rAndom International: Study of a Mirror / Interview

rAndom International is a London-based collective set up in 2002 by Stuart Wood, Flo Ortkrass and Hannes Koch. Their work explores the conflict between reinterpreting the cold nature of digital and the often hands-on approach of analogue. Most of their work is interactive with an intense curiosity applied to experimental processes.

rAndom International have won prestigious design awards such as the iF Desgin Award 2005 and 2006. At Design Miami Basel they presented their installation Audience that has been awarded an honorable mention in the Interactive Art category of the Prix Ars Electronica 2009.

We had a look at their work several times now. At Scope Miami 2006, Flo Ortkrass showed us rAndom International’s PixelRoller, Temporary Graffiti and the Temporary Light Printing Machine, at Design Miami Basel 2009 Hannes Koch talked about their installation Audience. Now, at the exhibition Design High at Louise Blouin Foundation in London we met with Hannes Koch and Flo Ortkrass again, speaking about the piece “Study of a Mirror” and their work in general.

Design High / Louise Blouin Foundation, London. June 24, 2009. Design High runs until August 30, 2009.
