Albert Lieuwe Bouwman
Fascinated by optical illusions, repetitions and patterns Albert Lieuwe researches how senses can be stimulated by pursuing an intuitive and sensorial experience. Making a 2D surface appear to be 3D, creating new patterns and compositions.
His NIWA project refers to Japanese gardens. These gardens use repetitions and patterns to imitate the essence of nature and to evoke a soothing experience. NIWA combines the longing for a sensorial and soothing experience.
