Structuring chaos black tangle

Perpetuum Mobile: perpetual motion. Kiki and Joost's workshop operate as a living, breathing entity. It embodies the essence of perpetual motion, a captivating symphony where ideas flow, ideas transform, and the creative energy propels their endeavors forward.

Revealing the poetry of a self-propelled creative workflow, with creativity at its very core.

Perpetuum Mobile is a hypothetical device that generates continuous motion without an external energy source. Figuratively, It symbolizes ongoing inspiration and creativity. Kiki & Joost's workshop operates with the precision of a finely tuned machine. It moves autonomously, akin to a symphony where an unbroken rhythm resonates through their creations. The creative process flows dynamically and perpetually, with each action giving rise to a reaction. Their hands-on approach and constant reflection are intricately intertwined, forming a symbiotic relationship known as "Thinking Hands." Fearlessly, they dare to reinvent traditional crafts, exploring sculptural techniques and remaining steadfast in their commitment to the analog way of working that underpins all their projects. Their dedication to minimizing the use of technology is evident as they embrace the brilliance of working with their hands and intuition, supported by their exceptional team.
During this year's DDW, they showcase the poetic beauty of creation and the dynamic nature of works in progress. Their exhibition epitomizes boundless creativity, embodying a perpetual motion of inspiration—a true "Perpetuum Mobile.”
