From 22 to 30 October 2022, STRP is present at Dutch Design Week (DDW) with several activities. The film 'Choreographic Camouflage' by speculative architect and director Liam Young explores the ways in which technology can hack surveillance and tracking systems that monitor our daily lives. The first weekend of DDW, Liam Young will be in Eindhoven for an artist talk. And STRP is partner of DDW Talks: Interactive Experiences, where amongst others artist duo Cream on Chrome will talk about the design of experiential artworks.
In Choreographic Camouflage, Young teams up with choreographer Jacob Jonas for a dance performance and film that presents a new vocabulary of movement that has been designed to disguise the proportions of their body from the skeleton detection algorithms used by modern city’s surveillance networks to track and identify individuals. The film will be shown in continuous time slots during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, from 11 am to 6 pm. You will find Choreographic Camouflage at the Dance Studio in Area51, Strijp-S. Entrance is free of charge.
As digital technologies advance, design experimentation in the arts advances on a big scale. In DDW Talks: Interactive Experiences, STRP, Disegno and Dutch Design Week (DDW) investigate how innovative new design and manufacturing techniques are driving trends for experience-based artworks. Amongst others, artist duo Cream on Chrome will be sharing their experiences with designing their installation Environmentalist Stock Exchange - seen at STRP Festival 2023.
