Studio Drift creates site-specific installations and interactive sculptures by playing with existing and new relationships between nature, technology and mankind. At first glance, the works seem to refer to familiar situations, but on further investigation, these references are brought into question. This places the viewer in an interesting position, reshaping how we relate to our environment and stimulating new ways of thinking.
Studio Drift uses advanced technology and fine craftsmanship. Each new work attempts to make a future prediction. This entails a struggle within the limits of what is considered possible, ultimately pushing back the boundaries each time. Since research is an important part of Drift’s work process, Drift frequently collaborates with scientists, university departments and research facilities, computer programmers and engineers.
Studio Drift (Amsterdam, NL) was founded in 2007 by Lonneke Gordijn (1980 Alkmaar, NL) and Ralph Nauta (1978 Swindon, GB). Since then they have produced multi-disciplinary installations, sculptures, objects and films. Their work has been exhibited worldwide at leading museums, fairs and institutes worldwide.
Studio Drift’s most well known projects include Fragile Future, Flylight and Shylight. Work by Studio Drift is acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the San Francisco MoMA, Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar and a large number of private collections.
