Studio DRIFT founded by Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn explore nature and technology, ideology and reality.
"In this time of information overload and exaggerated senses, we hope that our work emphasises the metaphysical quality of human sensations, that it establishes a point of balance in the midst of the contradictions of daily life, and that it stresses immaterial - spiritual and emotional - values."
In Fragile Future III they created a captivating light sculpture. On closer look you realise each light is the centre of a real dandelion. It combines nature and technology in a beautiful dream-like way. As how can something so delicate be preserved and why do the tiny parachutes not blow away?
Dandelight is a simplified version of Fragile Future III, a little luminous dandelion powered by a simple battery.
