Sander Hagelaar is an experience designer and artist. What fascinates him the most are the materials and movements the natural world encompasses. Harnessing these components, he seeks out the right environments or settings to facilitate these innate occurrences. Anything can happen in this process, which is precisely what he aims for, creating a framework in which the material or movement is free and unpredictable. This endeavor also takes on a social dimension as it is supposed to elicit the same reaction in a child as it would in an adult. Hagelaar’s particularly conceptual and experimental practice often channels different aspects of physics in “living” objects and installations. His interactive populations can either be kinetic or based on controlled chemical reactions. The shared experiences these projects facilitate also center on the notions of chance and unexpected reactions. The designer often incorporates intangible forces like light, gravity, and air.
