Daan Roosegaarde is a young artist working in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts AKI in Enschede and received a Master at the Berlage Institute, a Postgraduate Laboratory of Architecture in Rotterdam.
Roosegaarde's work explores the dynamic relation between architecture, people and e-culture. In this interaction his sculptures create a situation of 'tactile high-tec' where visitor and (public) space become one.
Roosegaarde's interactive projects have been shown at international exhibitions at V2_, Netherlands Media Art Institute Montevideo, Tate Modern London, 'Microwave' Hong Kong, YCAM Japan and National Art Center Tokyo.
Currently Daan is the creative director of Studio Roosegaarde, an independent artistic laboratory in which interactive artworks are created.
