Hereby we proudly present our first EPUB of the CrossLab event; Dynamic Design. This EPUB is established by restruct.org, CrossLab, Willem de Kooning Academiy and the knowledge centre; Creating 010.

Since november 2010, CrossLab has been organizing a series of events about ’state of the art’ developments in media technology and design, discussed by professionals within the field of art and design. Previous events include: Transmedia Stories, Digital Craft and Dutch Digital Design.

About this EPUB
This EPUB consists of four lectures by Jeroen van Erp (Fabrique), Alper Çuğun (Monsterswell), Irene van Peer (Pig Chase), Tom de Bruyne and Astrid Groenewegen (Sue Amsterdam). All lectures have been tagged according to five keywords: behaviour; experience; process; data aesthetics and storytelling. This arrangement allows a non linear and thematic reading of the event.
The keywords reflect the main topics of all four lectures, representing Dynamic Design. The keywords can be used to navigate through snippets of all lectures. Each snippet offers a link to the complete lecture, including bios and slides of the speakers.

14 prototypes for creative industry factories

Creative Industries Fair

June 30th 12-7pm at WORM, Rotterdam.

Join us for a one-day show at WORM Rotterdam. 14 Media Design & Communication MA students from Piet Zwart Institute present 14 experimental factories for the new »Creative Industries«. Meet and talk with the artists, and earn your drinks in the factories.
The creative industries are among the fast growing sectors of the Dutch economy. Aside from the creation of form, meaning or symbolic value, the core activities in this top sector concern the way in which these very activities are being designed – the creative innovation process. This top sector revolves around companies that are founded upon creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.The Media Design Masters program of the Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academie Hogeschool Rotterdam presents 14 prototypes of factories for the production of film, images, social networks and design, providing inspiration and investment opportunities for all visitors.
