‘Dune’ by Daan Roosegaard

Artist and designer Daan Roosegaarde’s remarkable works of art function as a documentation of the dynamic relationship between architecture, people, and technology. His designs, such as ‘Dune’ and ‘intimacy,’ are tactile high-tech environments in which viewer and space become one. This connection, established between ideology and technology, results in what roosegaarde calls techno-poetry. 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’ is a public interactive landscape that interacts with human behavior. This hybrid of nature and technology is composed of large amounts of fibers that brighten according to the sounds and motion of passing visitors. Its most recent version is filled with hundreds of interactive lights and sounds. ‘Dune’ investigates nature in a futuristic relation with urban space through sight, movement and
interaction.
