Rabo Kunst op de Dommel

Rabo Kunst op de Dommel (‘Art at the Dommel’) wants to make you aware of the exceptional force of renewable energy sources. Via technical innovations we can already use this energy, for example to make music! From the 22nd of May till the 5th of June, various artworks are inspired by energy, technology and music to bring you the music of the Dommel. The works of art are located in and around the river, connecting the High Tech Campus with the Eindhoven University of Technology. This route of artworks consists of sound producing, music making, moving and squeaking installations that will draw your attention to come closer. Follow the river,and listen to the positive energy of the Dommel! Click here for further information and the schedule.

LoraWan Eindhoven Tech & Sensor Workshop

IMG_2736 kl EHV gateways januari 2016 kl The Meetup on Wednesday January 13, 2016 was maybe a historic one. As someone from the participants said: This is the last time we can see the map of Eindhoven with only four Lora Gateways active.

Some 42 people joined and participated in the gathering, listening to updates from local and national communities and pioneers, and indulging in projects of various kind demonstrated by members of the community. From SODAQ demo to Arduino Workshop and custom nodes and gateways.

Jan van Loenen – SODAQ – presented the sensor and node modules and components they developed; core market rural areas around the world where there is need for wireless low power long distance sensor communication.

In Eindhoven the combined power of knowledge, experience and resources is such that we can scale up the deployment of the LoraWan system quite fast.

Here is more information.

Interrupting the City

On January 7, 2016 MAD participated in the launch of this dialogue and debate series, as part of the Cultural Programme during the Netherlands presidency of the EU 2016. See for more information about the overall programme also

Art and design can and does affect society. It puts matters in perspective, reflects, initiates changes, but also comes up with innovative, practical solutions for real problems. In three sessions artists, designers, policy makers, managers, cultural entrepreneurs and researchers discuss the impact of art on a rapidly changing world.

The first dialogue was centralised around the theme set by the new book Interrupting the cityArtistic Constitutions of the Public Sphere (Valiz, 2015) edited by Bax, Gielen en Ieven.
