Studio Drift’s The Coded Nature exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum is an absolute crowd pleaser for art in the age of instagram.
Studio Drift (Dutch duo Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta) occupies a unique place at the interface between tech art, performance, and biodesign.
With Fragile Future, Studio Drift fuses nature and technology into a multidisciplinary light sculpture. The project can be seen as a critical yet utopian vision on the future of our planet, where two seemingly opposite evolutions have made a pact to survive.
The sculpture consists of three-dimensional bronze electrical circuits connected to light emitting dandelions. It contains real dandelion seeds, that were picked by hand, and glued seed by seed to LED lights. This labour-intensive process is a clear statement against mass production and throwaway culture. Are the rapid technological developments of our age really more advanced than the evolution of nature, of which the dandelion is such a transient and symbolic example? And how could those two evolve together?
