As a designer, Van Aubel looks to ‘develop new materials and technologies, working between the fields of design and science’. The exhibition will show two of her pieces, Moonlight and Current Window. Moonlight is a collection of self-expanding pieces of foam porcelain and Current Window combines classic design techniques of stained glass with modern technology of solar panelling to create a modern interpretation of the stained glass window.
In conjunction with van Aubel, designer Jólan van der Wiel will be present his work in Energies Unseen – through their work both artists are looking to expose unseen energies while playing with the principles of nature. ‘Very often, new technology is driven by efficiency, not the user,’ Van Aubel told LS:N Global.
