Daan Roosegaarde is a young artist working in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts AKI in Enschede, and at the Berlage Institute, a postgraduate laboratory of architecture in Rotterdam. Roosegaarde's work explores the dynamic relation between architecture, humans, and new media. His sculptures reflect collisions of technology with the human body. In this interactive relationship, the sculptures create situations where visitors and (public) spaces become one. His interactive projects are internationally exhibited at V2_, Netherlands Media Art Institute Montevideo, Tate Modern London, YCAM Japan, National Art Center Tokyo and Venice Biennale 2009. Currently Daan is the creative director of Studio Roosegaarde, an independent artistic laboratory.
