Saturday morning, collecting the last bits of the DDW, rounding of four inspiring days in Eindhoven. Any white spots on the full flavored map that I have missed? Sure enough haven't I seen everything yet. Back to the "Witte Dame". First floor, MU, "After the bit rush". The theme is about the post digital age. Bits and bytes, or not?
Square pushing, low poly, scanning, reproducing, digital esthetics meets the analogue. Designing hardware like software. Is this about the high tech component I have missed so far, or is it beyond that? Inspiring it is for sure.
A final walk along the pearl necklace called DDW. A look behind main street, zig zagging through the industrial blocks down town. Follow the arrows. Atelier Dorp, Zona Ventosa, left, right. Blind walls, graffiti, tags. A painter behind a barred window. There are still some creative corners to discover. Close to the local football stadium I finally find the entrance to TAC, the temporary art center.
Inside the building a last blast of art and design. Ceramics seen somewhere else a year before, precise and angular, paper cut. My cup of tea has moved, the virus continues to spread. One of the rooms is filled with a selection of Slovakian design. Another indication that the Dutch Design Week has entered the international stage. Go visit next year!
