How do I feel about controlling nature to create design? How does it compare to using it as a raw material?

Waterlight 

Studio Roosegaarde

It not only makes a statement, but is aesthetic and working towards (speculative) innovative thinking. 

Projects are sculptural and impressive in size in public space. It demands interaction with the viewer. 

It creates an ever changing virtual flood, influenced by wind and rain at a great location. 

“Waterlicht is an activator to create a better future. Experience the vulnerability and the power of living with water.” – Daan Roosegaarde, artist

Meadows 

Studio Drift

The aesthetics are pretty, but I miss a good storyline. The storylines feel “made up afterwards” and far fetched.

Studio Drift states to explore the relationship between man, nature and technology but to me it seems a commercialized copy of a natural phneomena.

Fragile Futures 

Studio Drift

Pretty aesthetics, storytelling more interesting as utopian future of our planet wherein the nature and technology work together.

Tree of Tenere

Studio Drift

Represents the strongest symbol of life flourishing in the most difficult circumstances. Shaped with the growth of the tree in its surroundings.

Tree Trunk Chair

Maarten Baas manipulates the raw material, nature to grow a chair, rather than cutting material and use that to create. 

A mould will force the tree into shape. How different from Japan where they build a house around a tree.

New Forest

Maarten BAas

The change in behaviour and technology, like Google Earth are used to see the planet as a canvas, creating logos in forests through leave colors. Natures preference for surroundings is manipulated.

“Oxman is rethinking design to empower a future of complete synergy between Nature and humanity.”

Humanity in relation to nature and how our drive for technological advancement is threathening viailbility of life on earth. 

Mission is to create design solutions with nature while advancing humanity. Healing rift between nature and humanity.

I like that they acknowledge that the need for technological advancement cannot be stopped but can be changed. From human-centric to nature-centric design. Human-made and nature-grown indistinguishable.

Like the art, meets science vibe of the designs. Appreciate the radical ways of thinking and making.
