Submarine Channel

He wants to update the world. And he has the skills to do it, big time.

In the series Dutch Profiles, that Submarine produces for DutchDFA, we present Daan Roosegaarde.

In a world shifting between the analog and the digital, Daan creates interactive designs that explore the dynamic relation between space, people and technology. Winner of numerous awards, Roosegaarde has been the focus of exhibitions from the Tate Modern to the National Museum in Tokyo and has a strong experience with public space commissions.

In 2011 he launched a second studio in Shanghai.  Daan’ studio develops its own technology and is internationally known for interactive projects such as Dune, Liquid Space and Smart Highway.

Watch this Profile and be amazed by Daan’s energy. New energy!
