Drift is an art studio established in 2007 by artists Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta, based in Amsterdam
In their installations and interactive sculptures the relationship between nature/ human/ technology is key. Gordijn’s fascination for nature and that of Nauta for science fiction and technology intersect in an intriguing way. Over more than a decade of their existence, Studio Drift’s work in product and furniture design has evolved into increasingly larger, often site-specific and moving installations which they have realised all over the world. They collaborate with scientists, programmers, engineers, and other specialists in the development of projects.
The works occupy a wholly unique place between disciplines such as tech art, performance, and biodesign. Data and algorithms derived from natural phenomena often form the basis for Studio Drift’s work – the flight patterns of a flock of birds, for instance.
With the help of state-of—the- art technologies they translate this data into poetic, meditative experiences. Their ideas regularly anticipate technological possibilities.
Installations by Studio Drift are exhibited worldwide at leading museums, fairs and institutes such as the Victoria & Albert Museum (UK), Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (NL), World Expo Shang Hai (CN), Miami Basel, Miami (US), Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam (NL), M.A.D. New York (US), The Israel Museum (IL), Abu Dhabi Art Fair (UAE) and La Biennale di Venezia (IT), Biennale de São Paolo (Brazil) and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (NL).
