Studio Roosegaarde - Profile
Artist and architect Daan Roosegaarde (1979) creates interactive landscapes that instinctively respond to sound and movement. Roosegaarde's remarkable works of art function as a documentation of the dynamic relation between architecture, people, and technology. This connection, established between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls "techno-poetry". His Studio Roosegaarde develops its own technology and designs and is internationally known for interactive artworks such as Dune and Sustainable Dance Floor. Recently Studio Roosegaarde launched its second studio in Shanghai, CN. In 2009, Roosegaarde won the Dutch Design Award. He has been the focus of exhibitions at the Tate Modern, the National Museum in Tokyo, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and various public spaces in Rotterdam and Hong Kong.

Dune, 2007
Dune is a responsive piece that reacts as you walk through the work. The reeds, lit with LED lights, respond to motion and touch, creating an ever-changing, immersive environment.

Stroke the reeds to interact with Dune.
