The built environment is becoming increasingly controlled by technological intelligence, while we, paradoxically enough, are becoming ever more estranged from the whole point of computerization, which now prescribes our everyday reality. In an attempt to narrow this divide, Daan Roosegaarde’s remarkable works of art function as a documentation of the dynamic relations between architecture, people and e-culture. His sculptures embody an environment of ‘tactile high-tech’ in which the visitors andthe space become one. The connection that is established between design and content, between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls ‘techno-poetry’.This publication presents a complete overview of Roosegaarde’s work, which has been shown at the Tate Modern and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and at the National Museum in Tokyo, as well as in public spaces in The Hague and Rotterdam.
