‘LOTUS’ is a small kinetic object that reacts to movement through the use of a proximety sensor. The movement is caused by a single servo motor, which moves the Lotus’ arms up and down. This prototype is develop during my residence at the ThinkerMakerspace at CYENS in Nicosia, Cyprus.
During my residency at CYENS I found myself at the beaches surrounding Aya Napia where I found this crab leg and was once again impressed by the principles of movement.
During my residency at the Student Hotel, I experimented with glass gears. Deforming and pulling the gears out of proportion, and creating organic cylinder-shaped gears. These gears were showcased in a 24/7 window exhibit alongside my experiments with trapping and mixing different liquids and my blindly ambitious project to make a glass piston engine.

First contact – Jeanine Verloop (exchange residence between Hangar and V2_Lab)
A shiny, transparent exoskeleton waits quietly, resting on a table, perhaps a remote activation. Fragile fingers of quick touch remain immovable in a retracted and uncertain position. A voice resounds from an intercom loudspeaker:
– Imagine that you have never seen a human being before.
The alien perspective infiltrates among those present, gently laying on us its bluish prisms.
– Their devices look all the same. Shouldn’t there be more imagination surrounding them?
A laser cuts a writing device. Laser eyes outline grey hands that approach a body (of human appearance) and reconstruct it. Hands hesitating, trying to follow confusing designs: files decrypted by archaeologists of the future, collected on hard disks of transparent methacrylate.
