In “Is it alive?” it all comes together: innovation, textiles, technology and art inspired by life itself. The centrepiece is I am Storm by artist duo DRIFT (Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta). The new and never-before-shown installation consists of some 20 larger-than-life-size blades of grass that wave on an imaginary breeze. Other exhibits include the unique ‘living architecture’ by artist and architect Philip Beesley/Living Architecture Systems Group (LASG), an activated look by fashion designer Iris van Herpen, two interactive works by Bart Hess and extended work by Tanja Smeets. In the exhibition, we also take you through the making process, revealing that artists are sometimes inventors and can drive innovation.
