Meet Daan Roosegaarde Youre always a voluntary prisoner of your own imagination

first_imgIs it possible for humanity to live sustainably with nature and technology?Daan Roosegaarde, a young artist, innovator and architect from the Netherlands, and with his group of designers and engineers, are on a quest to answer that question – and to create what they call the Landscapes of the Future. His projects include the Smog Free Project, Van Gogh Path, Waterlicht and Windlicht, which address issues such as water and air pollution, and producing clean energy.Roosegaarde, 37, studied art at the Institute for the Arts in Arnhem and the Academy of Fine Arts in Enschede. He then obtained a master’s degree in architecture at the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam. In 2007 he founded Studio Roosegaarde in the Netherlands and later opened offices in Shanghai, China. In 2016 he was named one of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders; and Artist of the Year in the Netherlands; and a Creative Changemaker by Forbes and Good 100. In addition to multiple design awards, he has given lectures at TED and international mass media such as The New York Times, CNN, Bloomberg, Wired, Artsy, China Daily, Impactmania and Dezeen have written about his marvelous work creating a better world for the future.During the seventh International Design Festival’s (FID) at the Antigua Aduana in San José, Roosegaarde spoke about how humanity must cope with these new challenges we’re facing in order to create a sustainable world.Roosegaarde granted The Tico Times a special interview during his visit. As we strolled through the Antigua Aduana’s plaza, Roosegaarde spoke with us about his life and work. Excerpts follow.Why did you choose to become an artist and an innovator?You don’t choose to be an artist. It just sort of happens. I think it was always this desire to make myself more connected to the world that was around me. I grew up in these hard concrete houses, and it always felt so sterile and static. I always wanted to make it more interactive, more personal and more open. That’s when I started to use technology in order to make it happen.How did you discover that you were interested in the relationship between nature, technology and humanity?I live in the Netherlands, below sea level, so everything that you see is planted. The whole country already has this relationship between nature and technology: without it, we wouldn’t survive and exist. For me, [nature and technology] have a lot of similarities, the growth, the evolution, the trial and error, but somehow, we don’t see it like that. Technology is functional and nature is something you go on a Sunday to look at: you go to the forest. I wanted to create a more natural experience. (Courtesy of Francisco Cubillo)When you decided to become an architect, what type of buildings did you want to design?I just started to look a lot at architecture. I took the train and went to all the beautiful old-school buildings, from Ponte Old in Rome to more modern architecture to the Japanese architects in Tokyo, and that helped me a lot to think. Then I started to make this more interactive art and architecture and we started to connect it with more social topics like clean air, clean water, and clean energy.Afterwards, the scale became much bigger. That’s where we are right now. In a way I’m coming back to architecture, and that’s really good.How do you create a concept that balances art, technology and humanity?I don’t think of these kinds of divisions. You try to make proposals for the future, what you want the future to look like. You don’t want to think in terms of opinions; you want to work on proposals. Some projects are a bit more practical, like Smog Free, and some are more poetic, like the Waterlicht with the blue light. It depends on the context or my personal obsession. It depends on what I think is really important at that moment. During Roosegarde’s visit to Costa Rica as speaker for the FID, the artist, architect and innovator discussed how we can overcome our fear of technology. (Courtesy of FID, via is your research process?If you make something, it’s like a taste in your mouth [makes gesture of touching his tongue with one of his hands]. You don’t know the ingredients. You start to read, to write, to travel, to experiment, and it’s the same way when you make a pancake. The first pancake always fails. You make mistakes, and in the end you have your top chef cook a star dessert that you can share. It’s a lot of trying and shooting and experimenting.Sometimes people ask us a question, like a mayor from a city, a government, a private collector or an airport, but sometimes we commission ourselves. For example, for the Smog Free Project, there was no request. We spent our own time imagining it, and now everybody wants it. At the beginning no one wanted it.Which has been the response of politicians and governments to the Smog Free Project?In the beginning they were very risk-averse, so they had a lot of questions because it was something new. Since the successful launch in Beijing, we’ve had serious talks with India, Kazakhstan, Paris, and London. At the beginning it was not the case.What plans have you made with all these countries and cities you mentioned?It’s going to be a Smog Free campaign. It’s not just a tower, but also Smog Free bicycles, a Smog Free symposium and a workshop with students, so it will be a series of events for the upcoming three to five years. What’s the most complex project that you’ve done?I think the Windlicht was very difficult to do. Although it looked really simple, it was really complex, and the Smog Free as well. The Waterlicht was actually quite easy because you don’t need that much material and nature does most of