In "Is it alive?" it all comes together: innovation, textiles, technology and art inspired by life itself. At the center is I am Storm by artist duo DRIFT (Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta). The new and never-before-shown installation consists of twenty life-size sprites waving on an imaginary wind. You will also experience, among other things, 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 extensive 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.
