This new book 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 ‘techno-poetry’.
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.
