In the light of covid-19, Holland Festival needed to re-establish their programme in an online format, focusing on the notion of being ‘in pursuit of the we’. Together with film director Ruben van Leer we worked on this online project in which African-American choreographer, director and dancer Bill T. Jones wants to find out what people profoundly know. The project invited the audience to participate by uploading a video of expressing a sentence beginning with the words ‘I know…’
The Quarantine Stories project is an online platform that gathers personal stories big and small of people in (self)isolation during COVID-19, providing a single collaborative resource to support many, in an effort to document the effects of social distancing.
An autonomous AI engine that arranges and edits film in continuous real time. Putting this computer program in the editor’s seat opens new doors to innovative ways of filmmaking.
UNCODE is a real-time interactive installation which premiered during Electric Castle Festival 2019 at Bànffy Castle, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The installation visualises how the process of creative coding works by exposing its mechanics.
A visual story of contemporary life: how did you live and how will you live in the future? Tod’s No_Code exhibition examines the changes happening in contemporary society resulting from the rapid progression we are seeing in existing codes. The concept of ‘Hybridization’ in contemporary culture is the central theme of the exhibition. It is based on the synergy between technology and traditional craftsmanship.
In this datavisualisation tool for the World Government Summit in Dubai 2019, the countries will re-arrange according to inter-country similarity of the selected indicators. The indicators are grouped in 6 main categories (for example Health, Happiness, etc) with subcategories and can be coloured along 32 themes.
Data visualisation that shows the impact of the British air attacks between September 1939 and May 1945 above the Dutch part of the North Sea.
Recently, the Leidsche Rijn tunnel over the A2 highway in Utrecht was installed, a crucial part of the urban development master plan for Leidsche Rijn by Maxwan from 1994. When the neighbourhood is finished in 2030, there will be about 110.000 people living in this gigantic city addition.
How much time will we save in a city with autonomous cars, ride sharing and smart traffic management? The "25th Hour: Flow" project by Audi tries to answer these questions by partnering with traffic experts at the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT), MobilityPartners and RNDR.
Cities offer attractive living environments – not only for permanent residents, but also for those who regularly come there to work, shop, or enjoy their free time. Various modes of transport connect these activities and allow efficient, quick, convenient travel to the desired destination. But mobility as we know it today also contributes to noise pollution, exhaust fumes, and noise.
OPENRNDR is our largest and longest running project and is a crucial tool for most of our work. OPENRNDR is a tool to create tools, an open source framework for creative coding, written in Kotlin, that simplifies writing real-time interactive software.
READ/WRITE/REWRITE was an interactive installation exhibited at Typojanchi 2017 in Seoul, South Korea, that visualizes how a machine can learn to ‘read and write’ by using machine learning applied to natural language in the form of written text.
Can technology, social security and atmosphere reinforce each other in an architectural design? The Willem II passage is a new connection that connects the city center of Tilburg with De Spoorzone development area.
In 2016 Flanders & the Netherlands hosted the guest of honour pavilion for the world’s most important literary event; the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
You control the control room. Using Google Streetview as a representation of reality and an algorithmic visual and auditive filter triggered by three-dimensional movements, the installation becomes a visualisation presented as an interactive space.
Imagine you can use your body as the start for a search in a movie. Imagine searching for similar films scenes as Rocky’s victory dance on top of the steps just by raising your arms.
The exhibition Type/dynamics sees two galleries at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam adorned with large, interactive typographic installations, that plays off, reacts to, and dialogues with the work of Jurriaan Schrofer.
RNDR is a design studio for interactive media that develops ‘tools’ that are only finished by how they are used.
To achieve this, we develop processes, create structures, design visualisations, code programs, and create interactions. The end result can manifest itself across different media, ranging from interactive installations, data visualisations, generative identities, prints and everything in between – often real-time. We are triggered by how information and technology transforms networks, cultures, societies, relationships, behaviours, and interactions between people. Our work explores and engages with hybrid space as it embraces both the digital and the physical.
RNDR was founded in 2017 in The Hague, (NL). Its main members have years of experience as partners, computer scientists, designers, art directors and developers at LUST and LUSTlab.
One of our core projects, and basis for most of our projects, is OPENRNDR, an open source framework for creative coding –written in Kotlin for the JVM– with over nine years of development, that simplifies writing real-time audio-visual interactive software. OPENRNDR is fundamental for the capacity of RNDR as a studio, as it allows us to realize complex interactive works. OPENRNDR was awarded the Dutch Design Award 2019.
