Weird Science with Tim Taminiau
If you could teleport today, where would you go?
It might seem far fetched, but in this day and age teleportation is a serious topic of research instead of speculation. In fact, researchers at the Quantum Transport Team from the TU Delft successfully teleported quantum information across a 3 meter distance!
At Weird Science we will put things in perspective. By combining a Pop-Science lecture by scientist Tim Taminiau with the screening of the classic sci-fi movie The Fly (1958), we can envision the possibilities and pitfalls of teleportation. Food at 19:00 - talk and screening at 20:00.

As part of the "Quantum Transport Team" led by Ronald Hanson (TU Delft), Tim Taminiau investigates novel quantum mechanical phenomena in nanometer-scale structures. For those without a doctorate in physics, this is teleportation on the level of single atoms. They aim to find fundamental breakthroughs and its possible applications - for instance in quantum computing. For this evening, Tim will present an informal lecture on teleportation. With the assistance of a classic sci-fi movie, Tim will explore the exciting possibilities and common misconceptions surrounding his cutting-edge research . No prior knowledge needed! T...
Biotalk by Špela Petrič and Matthew Whiteside
How to visualize what is not visible for the human eye? And how to design for the non-human? For the monthly Biotalks we invite Bio-Artists and Scientists to clarify their research and practice. This time we dive into the dirty secrets and sexual behavior of plants above ground, and a fluorescent exchanging party below ground.
Food at 19.00, talks at 20.00
How to design for the non-human other? As part of The Sex Plant Consultancy dr. Špela Petrič helped design new reproductive methodologies for her vegetal clients addressing problems such as bee extinction, infertility and infection (STD). In her artistic practice Špela combines natural sciences, new media and performance. This also shows in her current project; the launch of Naval Gazing, a 7,5 km kinetic structure in the North Sea intended as non-human architecture to facilitate a micro-ecology.
To visualize nutrients in soil, bacteria, fungi and plants, researcher Matthew D. Whiteside uses highly fluorescent ...
Open Wednesday - Sunday
More than a century ago, biologist Ernst Haeckel scored a hit with his amazing illustrations of unseen organisms. We collected all 100 lithographs and blew them up to 5 times life size for our exhibition. Come see the originals next to their hallucinating blow-ups and the works of Dutch architect H.P. Berlage, design studio Bernotat &Co and graphic designers Rudy Guedj, Martin Huger, Olya Troitskaya and Sophie Rogg who got inspired by the secret beauty of nature. Plus the Liquid Gold installation by Sophia Twigt. Open Wed - Sun, 13:00 - 18:00.
Ever since the release of Kunstformen Der Natur, in the beginning of the 20th century, the beautiful illustrations by Ernst Haeckel have proven to be a continuous source of inspiration for designers, artists, architects, illustrators and biologists. What make these images so special that, to this day, they have stayed relevant and influential in both the artistic and scientific community?
With larger than life illustrations by Ernst Haeckel, watercolors from Dutch architect H.P.Berlage, Radiolara lighting from Bernotat&Co and light ob...
and 9 other ideas, obsessions and visions
We spent the summer to find the freshest ideas. The 12 speakers of September's Ignite will talk for 5 minutes each about living organisms, a new kind of food, being sexy, hiphop and art and more. Food at 19:00, the first speaker will kick-off at 20:30. Get your tickets online in advance to save a few euros.
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.
