As a researcher, designer and musician, Erik is mainly interested in understanding and deconstructing the systems of society on a political, ecological, social or technological level. He focuses on speculative design, in which he combines research and fiction.
"As a designer, I create space where we can discuss and reflect. I question, visualise, speculate, dream, reflect, connect, build and offer alternatives."
In Search of the Pluriverse
In the exhibition_ In Search of the Pluriverse_ you can join artist and researcher Sophie Krier and editor and storyteller Erik Wong in what they call the pluriverse, a world in which many worlds can thrive. Can we as humans learn to live together with other living beings, in difference? Can we design a future that actually has a future? This is a search for something that is already here: the pluriverse all around us.
Thursday Night Detour
Every Thursday night a Detour Guide takes you on a free Detour through one of the exhibitions on display at Het Nieuwe Instituut. Discover design, digital culture and architecture from the perspective of the guide. Every Detour is different. You might end up making a joint choreography or designing a space for insects.
