Using the spectrum of light to visualize the information density of all the data the P.I.B. contains, the individual colors culminates in a gigantic white beam streaming towards space. The intangible narrative of the P.I.B. symbolized in the subtractive color process of light. Inside the gallery, a large printer endlessly documents these same narratives on a continuous roll of paper. The random colors of each letter of each personal narrative documented on this ‘scroll’ gradually mix to black when viewed from a distance. Through additive color process, the words ends up as a black news stream, a poetic juxtaposition to the white light of the building.

DataCloud, is a spatial visualization of the real-time database of the entire Boijmans collection (119,000 works of art). Each piece of art is represented by a point in a 3D space. All these points form a colorful universe, visually quantifying the extremely abstract term of '117,000 works of art' to the visitors of the museum. The space is defined by 3 axes: Date of Acquisition, Date of Manufacture and Format of Object. Through an intuitive interface the user can easily navigate through this 'universe' with a intuitive interface, he or she can specify the criteria by which the data is represented.

is a platform comprising of a personal robot and an intelligent navigation system that aims to bring an innovative driving experience. We envision a navigation system that mimics the friendly expertise of a driving companion who is familiar with both the driver and the city. Instead of focusing solely on determining routes to a specified waypoint, our system utilizes analysis of driver behavior in order to identify the set of goals the driver would like to achieve.
The Grote Markstraat —600 meters long— was transformed into a landingstrip, using 36x6 indivual controllable lights and 48 2000-Watt speakers, creating the experience of airplanes landing in the street. The landingstrip connected the two main areas of the festival, with a total of more than 25 stages throughout the city. The Volharding building functioned as an arrivals & departures sign, all tied together by audio-announcements of ‘incoming’ artists in eight different languages.
