been created.Interline Panels
Raw Color created curtains that enable the user to generate a more or less transparent surface. By sliding one of the two panels, the horizontal and vertical stripes shift into each other. Based on the principle of interlinear overlap graphical patterns appear. The panels are made from see through textile combined with opaque foil.
