Join guide Esmée Dros for the Thursday Night Detour on 14 April at 7pm when she shares her perspective on The Future Through Artificial Eyes exhibition.
Graphic designer Esmée Dros focuses on telling stories (that need to be told) in her work. She researches how to create connections between imagery and meaning. She works in various forms, from designing figures in different colours for publications, to designing forms of conversation. Esmée is curious by nature. She loves the sun, going to the market and working with people from different disciplines.
“As a detour guide, I would like to use my design practice in order to create something small, together with visitors, so that they always go home with a self-made visual memory.”
The Future Through Artificial Eyes
In the installation The Future Through Artificial Eyes by researcher and designer Richard Vijgen, visitors can explore future visions from the past 20 years with the help of artificial intelligence. By playing with the 'eyes' with which the computer views the archive of the future-themed Dutch TV programme VPRO Tegenlicht, visitors experience how it processes information. What patterns does it 'see' in 555 VPRO Tegenlicht broadcasts?
Thursday Night Detour
Every Thursday night a detour guide takes you on a free detour through one of the exhibitions on display at Het Nieuwe Instituut. Discover design, digital culture and architecture from the perspective, expertise and knowledge of the detour guide. Each detour is different. A detour might end up in a joint choreography or in a design of a space for insects.
