Roel Roscam Abbing

2016

€25.000
Roel Roscam Abbing graduated in 2014 with an MA in Networked Media from the Piet Zwart Institute. His practice is active on the interface between art, design and theory, whereby the significance of technology as social phenomenon forms the springboard. The projects find expression in a variety of ways including installation, text, software, workshop or photography. Roscam Abbing’s development plan focuses on making new work and on internationalizing and professionalizing his practice. To realize this, the maker will collaborate with the artist Melle Smets and give presentations in institutions outside the Netherlands. Finally Roscam Abbing will explore where his practice can provide added value outside the art and culture sector.

Ineke Hans - Studio|Salon

Ineke Hans, 2016

€25.000
Designer Ineke Hans (b. The Netherlands, 1966) initiated the Studio|Salon project in London in 2015. Her goal is to study the future position of furniture and the changing role of the designer in an international context. This multi-year programme includes a series of expert meetings, Q & A sessions, presentations and public XLSalons, in which Dutch design practice is mirrored against the British design mentality. During her stay in London, Hans has built up a solid international network of designers, manufacturers, commissioners, curators and writers. With the grant she wants to complete her large-scale study. The outcomes and findings will result in a presentation at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The reports and audio recordings from the salons will also be published on a website. The selection of Hans was motivated by her unique position and network within London’s design world, which she exploits in a convincing manner to connect Dutch talent with the international market.

Moniek Driesse - A Drop of Water on a Hot Plate

Moniek Driesse, 2016

€25.000
Moniek Driesse (b. Strijen, 1983) is conducting socio-spatial research into the water infrastructure in Mexico City, which is under pressure because of urban development. Driesse wants to visualize the social consequences of this spatial process and broach the topic of the city’s complex water issues among the local population. In this regard she is cooperating with the Autoridad del Espacio Público (AEP), responsible for the strategic planning and development of public space in Mexico City, and with the Dutch design office de Urbanisten. These parties have previously conducted a large-scale study into the city’s water problems. Driesse will employ the maps, illustrations, photos, diagrams and other visual materials from this report as input for her socio-spatial analysis. Driesse will also be establishing contact with local stakeholders and residents. By means of workshops and a temporary intervention in the district of Iztapalapa, she will chart and visualize the testimony of local residents. Other partners include 100 Resilient Cities, a project that increases the resilience of cities, and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Mexico. The results will be published in a Spanish-English publication and a presentation in the context of the World Design Capital programme, which is being staged in Mexico City in 2018.

Studio Gabriel A. Maher - Seductive Criticism

Gabriel A. Maher, 2016
Gabriel A. Maher gained her Master in Social Design from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2014. With a background in interior architecture and design education, her practice primarily concentrates on relationships between body and structure and an interest in objects and systems. Her methodology is to create situations where research and design converge in performance. Questioning design practices through queer and feminist frameworks has become a core position and approach. With the grant Maher will broaden her ongoing research to explore ties between digital representations of the body, the development of identity and the production of human subjectivity in greater depth. In this regard she will cooperate with the digital platform dazeddigital.comwhich will serve as a case study. Together with Jefferson Hack (media theorist), Alice Rawsthorn (design critic) and the Dazed team, Maher has developed digital technology – ‘Seductive Criticism’ – with which the body, as represented on digital platforms, can be dissected and analysed. Maher hopes to employ this to devise a new digital method for the interpretation of digital images and the presentation of cultural critique. The research will also yield a live performance that Maher will develop in Stockholm, where Iaspis – the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Program for practitioners in Visual and Applied Arts, Design and Architecture – has invited her for a residency.

Iamdazita

Louisa Zahareas, 2016

€24.245
Architect and designer Louisa Zahareas gained her Master in Social Design from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015. In her design practice she focuses on speculative scenarios in which human consciousness is contrasted with that of the machine. Together with the University of Arizona, Zahareas has devised an algorithmic system to produce anamorphic 3D objects. These objects represent the machine’s perspective on physical reality. With the grant she is planning to develop this technology further, so that it can also be used by designers, architects and artists with little knowledge of coding. Zahareas also intends to establish a collaboration with the Evolving Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at the University of Wyoming, with which she wants to develop a design method that makes it possible to produce objects and interiors that are not recognized as such by AI. The results of the research and the anamorphic objects will be presented at Design Miami 2016’s Curio platform and Dutch Design Week 2017.

Thomas Ankersmit - CTM/Berghain

Thomas Ankersmit, 2016

€25.000
Thomas Ankersmit (b. Leiden, 1979) has been invited to develop a new electronic sound performance for the 18th edition of the CTM Festival in Berlin. The piece will be premiered at the Berghain club in early February, and will subsequently be presented on various platforms and at festivals in Europe. This audio work is an investigation into the potential and perception of infrasound – the sounds in the lowest bass register, on the boundary between what can still be heard and physical vibration. The 30-minute piece is characterized by quadraphonic sound and combines sounds produced in the studio with life performance on the modular synthesizer and computer. Ankersmit will be staying in Berlin from October 2016 to January 2017, where he will be carrying out on-site research in Berghain, focusing on the possibilities with the available sound systems, the acoustics of the space, and the handling of infrasounds.
