Alissa + Nienke

Alissa + Nienke, 2016

€25.000
From their shared fascination with the interaction between man and space, designers Alissa van Asseldonk and Nienke Bongers jointly established a design studio. They both gained their degrees from the Department of Man & Well-Being at Design Academy Eindhoven. Together they envisage sparking curiosity and facilitating spontaneous discovery in daily life through their work. They actualize this by developing tactile, interactive materials and surfaces in which sensory experience is key. For the coming year the designers have set themselves the goal of developing their studio further, in terms of content – artistic and technical – so that their designs can actually be implemented in daily life and thus contribute to human well-being. They will be therefore be enriching their knowledge by following courses in philosophy and psychology, as well as in programs such as SketchUp or Solidworks and Arduino. Furthermore, they will be developing three projects: ‘BioMirror’, ‘Mirabilia’ and ‘Dangling Grid’. In addition they will develop a materials library and explore the use of stop-motion video. In order to make the work truly useful in everyday life, they are organizing public test moments and they will be collaborating with manufacturers and scientists. The designers regard these various pathways as different steps within a large-scale study that focuses on ‘experience-changing surfaces’

Chen Jhen

Chen Jhen, 2017

€25.000
Chen Jhen obtained his Master’s degree in Information Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016. In the next year, he intends to focus on researching identity and how this is dependent on and manifests itself in different perspectives and contexts. His starting point will be the historic bonds between Taiwan (Formosa) and the Netherlands, formed by two historical documents from the 17th century: one a collection of reports and diaries from the colony’s former Dutch Governor-General and the other a fictional history book by a Frenchman who claimed to have been born in Taiwan but had never been there. To help shape his research, Jhen plans to collaborate with the artist Chan Chiao Chun. One of them will conduct anthropological research on location in Taiwan and Indonesia. The other will remotely construct an identity based on information from the internet, news and historical documents. Both will focus on the same elements – geography (map), census (portrait) and ethos (diary). The research will take shape in various ways: an installation, video and a book.

Márk Redele

Márk Redele, 2017

€25.000
Márk Redele graduated in 2016 on the Interior Architecture Master’s programme Studio for Immediate Spaces at Amsterdam’s Sandberg Institute. The central theme of Redele’s work is ‘exchange’, with a particular focus on its performative characteristics. In his development plan, Redele describes his ambition to conduct material research, in which he aims to apply his work spatially in three different places. Redele is collaborating on the material research with an Italian plastics manufacturer. After a nine-month period, the results of the research will form the basis for a temporary retail store environment that will be organized and fitted out by Redele himself.

Anne Geenen

Anne Geenen, 2017

€25.000
Anne Geenen graduated in 2013 on the Master’s programme in Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences at Delft University of Technology. Geenen’s work focuses on the quest for ingenious ways of building, by engaging in exchanges with people practising traditional crafts and alternative creative methods. In the next year, she will be applying the experience in construction she acquired in India to a workshop in the Netherlands entitled ‘Werkplaats Rotterdam’ (Rotterdam Workshop). In this workshop, she will be able to develop both artistically and professionally. Various different partners will be involved in the workshop.

Carlijn Kingma

Carlijn Kingma, 2017

€25.000
Carlijn Kingma graduated in 2016 on the Master’s programme in Architecture at Delft University of Technology. Her work focuses on the depiction of physical space on maps, supplementing the physical experience and the language that can describe it. In her development plan, she covers four research themes that serve as inspiration for new works. These are religion, capitalism, the banking system and utopias. In developing new work, Kingma is involving Joep van Lieshout, Martijn van der Linden and others. In a residency, Kingma will also attempt to gain a deeper understanding of her use of language. Finally, the development plan also involves exploring new working techniques, including etching.

Jonathan Reus

Studio Reus, 2017

€25.000
Jonathan Reus graduated in 2014 on the Master’s programme in ArtScience at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK). His work combines traditional folk and other musical instruments with new technology. Reus translates scientific research or scientific phenomena into sound or instruments. Through research, debate, residencies and presentations, Reus aims to further develop his skills and raise his profile. He intends to create spatial work that visualizes the theoretical approach to sound. In his development, Reus is being coached by experts from the worlds of music, digital culture and science.
