Max Dovey

Max Dovey, 2016

€25.000
Max Dovey gained his MA in Media Design & Communication from the Piet Zwart Institute in 2015. Dovey uses performances and installations to pose critical questions about the promises and dangers of big data, artificial intelligence and the use of computers. Over the coming year Dovey will be developing a scenario-driven live action game about blockchain technology. A blockchain is a distributed database that tracks a constantly growing list of data items that are protected from manipulation and falsification. A blockchain means it is unnecessary for a third party to safeguard the trustworthiness of a transaction. The game brings players in contact with the potential significance of blockchain technology for alternative forms of economic organization and new forms of social governance. The designer is working with Professor Chris Speed (Design Informatics, University of Edinburgh). In order to develop his qualities in the field of performance, Dovey is pursuing a residency with Blast Theory, an English theatre company. He is also cooperating with the Design my Privacy initiative as he works on several publications and events about the subject of digital privacy.

How to consume Romie 18

Studio Adela & Gennerper Hoeve, 2019

€25.000
Junyan Tan graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018, in the Food Non-Food Master programme. Her practice concentrates on translating our complex food system to the public at large. For this she uses an integral design strategy that not only takes account of the sensory qualities of food, but also the nutritional value, ecology and sustainability. For the project 'How to consume Romie 18', she is working with the biodynamic farm Gennerper Hoeve. Using the facilities and knowledge of Gennerper Hoeve, Tan will examine what happens when you take a specific cow out of the herd and the associated system. What does this mean for the meat? How does this influence the distribution system and sales? And what can it mean for our relationship to the animal? The goal is to arrive at a new system for milk production in the Netherlands. The research results will be presented in the form of two dinners and an exhibition.

Benny Nilsen & Spatial Media Laboratories – Expanded Field Recording

Benny Nilsen & Spatial Media Laboratories, 2019

€25.000
Sound artist Bennie Nilsen will work with Spatial Media Laboratories (SML) to investigate how he can expand his current practice of sound art and field recording into the visual domain. In his project 'Expanded Field Recording', Nilsen examines how the experience of landscape and time can be intensified and 'expanded' by working with VR and 3D technologies. The locations and landscapes that Nilsen focuses on are former industrial sites such as waste dumps and military terrains. These sites have often been repurposed, so that the site's history and the traces thereof are hard to see, or only indirectly. Through Expanded Field Recording, Nilsen wishes to make the complex histories of such locations tangible. SML is a new workplace in Rotterdam where makers can develop technological applications. SML shares its knowledge, materials and network. A theoretical-reflective layer will be added to the project in collaboration with SML. To this end, Nilsen intends to work with a scientific researcher in SML's network. The results will be presented at the end of 2019 during a public meetup in Worm.

Weaving of the Future

Alissa + Nienke & EE Exclusives, 2019

€25.000
Alissa + Nienke (Alissa van Asseldonk and Nienke Bongers) is a design studio based on the research of materials, with its own interpretation of surface design: tactile materials that stimulate or challenge us and that enhance our everyday environment. The designers usually start from an existing 'flat' material which they manipulate into a three-dimensional material with new properties and applications. Many of the installations that the studio has developed so far are closely related to textile. However, the designers have never actually worked or experimented with textile or textile techniques. For the project 'Weaving of the Future' they therefore wish to collaborate with the specialised textile industry. They have found a partner in EE Exclusives, which has been a specialist in label weaving since 1900, and is also capable technically of weaving in 3D. Together, they will investigate new weaving techniques and will experiment with the construction of materials. The ultimate goal is to create new (surface) materials that push the limits of the machines. The new materials will be added to Alissa + Nienke's Interactive Material Archive. The partnership intends to present the results at the Dutch Design Week 2019 and at DRIVE 2019, where research-through-design is presented.

Waterfront pavilion

NEXT Architects & ShapeService, 2019

€25.000
The Dutch goal to have a fully circular construction industry by 2050 is a huge challenge. Various parties are researching methods of construction that can be disassembled again. Some of the challenges are the limited availability of materials, storage times, certification and how to connect the various building parts. Despite widespread interest in the industry, there is not much practical experimentation. NEXT Architects is taking the construction of the Circular Pavilion in Amsterdam Noord as an opportunity to test various systems, forms and materials. The applicant is working on a method that dissects a building into layers that function independently of each other and that can be disassembled. To produce and connect the roof layer, the applicant is working with ShapeService, which is part of the Brabant company The Plastic Enterprise, on large-scale 3D-print technology that uses recycled plastic as raw material. The result is a 1:1 prototype of a 3D-printed roof element to be used for the pavilion. This publicly accessible pavilion will serve as a case study for the construction industry. The results will be shared through programmes by the BNA, and in other ways.

Recomposed Bamboo

Chris Kabel & Doornekamp/RHS, 2019

€25.000
At the invitation of the Craft Department of Shanghai University in 2016, designer Chris Kabel conducted a study into bamboo processing in Anji, China's bamboo capital. Focusing on the intrinsic material properties of bamboo stems and parts, Recomposed Bamboo proposes new processing techniques and applications. The goal of the project is to promote the use of bamboo – with its unique aesthetical and constructive qualities – as a sustainable alternative to using profiles and constructions made of steel, aluminium and hardwood. The research into the best construction and production of the profiles and a small series of test-case objects is conducted in collaboration with Doornekamp Woodspecials, a specialist in special wood constructions, which is offering the use of an extensive workplace and expert personnel. The results of the study will be shared and distributed through parties including Galerie Kreo (Paris) and industrial parties.