it. The wind and the humidity bring it to life because the wind always changes, even in the same evening. It keeps changing because nature changes. We got a lot of gifts from nature there.In the end, it doesn’t matter because it’s about the interaction you have with the audience. They don’t care if it was difficult or easy [to make].Regarding nature, how do you make sure that everything goes well when projecting your work?You do a lot of tests and prototypes, indoors and outdoors, as well as simulations in the computer. You know that when you start with an idea it can completely change. It grows. Every project fails somewhere, but in the end we always manage. That’s part of the project.Since the Windlicht was the most difficult one, how did you manage to do the rays of light?You had to match the two floating points. The windmill was moving and the blades were moving, so you have to sort of create a stable connection and it was quite difficult.How do you measure the exact points were everything meets?You have a series of sensors, tracking software and cameras, and they feed the software. The software calibrates how they send the lights, but it has to be very precise because if you miss a blade, the line just keeps on going. You first send a test signal with lights, the light reflects and it’s all in a millisecond. Once you received that signal, then you send the visual light. What was the process to create the Waterlicht and the Van Gogh Path?It was actually a request from the Dutch Water Board. We were playing with several ideas to create water. In [mid] process we had to [come up with an idea] to visualize it and we did some tests and it really worked. While we were testing, people were walking by and they were like: “Holy shit, the dike is breaking. We’re being flooded.” We never imagined that it would become so popular in that way. It became a really mesmerizing experience for many, and a beautiful scene. The government was really happy because finally people were starting to realize the work they were doing. Before, everyone took it for granted.The Van Gogh Foundation came to us to celebrate Van Gogh’s 125th [birthday] and it was specific for the spot where he lived and worked from 1883 to 1885. They came to me and said: “Can you make something to make the area more alive?” We got to work and I wanted to do something practical, poetic, with lights. We did that quite fast. I think we did it in ten months. How does your work combine math, nature, science, and art?I think the world is about making new connections, so you can never solve a problem if you only look at it one way. I always need to make things that trigger diversity.[Through culture and art] is the only way [to improve the world] because it’s not working the way that it is right now. We should come up with new proposals and that’s a design challenge. You can show how it can be done differently and you show the beauty of it in the hope that people accept it fast, so you can progress.In your lecture here you mentioned the fear that we as humans have of technology. How can we overcome it or create a balance with it?I think technology is a great tool. Right now we’re sitting in front of a computer screen feeding our hopes, dreams, and fears to Facebook and Twitter, and that’s sort of weird. The machines should help us, and the machines that we have are killing us, like the cities and the cars. How can we learn to use it to our own advantage?You have to learn to approach it differently. For example, it can be used to make cities clean again, promote cycling and all of these kinds of things. I like to use it this way.Regarding these new technologies and topics, how do you think Costa Rica is doing?I think it’s weird when you look at the city we’re in right now. There’s a real separation between city and nature, so we don’t learn from nature in that way, to make our city more energy friendly or more human. There’s no real connection, in a way. I think that a good city would try to integrate them much more… and clean water, clean energy, clean air. (Courtesy of Francisco Cubillo)How can we start to implement these new technologies in Costa Rica?It starts with something very simple. Start putting the layers of solar panels anywhere you can find. That’s a low-hanging fruit. It’s a simple step. You need to be ambitious. You have the [2021] carbon neutral target, which you’re not going to make, but it’s good to have this sort of great ambitions and at the same time trigger the minds of the young people here so that they also begin to think in the new ideas for proposals.Since we’re not going to make the carbon-neutral goal, how can we reorganize?I don’t know. Maybe it’s something we decide in a conference like this together. What we want, what we think is feasible. Don’t wait for the government to make the decision. It’s up to you.Finally, what inspires and motivates you to continue working with these innovative ideas for the improvement of the world?I think you’re always a voluntary prisoner of your own imagination. You look around and wonder, why are we always doing it like this? Why can’t we do it like that? So it sort of starts out of this irritation or wonder. Then you start to create.If it goes right, sometimes you need to learn and start over again, but it’s fascinating to take hold of the world around you and see what happens. To see what works and what doesn’t work. What technologies have you developed through these projects?I think with every project we develop new technology. Sometimes it was an optimization that was already there. Sometimes it was something completely, new and you always work with a team of designers and external experts to make it happen and make sure that it works and remains working. That’s also very important.

