Studio Drift Coded Nature Exhibit at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam
Dutch Studio Drift present their first solo exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum showcasing early and current works as well as never before seen installations.
Studio Drift, founded by Lonneke Gordjin and Ralph Nauta, is known for their explorations of the boundaries between technology and nature. Their work is focused on the changing relationships between man, nature and technology. In this exhibit, Coded Nature, the Dutch duo stretch the limits of technology in a series of installations including their famous dandelion light sculpture, Fragile Future Chandelier which illustrates two seemingly opposite worlds struggling to survive. Studio Drift explores sustainability in today’s environment with the use of augmented reality.
They present a vision of the future with a unique set of aesthetics: a mix of high-tech and poetic symbolism. Chairs from the Ghost Collection are also featured with their linear design and transparent silhouette that seem to reveal ghostlike figures inside. Flylight, another highlight from the exhibit, is a light installation made with glass and LED that interacts with visitors and imitates the flight behavior of a flock of birds depicting the struggle between the safety of the group and individual freedom. The exhibit is hosted in Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum until 26 August.
