SEPTEMBER 14, KURHAUS SCHEVENINGEN
5 YEARS ZANDMOTOR CONFERENCE
ZANDMOTOR AS CULTURAL PHENOMENON
Satellietgroep is invited by Rijkswaterstaat and Provincie Zuid-Holland to participate during the Zandmotor Conference on the 14th of September in order to celebrate 5 years of the Zandmotor. We will give a Talk and Presentation of the Zandmotor as a Cultural Phenomenon.
Zandmotor is described as Building with Nature, a conceptual shift in our relationship with the sea. This relationship is as much a
cultural phenomenon as it is an ecological or engineering one. Designed by man, performed by nature. Satellietgroep explores the Zandmotor as an innovation that generates innovatory visual
narratives about the
hybrid relationship of mankind and man made
nature. It requires the arts and design to further explore the implications of this evolving relationship to be shared with broader
During the Expo Market of the conference Satellietgroep presents a selection of our growing Zandmotor Collection,
developed by artist in residents Zoro Feigl, Theun Karelse, Josje
Hattink, Berndnaut Smilde, Sarah Cameron Sunde, Laboratory for
Microclimates, Esther Kokmeijer and students of the ArtScience Interfaculty, in close collaboration with cultural partners, scientists and local experts.
Together with Onkruidenier we present the ongoing research called
Water Pioneer, with A Taste of Climate Change, drinks and amuses made from
edible plants found on the Zandmotor.
Design duo Atelier NL presents ZandGlas, an unique set of glassware, made of sand from the Zandmotor.
TU Delft presents the innovation called Beachrock, a process that turns sand into stone.

A TASTE OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Water Pioneer by Satellietgroep & Onkruidenier
The Anthropocene influence on climate change may well be closer to our bodies than we suspect.
As the world is changing, we need to develop a new idiom to create a profound understanding of our shifting coexistence with the sea and the impact of climate change. The idiom of the arts is not language itself but to evoke our imagination and appeal to individuals and audiences by sensory experiences.

ZandGlas by Atelier NL tells the stunning narrative of the sea, currents, wind, rivers, time, mankind and the origins of the Netherlands. This new glassware is a prime example of Innovatory Heritage, an innovative method
of storytelling through arts, design and science. These are the very first prototypes of a new serie and a real
collector's item. ZandGlas is for all
coastal, art and design enthusiasts with a passion for history and
