Giel Sengers loves desolate places. He finds it fascinating to experience how an architect can get more grip on such places. He took the Borinage, a mining region in Belgium Wallonia, as the point of departure for his graduation work and created a tribute to the miners who used to live there.
Marjolein Takman writes stories in which she zooms in on the seemingly normal things that people do. Just like when you put a piece of glass under a microscope, there remains little that’s recognizable as long as you observe well enough.
In her visual work Janneke Donker occupies herself with the online identity. The way in which people present themselves in everyday life may be quite different from the way they present themselves online.
Fashion and textile designer Leonie van Balen frequently uses her knitting machine. By combining knitting techniques with traditional, ethnic weaving techniques, she succeeds in creating surprising fabrics that nevertheless look modern.
As a graphic designer Valerie van Zuijlen has entered into a close relationship with her computer. But who is the boss? Valerie’s motto is: “Cheating is winning”.
Graphic designer Michelle Brouwer surrounds herself and her texts with animals and the constancy of nature.
Simone Atangana Bekono’s work is about the impact of societal stigmas attached to race, physicality, gender and sex, on people’s perception of their environment. What is the immediate effect of generally accepted ideas on someone’s body, patterns of thought and identity?
Casper Notenboom is fascinated by traveling and mobility. The amount of stuff that you take with you determines the volume of the packaging. During a trip, this can increase or decrease. He wants to make maximum use of this movement of growth and shrinkage.
In his work, interactive designer Willem Kempers places dates and computer processes in space. By making the computer move outside the traditional screen, Kempers hopes to be able to make more specific visualizations.
Jorieke Tenbergen. Elements from very different contexts have merged in the garments of her final collection “CAUTION! CONTAMINATED CONTEXT”. Newspaper photos played a major role in the process.
Julia Janssen researches what, besides money, can also be used as currency. In the project “Bank or Online Humanity”, personal data is a commodity that has a currency unit of its own: The data currency. A system in which privacy is a commercial right.
In her collection, Suzan Marijnissen thematizes the subject of discovering, capturing, deploying and visualizing different properties of light. Six window textiles make it possible to experience specific elements of light such as heat, movement and time.
In the project ‘Lost Art: Found Pixels’, graphic designer Berit Smit has merged her interest in the museum world and in photography. A collection of amateur photos in which lost art has been recorded by chance. Her laptop as a museum with Berit as the curator.
