‘Interactive Landscapes‘ offers a futuristic perspective on every-day reality. This first book by 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 innovative works of art are a dynamic fusion of architecture, people, and e-culture. His sculptures, such as Dune, Liquid Space, Flow, en Intimacy, form tactile high-tech environments in which the viewer and the space become one. This link between design and content, between ideology and technology, is what Roosegaarde calls ‘techno-poetry’.
Roosegaarde plays a leading role in the innovative Dutch art movement New Digital Design, artists that the boundary between human and computer studies. Like Dune, an interactive dunes consisting of hundreds of LED lights. Recently he presented Lotus 7.0 a ‘living’ wall in Paris.
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.
