New Mastermind: Daan Roosegaarde, creative director Studio Roosegaarde

Daan Roosegaarde is a young artist working in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts AKI in Enschede and the Berlage Institute, a Postgraduate Laboratory of Architecture in Rotterdam.

Roosegaarde’s work explores the dynamic relation between architecture, people and new media. His sculptures are a collision of technology and the human body. In this interaction the sculptures create a situation where visitor and (public) space become one.
Roosegaarde’s projects have been shown at international exhibitions at V2, Netherlands Media Art Institute & ‘Microwave’ in Hong Kong and presented in Dazed & Confused, Tate Modern London and NRC Handelsblad. Currently Daan is the creative director of Studio Roosegaarde, an artistic laboratory in which interactive artworks
are created.
