Alumna Graphic Design Roos Groothuizen wins Icarus Award 2017

20 November 2017

Proud of our alumna Graphic Design Roos Groothuizen! On the 16th of November 2017 she was announced winner of the Icarus Award 2017 for her work entitled ‘The Black Box Bellagio’. Awarded every year, the Icarus Award is intended for a young artist whose work questions issues touching upon the thin line between technological possibilities and ethical implications.

Roos is interested in the unfair distribution of information and how online algorithms systematically discriminate us. ‘The Black Box Bellagio’ is an unusual casino that won't accept your money, but is after your freedom, integrity and private data instead.

Roos graduated at the Graphic Design department of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in 2015 with the project "The Consulate of Google'.
