Jolan van der Wiel
Jolan uses the natural phenomenon of gravity and magnetism for his designs. After making a series of stools he started collaborating with Iris van Herpen for the Magnetic Moon Dresses: "dresses whose very forms are generated by the phenomenon of attraction and repulsion." His latest project Dragonstone concerns architecture and clay. At Ignite he will explain and show his fascinating design process.

A Sausage experiment with Brandt&Levie
Did you know that the taste of a sausage is determined by its surroundings? Together with Brandt&Levie we have started a new, four-week-long experiment of sausage fermentation. 7 Organizations are competing to become the best tasting place of Amsterdam. Who will win this fungal challenge? Waag Society, Vice, Vuurtoren Eiland, Mediamatic, KesselsKramer, Brandt&Levie or Keuringsdienst van Waarde? Find out during Bio-me and join the unofficial comparative tasting at the opening of Kunstformen Der Natur on September 18th, 20:30.
7 Different cultural locations in Amsterdam are competing in a fermentation competition with sausages from Brandt & Levie. You might not know it, but a sausage develops it's flavors because of fermentation: its interaction with local natural flora of micro-organisms on the spot. Every location received a package of sausages to be hung in their location. After a period of four weeks we will remove them and see what the difference is in taste, colour and consistency. The participating locations are: Brandt & Levie, Vice Magazine, Waag Society, KesselsKramer, Vuurtoreneiland, Keuringsdienst van Waarde and Mediamatic....
