About Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta

Studio DRIFT, founded by Academy of Einhoven graduates Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta, is based in Amsterdam and comprised of a versatile team that regularly collaborates with university departments, researchers, and scientists to develop technologically advanced methods for creating high-tech art. Their light sculptures, which have been displayed all over the world, combine mathematical geometry and ethereal fantasy. One series integrates real dandelions into a bronze, circuit board-like structure. The effects they create, which they compare to a “piece of a dream world,” capture the duo’s mesmeric sensibility.
