ABOUT

PLEUN VAN DIJK - is a multidisciplinary artist/designer in the middle of the moving and changing world. By observing and analysing moments of transition within society she tries to generate new thoughts and show a different perspective.  By taking new ideas out of the abstract and giving shape to possible future scenario’s she wants to give the viewer the possibility to anticipate on the new developments before they sneak up on us.
