ABOUT__

Inge Sluijs is a Dutch researcher and creator who believes in the combinations of crafts, materials, technology and social questions. 

She shows the importance of collaboration between scientists and designers with her MA graduation project Plasma Rock in which she asks herself where is the dividing line between waste and an asset? For me, as a designer, this dividing line isn’t based only on the functionality but also about the story and meaning behind a material.

Materials can be used as tools that communicate stories. She sees it as her task as a designer to create a story around materials by discovering materials on different levels. She believes in the value of the critical and speculative concepts, not only with an outcome but with the complete creative process. Inge has been working on a wide range of topics: climate change, refugees, genetic modification, and biology.

Her collaborators have included a (biological) scientist, craftsmen, the manufactural industry and an ethicist.

Besides that, she is Curator and Project Manager of United Matters, a collective from London who questions how we might live in the future by blurring the boundaries between, craft, science, and technology.
