@ LP2, Wilhelminakade 326, Rotterdam (NL)

The Patching Zone has been working with students from Zadkine College to explore the history and the context of the Wilhelminapier to design and create installations for the public space.  Together they have collectively designed a series of prototypes and developed projects to engage visitors with the story of the Wilhelminapier.  All the prototypes reflect an ongoing enquiry into designing for public space using digital or interactive technology.

POINTS OF DEPARTURE is an event that showcases the result of this enquiry. The prototypes connect archive material, present-day audio and images of horizons with the sensory element of wind, that is so prominent on the Wilhelminapier. A wind sensor is installed to broadcast collected experiences of travel and migration. The installations explore what migration and travelling feels like in contemporary society. How are people travelling in today’s global context and what are they leaving behind in order to do so?

These works are the results of an assignment given by the Cultural Cooperation on the Wilhelminapier and are a work in progress: they should be seen as proposals for future installations on the pier.
