Here is a little film by two students from Holland about Life-boats! You can find it below this introduction. Enjoy!
Two students from Holland got in touch with me a few weeks ago; Anna Klapwijk (www.annaklapwijk.com) and Koen Droste, a maritime engineering student. They told me that they were working on a product-system-service around the Life-boats project, under supervision of Han Brezet, Professor at Delft University of Technology, and Dep. of Design for Sustainability. Han Brezet is also a guest Professor at Aalborg University and he has been visiting my studio twice in the process of building the Life-boats. He has engaged these students in a project on “how to make a sustainable cultural event around Life-boats – connection DK and NL”
Anna and I had a skype call, and afterwards she sent me this little film, where she did a collage of film footage and photos from the Life-boats web-site (mainly by Lars Hegndal), together with her and Koen’s related thoughts and interviews with Dutch people. Anna wrote to me that:
“The end part talks about the different projects we have come up with, that could potentially be done in the different cities that are passed on the way. By the end of the month, there will be a report that elaborates on that. Also, the app at the end exists, but it is a very limited example. We thought it would be good to develop one though, so people can connect through it and share their experience, and the boats can actually be followed.”
