The last months, In4Art and Phygital Studio teamed up as OurkilO and participated in the DigiCirc* accelerator program on circular cities. On September 8th, 2021 we were awarded with an 100k investment to realise our plans and ambitions. What began as an artistic exploration late 2019 with Bastiaan de Nennie, where we explored at V2_, Lab for the Unstable
We are proud to announce that our OurkilO project, with the REPLA Micro-Factory and component library, the art-driven innovation start-up project that spun out of the Reboot&Reuse program, has entered the second phase of the European DigiCirc accelerator program for circular cities. For 6 months, we can make use of their trajectory and coaching to
OurkilO’s mission is to close the material loop of recycled bioplastic and reduce carbon emissions in a city- one kilo at a time. It orginated from the Reboot & Reuse project, an art-driven innovation research project by Bastiaan de Nennie and In4Art on rebooting function and form, while closing a material loop. In 2021, the
At In4Art, we work along two program lines: Data Interfaces Closing material loops In these two programs, we conduct research projects, Art-Driven Innovation Experiments and provide guidance. Data Interfaces The Data Interfaces program is focused on the technological developments in the field of AI, IoT, human- machine interaction and also deals with privacy and agency.
Knowing that our resources and assets are limited, why aren’t we more willing to upcycle and extend the life span of objects? The Art-Driven Innovation project started as an artistic exploration; the Reboot & Reuse concept and was presented at ‘The evening of Im-Materials‘. Reboot & Reuse is a thinking-by-making investigation where fabrication engines on
Art is a powerful engine for responsible innovations In4Art combines the power of ‘the third source of experimentation’ – artistic experimentation – with rigorous research and a practical perspective on the need to create lasting value. As an innovation platform, In4Art is interested in making connections between science, technology and the arts. The organisation’s work
