Daan Roosegaarde creates interactive projects which blurs the line between art, technology and sense. His team of designers and engineers develop their own bespoke technology and his works encourages users and viewers to interact with the pieces. This interactivity is as much part of the works as is the visual aesthetic and the potential of commercialization is never too far from his intent. His studio resembles a science lab where his team experiment, observe and investigate and is where “the studio creates interactive designs that explore the dynamic relation between people, technology and space.” Retrieved from http://www.studioroosegaarde.net/info/profile/.
