Matthijs Munnik nominated for Rotterdam design award 2011
30-11-2011

ArtScience Award

Matthijs Munnik, 4th years student ArtScience at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague is nominated for the Rotterdam design award 2011 with his project 'Microscopic opera'. Microscopic opera is shown in Naturalis and Boijmans van Beuningen.

In 2010 Matthijs Munnik won the Designers & Artst 4 Genomics Award with his project Microscopic opera. Munnik uses C. elegans wurms - microscopic small wurms, and mutates their genes so they'll make different movements. He invented a way to turn their movements into sound. In cooperation with the Dutch Consortium for Systems Biology Munnik makes the wurms sing a Microscopic Opera.

The two yearly Rotterdam design award grants 15.000 euro to the winner. Five scouts recommend their favourite nominee for the award. There's also a special audience award. Everyone can vote for the audience award on www.designprijs.nl

Since 26th of November the nominated projects are shown in an exhibition in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