Updated: January 3 2017 12:09 pm Interestingly all four films belong to different genres and that will give Akshay Kumar a chance to prove his versatility Top News Trust Akshay Kumar to do no less than four movies every calendar year and he has made his intentions pretty clear right at the very start of 2017 by announcing a slew of four films Interestingly all four films belong to different genres and will give a chance to Akshay to prove his versatility Let’s take a look at the list and how he usually plans his shoots to complete and release four films every year Jolly LLB 2 (10 February) Akshay Kumar has donned many avatars but never before a lawyer’s gown until Jolly LLB 2 happened The makers of the sequel wanted a bigger star onboard and in came Akshay in place of Arshad Warsi who helmed part one The trailer has created good buzz and the first look indicates the sequel will be a more commercial affair than the first one Will Akshay be able to pull off the new role with panache is something that remains to be seen While Saurabh Shukla reprises his role Annu Kapoor is the new addition as the devil’s advocate Toilet- Ek Prem Katha (June 2) The title may seem a bit quirky but the message delivered will be an important one about PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Swacha Bharat Abhiyan’ The movie is being slotted in the comedy genre film and will be about the unhygienic sanitation prevalent in rural areas of India Akshay pairs up with the one-film old Bhumi Pednekar and the new pairing will be an interesting one to watch out for Knowing Akshay’s hold at comedy it would exciting to see if the actor can combine and package satire and social message like Raju Hirani does in his movies 20 (October 19) Akshay has taken a path less trodden here No male Bollywood superstar has ever appeared in big films down south Akshay has accepted the challenge and he appears as a villain opposite the God of Indian cinema – Rajinikanth Akshay sports a different ‘crow’ type look for the film and aficionados can expect to see some high octane VFX laced action including the face-off between Rajinikanth and Akshay The latter marks his return to villainy after long and it would be interesting to see how this one pans out Padman #PadMan #2017 pictwittercom/XUOEcMKVGI — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) January 1 2017 This one has just been announced although the release date has not yet been declared It’s a true story reportedly based on the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine Arunachalam is credited for having innovated grass-root mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India Akshay’s inclination towards real life stories has led him to the discovery of yet another interesting one that looks to have the ingredients of making an exciting celluloid drama The film will be produced by Twinkle Khanna It’s rather interesting to see how Akshay manages to do what no other superstar does in B-town While stars like SRK and Salman prefer to work in an average of two films per year and make it to the 100 or 200 crore club Akshay manages to do that with ease by delivering three to four blockbuster movies the cumulative accumulation of which makes him a permanent member of the elite club every year More from the world of Entertainment: For those wondering how Akshay manages to finish four films in 365 days the star himself had explained the maths behind it in an interview with a leading daily a couple of years back The breakdown looks like this: Total number of Akshay Kumar’s film per year – 4 Number of days given to each film – 60 Total number of days needed for four films – 240 This leaves Akshay with a total of 125 free days per year The actor takes Sundays off which makes it 52 Sundays in all He takes one week off after finishing every film which makes it a total of 21 days for three films He takes an annual holiday consisting 45 days That makes it a total of 118 days when he is not working Add 240 to 118 and you get 358 The remaining seven days is what he uses to shoot brand endorsements To be successful in following this schedule Akshay operates every day with clockwork precision The actor wakes up at 4 am and by 10 am he is done with half his day’s work The actor sleeps early and doesn’t believe in late-night parties Now that’s what we call meticulous planning For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Praveen Swami | Published: February 25 2016 12:10 am Illustration by C R Sasikumar Top News Late one night in 2008 a warning message flashed on a computer screen at the Intelligence Bureau’s (IB’s) counter-terrorism unit’s Delhi office: One of hundreds of cellphone numbers on a counter-terrorism watchlist had just come alive There was just one single officer on duty charged with scanning through dozens of simultaneous calls in the hope of catching a useful conversation Idly he switched to the new call — and began listening in to the first minutes of the tragedy we now call 26/11 It was pure blind luck: The SIM cards used by the Lashkar-e-Taiba had been planted on the group by a Jammu and Kashmir Police intelligence asset Had the 26/11 attackers been given different SIM cards the conversations that saved dozens of lives and exposed the perpetrators may never have been detected Thousands of kilometres away in Cheltenham the United Kingdom’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) had enjoyed a ringside view of the plot for months — culled directly from the Lashkar’s own computers Though they warned India of imminent attack the