Studio Roosegaarde, an international laboratory for interactive projects in Rotterdam (Holland) and Shanghai, is the home of Daan Roosegaarde (Nieuwkoop, 1979) and his team of designers and engineers. Roosegaarde, after his graduation as an artist, post graduated at the Laboratory of architecture, urbanism and landscape design at the Berlage Institute Rotterdam. The work of Studio Roosegaarde plays a leading role in the Dutch Digital Design movement, that explores the boundaries between the human and technology.
By creating artworks that instinctively respond to sound and movement, Roosegaarde explores the dynamic relation between space, people and technology. His interactive sculptures are tactile high-tech environments in which viewer and space become one. This connection between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls “techno-poetry”.
