WalkWithMe is a media and signage installation designed to inform and inspire visitors of the newly opened Forum Groningen. Numerous (interactive) displays show programming, news and information. The organic form of the steel construction is inspired by trees and gives life to the quirky object, bringing up a dialogue with the visitor. A series of light boxes make up the heart of the installation. Internal light changes continuously and interacts with the presence of the visitor. The dichroic box surfaces make the visitors perspective determine a mirroring, luminous or transparent impression

Bio
I work as an independent multidisciplinary designer and teacher in Groningen, The Netherlands. In recent years the emphasis in my spatial work has shifted from the theatre stage to public spaces. My work includes media installations, light art and free installations. In my designs I combine monumentality with attention to detail. Tactility, the influence of light, and the viewer's perspective are important themes in my work.
