DDW21: Hara Hachi BU, 'roes' rituals, synthetic biology and LAWKI-Alive

It was that time of the year again.. For nine days, Eindhoven was all about Dutch Design Week. Throughout the city many artists, designers and the DDW audience brought the theme The Greater Number to life - by going big, or by intentionally doing less and keeping it small.

After a digital DDW in 2020, we couldn't wait to meet you again in real life in and around MU. And what a great edition it was. Thousands of visitors interacted with the screens of LAWKI-Alive, visited the Hara Hachi Bu village, danced (gently) on mycelium, triggered their taste buds with miso, fermented vegetables and spirulina pesto, learned all about synthetic biology during Bio Stories and 'tranced' away in the MU container with SMELT & The Performance Bar.  

Would you like to hold on to the DDW vibes just a little longer? Check out the pictures, listen to Arne Hendriks who vividly describes the Hara Hachi Bu village in this DDW TV episode or read about LAWKI-Alive in ED [Dutch].  

The DDW circus may has left town, but luckily LAWKI-Alive can still be experienced in MU until 28 November. During GLOW the expo is also open in the evening hours and admission is free. Check out the sneak peek - or after movie if you've already seen the exhibition - in which the ARK team takes us along their intriguing work.
