Omschrijving werk

Martijn Rigters is a designer based in The Hague, graduated from the Royal Academy of Art. His projects explore the grey area between man and machine and where the designer takes position. During the process of creation the tangible emerges - an object - but also the intangible - appreciation and attachment to an object. 
By using the human body as a design tool and as an essential part of the process of creation, Rigters tries to amplify the relationship between user and object. Ranging from an installation where the user becomes a part of the process as a contramould (Foam Party), a machine that equips the human hand with a glove to directly manipulate the outcome (Lathe take away), to an installation that allows every intuitive moment of the user to be translated into shape (Cutting Edge). By approaching it technically and conceptually different every time, possible proportions between the human, the machine and the designer are layed bare.
