The Patchingzone is a transdisciplinary laboratory for innovation where Master, doctor, post-doc students and professionals from different backgrounds create meaningful content. In our laboratories the students and researchers work together, supervised by experts, on commissions with creative use of high-tech materials, digital media and / or information technology.
The Patchingzone brings together people who are interested in building a shared practice. The participants come from a range of educational programs such as art schools, design schools, social and computer sciences, technical programs, and industry.
The Patchingzone applies the Processpatching approach that is defined by its initiators (Anne Nigten) PhD thesis, as its main methodology for creative research and development, and builds on the knowledge and expertise from the V2_Lab, the research and development department of V2_. V2_ is a widely acknowledged centre for art and media technology, based in Rotterdam. V2_ produces, presents and distributes media art. Furthermore, we build on shared expertise from the network of collaborators and experts from the field.