GCHQ provided few details fearful of embarrassing their ally Pakistan India found out the truth only because the dice rolled its way In 2009 then Home Minister P Chidambaram promised an appalled nation he would make sure Indian security no longer hinged on chance: “We can no longer afford business as usual” he said We evidently can because we still are — instead of building modern counter-terrorism institutions India has a martyrdom-manufacturing machine For the past several months Indians have been outraging about lives claimed by Pakistani jihadist groups — the deaths of three young soldiers in Pampore; the killing of National Security Guard (NSG) personnel in Pathankot; the shooting down of police officers in Gurdaspur Even as India has been mourning these martyrs it hasn’t called those responsible to account: A political leadership charged with building counter-terrorism capacity In Pampore military personnel were called on to carry out a room-intervention operation in a building housing civilians — a task for which they are neither intensively trained nor equipped The NSG which is was put in charge at Pathankot — a very different kind of operation involving cordoning large areas Gurdaspur demonstrated to all willing to see exactly what happens when a police force which can’t even meet its fuel bills let alone train at a firing range meets well-resourced enemies Little has changed in the years after 26/11 well-orchestrated media hype notwithstanding The deficits are most glaring in the case of state police forces — the women and men who in most cases respond first to violence The case of Mumbai is illustrative Last year just 11000 of the city’s 42000-strong force received any firearms training — even though the rules only call on them to fire 60 practice rounds a year The reason is simple — the state says it just doesn’t have the money The problem is accentuated by the fact that assault weapons can’t be fired at Mumbai’s only police firing range after local residents complained of rounds deflecting into their homes That means crack units set up after 26/11 like Force 1 can’t train on their M4 Colt 556 carbine and M107 Special Application Rifle — nor the regular police’s counter-terrorism units on their Kalashnikovs Even élite forces like the NSG suffer from chronic problems of acquisition and training The chaotic siege at Pathankot where the NSG took over 48 hours to clear a building where just two terrorists were holed out stands in stark contrast to Paris where the fighting was ended in hours — in some cases minutes Few police forces and élite units moreover have tools their counterparts elsewhere take for granted — the NSG’s efforts to buy ballistic shields for example have bogged down in red-tape Delhi Police for its part has neither specialist equipment nor protocols for dealing with attacks on schools malls or theatres — all as recent experience around the world shows potential targets India’s intelligence services the cutting-edge of any national counter-terrorism effort aren’t doing much better The IB has just two-thirds of the 26867 staff it is sanctioned by the government Training time has been slashed by half at its academy in a desperate effort to make up numbers Even so the IB’s central counter-terrorism office has just about 100 dedicated personnel; in the states there are just six-seven personnel with this task often also having other job functions Ever since 1979 when a scheme earmarking talent for the IB was scrapped it has also become short on officer-level staff The Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) isn’t doing much better In one critical station in the near-neighbourhood where attacks on Indian targets have been repeatedly planned and carried out the current RAW station chief doesn’t speak any local language — something that would be unimaginable for any foreign intelligence service Funding has at least something to do with the problem Punjab Police’s budget for 2014-2015 gave it Rs 59 crore for fuel instead of the Rs 170 crore it asked for There was no provision for new vehicles; those bought earlier were funded from a Central scheme which the finance ministry suspended this year The constraints are so severe that rural police stations have been left with a maximum of two functioning vehicles for their jurisdictions with fuel for just 100 kilometres a day Then there’s personnel The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has only 579 of the 816 personnel sanctioned compared to the FBI’s 34019 staff over 12000 of whom are actual investigators It isn’t that the problem is new In 1953 India’s first-ever national crime survey lamented the absence of “improvement in the methods of investigation or the application of science to this work” It called among other things for a “a better class of recruits” The failure of successful governments to act though points to a deeper malaise Forces can’t excel at fighting terrorism unless they have a professional leadership and institutional ethos Indian elites though have no interest in building police institutions that are both independent and accountable From politicians seeking to subvert the law to middle-class citizens who don’t want to be fined for traffic violations there is a vested interest in the status quo Even uglier is this truth: Leaders profit from the martyrdom of women and men in uniform In 1999 India set in place what scholar Max-Jeans Zins has called a “meticulously choreographed national funereal ballet” The patriotic frenzy unleashed as the dead were hailed for their sacrifice swept aside questions about the command-level failures that caused the carnage in the first place In the years since the media has rarely called the national leadership to account for the unnecessary loss of life “No dumb b****** ever won a war by going out and dying for his country” legendary General George Patton is reputed to have said “He won it by making some other dumb b****** die for his country” This wisdom needs to be

