Program

Looking for an inspiring conversation? An opportunity for new collaborations? Or just a stimulating encounter with a good glass of wine? Join us at the Eindhoven Innovation Café. The place where people from the arts, design, research and technology interact. We aim for a weekly program full of inspiring pitches, expert talks, discussions as well as workshops, lasting up to half an hour parallel to the drinks. English spoken. Of course.

AUGUST 1 – AUGUST 31

 
Summer Break
EHV Innovation Cafe is taking a summer break! There will be no presentations throughout all of August. But don’t you worry. We will be back again on Thursday September 1st.

Have a great summer!

SEPTEMBER 1

 

Reconnecting Generations in a Caring Society

17:30 – 17:45 pm Walk in
17:45 – 18:15 pm Talk by Anne Ligtenberg
18:15 – 19:00 pm Drinks

In order to think about what life is like at old age, What if Lab commissioned Studio Anne Ligtenberg to create a card game in collaboration with Actiz, wherein participants can put themselves in the shoes of an eldery person. The goal of the game is to start an open discussion on subjects that are easy to ignore when you are young.

People are central to the work of Studio Anne Ligtenberg. The designers make difficult subjects open for discussion and thereby stimulate mutual understanding and resilience. The design studio distinguishes itself through an empathic approach and works primarily in the social domain to improve people’s well being.

This talk is made possible by Dutch Design Foundation.

The Virtual Kingdom of Negligible Objects
17:30 – 17:45 pm Walk in
17:45 – 18:15 pm Talk by Guy Bar-Sinai
18:15 – 19:00 pm Drinks
How do we experience changes in the digital era and how do these changes influence our perspective and the way we experience the world culturally? In the talk, Guy Bar-Sinai will take you through his personal experience and the thought process that gave birth to his project, “The Virtual Kingdom of Negligible Objects.” A virtual reality realm in which analog, neglected, and everyday objects celebrate themselves through the filters of the digital world and ask themselves existential questions about their future in a world that increasingly enters the digital spaces.

Guys work investigates the tension between culture, artifacts, and social trend through personal experience. His works ranges from physical objects to digital art and explores the culture and social contexts influenced by them.

Social Light Design
17:30 – 17:45 pm Walk in
17:45 – 18:15 pm Talk by Valentine Maurice
18:15 – 19:00 pm Drinks
More than 20% of the population loses one hour of sleep because of the blue wavelength, which deregulates our biological system. The aim of Time as Light is to reconnect humans with their natural element: the sunset. And to create an empathetic relationship with our light technologies. Further, the psychological perspective for insomnia is questioned by analyzing people’s relationship with screens and how it can be transcripts into a tool against insomnia.

Valentine Maurice developed a practice questioning the transdisciplinarity research that explores issues around care and health, that is a scientific approach related to well-being focusing on insomnia problems, light deregulation and technology dependence.

Imagine a world of fluid fashion: what does it take to keep clothes purely digital? When should we connect the digital to the physical production and what are the challenges?

Flora Miranda is an artist and fashion designer based in Antwerp and Vienna. After graduating with a master’s degree from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, she worked with Iris Van Herpen. Throughout her work the main focus is on the human being, performing in an actual or virtual reality.
