Moon Life speculates on the possibility that humans will live in space in the future. The project examines the potentialities and challenges of life on the Moon not only in the fields of architecture and design but also for social, public and political life. Artists, architects and designers are encouraged to radical thinking towards concepts of habitat design for the Moon to create a platform for the public to engage with these notions and discuss the ‘publicness’ of the possibility for living on the Moon.

Low Cost Design, a book by Daniele Pario Perra This volume is founded on a principle upheld by leading designers: the best project is not necessarily the one that is patented, that is created by architectural firms or at the computer by leading companies, but rather the one that springs from the simplicity of daily life. Starting from this concept Daniele Pario Perra presents here the results of a vast research project carried out between Northern Europe and the Southern Mediterranean, in the course of which he documented thousands of examples of spontaneous creativity, creating a visual dictionary that strikes a constant balance between "poetic skill" and "technological skill".
The MER. foundation was founded to examine the possibilities and position of the book medium as a place to exhibit art. The art book, since its beginnings, has traditionally been developed as a catalogue or an aide-mémoire, and seldom has been considered as a space to exhibit living art. However, artists from Dada to the appearance of the artist’s book have always thought of books as exhibiting spaces. MER. will be involved with providing this kind of activity through an institutional platform. MER. calls itself a Paper Kunsthalle, and plans to initiate, develop and support art exhibiting within the book medium.

Taking its name from a speech given by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1901 ("The Art and Craft of the Machine"), the Experimental Station exceeds even Wright's dream of a place where art and technology would embrace one another under the same roof, where such an encounter would lead to new ideas and innovative designs and practices.

Sophie Krier was born in 1976 in Halle, Belgium and has the Luxemburgish nationality . She lives and works in Rotterdam since her graduation from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1999. Her work field is situated in the periphery of the design profession and includes activities such as teaching, writing, collecting, editing, experimenting. Her work is process-oriented and always attempts to investigate the space (for innovation, playfulness, reflection) within a given assignment. The work is therefore often described as editorial. At the core of each concept is the wish to generate meaningful relationships between message, context, and receivers.
iwishicoulddescribeittoyoubetter is an archive of possibilities. Less a collective, design studio or fixed group, but the place of perchance running into one another, where encounters are created and some relationships last, others to which we wave warmly in retrospect. The projects, blog entries and works presented at left have become what may be an idealistic cloud of tags and labels that have in previous manifestations been difficult to categorise, name and place. The ambivalence as such is noted and taken, yet please take that as possibility -yes, possibility- to wander, link through, come back and find threads between the works, ideas and people... as we have.

Barbara Visser's works explore the uncertain relationship between registration and dramatization, between notions of original and copy, the natural versus the staged, and the tension between what we call the documentary and the fictitious. Using a wide variety of media and formats, the work sheds a new light on our understanding of civilized man, and the objects with which he surrounds himself.
