About Studio Drift

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 realized all over the world. The works occupy a wholly unique place between disciplines such as tech art, performance, and biodesign. This exhibition offers an overview of their groundbreaking oeuvre.

Studio Drift addresses such timeless themes as the relationship between individual and collective and (the illusion of) freedom. Concurrently, their work invites us to reflect on the impact of technology on our society. With almost intuitive attention for the digital realm this exhibition is closely related to earlier presentations in the Stedelijk, such as LUST, Ed Atkins, Jordan Wolfson, and Seth Price.

Invested in the continuous probing of the boundaries between disciplines, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is the perfect place to collect and present this body of work. It is thus no coincidence that the Stedelijk has been following the experimental collaboration between Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta closely for some time now. Over the past year their work has grown in terms of scale, complexity and impact, and the time is now ripe for the museum solo debut of Studio Drift at the Stedelijk Museum.

Sunday Seminar | Studio Drift: Coded Nature

On the occasion of the exhibition 'Studio Drift: Coded Nature', the Stedelijk organizes a Sunday Seminar on the work of artist duo Studio Drift. During this Sunday Seminar Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta of Studio Drift talk with trailblazing thinkers who are each known for their unique expertise on and exciting approach to the relationship nature-human-technology. And in two columns examples of their vibrant creative backdrop are given.
