***Alexander Rulkens

Alexander Rulkens is a 4th year student in Industrial Design at the 
TU/eindhoven. He is constantly searching for answers to questions like: what 
is the purpose of design? why do humans have the urge to design the world 
around them? why are there so many bad designs? what makes something a good 
design anyway? The project he will be presenting is a luminaire built to 
allow a user to play with light. Each movement directly influences the 
light. Pull it, push it, stretch it, launch it, create the light you want. 

*Dorkbot Eindhoven is an initiative of Art & Technology Festival STRP in