has been called a prostitute by her peers manhandled in public and received countless death threats but Sierra Leone’s football chief Isha Johansen refuses to buckle in pursuit of her goal of developing women’s and girls football across Africa One of only two women worldwide to currently head a football association Johansen is nearing the end of a four-year term dogged by the world’s worst Ebola outbreak political infighting and corruption allegations and a torrent of misogynist abuse Yet the president of Sierra Leone’s Football Association (SLFA) announced on Tuesday that she would stand for re-election as she seeks to clean up football’s image in the West African nation and inspire more girls and women to get into the game “Many girls dare to dream of making it big in football but they are scared” Johansen told the Thomson Reuters Foundation “I hope to inspire more women and girls to say no to gender discrimination bullying and sexism in the sport” she said “I want to be a pioneer for good governance gender equality and inclusivity in football to make a difference in a man’s game” Her announcement comes amid a deepening rift between Sierra Leone’s sports ministry and the SLFA against a backdrop of allegations of match-fixing against the national football team FIFA said it would send a task-force to Freetown this month to carry out ‘integrity checks’ on members of the country’s football association – having suspended a meeting to pave the way for the SLFA elections until these checks are completed “The government the SLFA and FIFA need to come together to clear the air” said Johansen who was briefly detained last year along with two of her SLFA colleagues by Sierra Leone’s anti-graft officials before being released without charge “We need to move on from this saga of corruption and mismanagement allegations” the 53-year-old added “That is why I want to run for a second term – to build upon the foundations I have put down and to complete a lot of unfinished business” TIME FOR CHANGE Johansen said some her of proudest achievements during her tenure have been setting up a national women’s football league and facilitating the training of female coaches and referees If re-elected she plans to get more young girls involved in football at grassroots level and also playing it in schools “With more and more Sierra Leonean women playing football more and more qualifying as coaches and referees we have a lot of role models to inspire girls to get involved” she said Alongside her ambitions for the future of football in Sierra Leone Johansen is braced for the prospect of more abuse – verbal and physical – if she wins a second term as president “I have been called all kinds of vulgar names … received so many death threats … but I haven’t entertained such abuse “The challenges of being a woman leading in a sport dominated men are many … but they have also given me the strength to forge ahead rather than buckle” Johansen added She believes perceptions are shifting when it comes to women in football – having been inspired by FIFA’s appointment last year of Senegalese ex-UN aid worker Fatma Samoura as its first female secretary general In an interview with the Thomson Reuters Foundation in 2015 Johansen said FIFA was not yet ready for a woman as president Now she thinks the time could be nigh “There is more of a commitment towards the women’s game in FIFA – and to encourage more women in positions of power” Johansen said “Things are changing quicker than I expected” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express

out how to fight against that pressure how to deal with it and most of the time they won’t find a way This will dramatically affect their results” It’s a level of pressure Williams has staved off all her career almost super-humanly Even as the American has hit a pause button on her Grand Slam acquisitions at 23 the most her closest rivals Venus Williams and Henin have managed is seven Majors each Maria Sharapova considered her bitterest competition is still at five While Roger Federer’s emergence inspired men’s tennis to dizzy heights Williams’ success seems to have stunted and overawed the women’s field Kerber who won her first Grand Slam at the 2016 Australian Open by brickwalling Williams in the final has been as consistent as any in the ‘younger’ field She made three Slam finals last year and added the US Open title to her Slam tally to become the No 1 player in the world The German seemed to have the persistence and patience to run Williams out of options But 2017 has been a

wrest back two breaks in the second set she failed to hold her own serve to ease Makarova’s path to victory The German neither played nor did she look like the No 1 player and a two-time Grand Slam champion It was the second year in a row that she had fallen in the opening round in Paris There is no order or sense in this Serena-less world of women’s tennis And it hasn’t been more evident than at the start of this French Open Even as players themselves agreed that there were 10 or more women capable of winning the clay-court Slam it took three hours into the tournament to plunge them into
