Studio Drift: blending nature & technology

Studio Drift is an Amsterdam (NL) based studio manipulating light and movement to explore existing and new relationships between nature, technology and mankind. Studio Drift is founded in 2007 by Lonneke Gordijn (1980) and Ralph Nauta (1978). Their focus is creating multi-disciplinary site-specific interactive installations, sculptures, objects and films, which propose a distinct mix between the latest science fiction inspired hi-tech developments and their poetic imagery.

At first glance, their work seems to refer to familiar situations but on further investigation these references are brought into question. The viewer is manipulated into reshaping their relationship towards their environment and personal connections, stimulating open-minded futuristic prospects where contradictions merge. A perfect example is the constant dialogue between the artists Lonneke and Ralph themselves. This dialogue is ever ongoing and even embedded in their name.
