Clean out hall ways

Tomorrow morning the jury for the Academy wide prizes will be present, so the facility team will be cleaning out the hallways. If you have any material (wood, paper, etc.) laying around on lockers or on the floor- which you do not want them to throw away- please make sure to store it somewhere safe because tomorrow everything will be gone.


- light meter - Use the white ball to measure the light sources. Doing so you can very efficiently adjust the power of the used lamps.

'Only by passing through radical abstraction could a new concretization, and thus a new and exciting life become imaginable: With this, post-history would begin.'

Herinneringen aan de toekomst
Evert Klein Nagelvoort

Visie op duurzaamheid

Crisis is en zorgt voor verandering. Veel mensen lijken eerder terug te willen grijpen naar de zekerheid van het verleden, dan een stap te zetten naar de kansen van de toekomst. Ik ben ervan overtuigd dat er op het gebied van duurzaamheid veel kansen en ontwikkelingen zijn in de toekomst.

Deze serie gaat over duurzaamheid, waarin vanuit het heden naar de toekomst wordt gekeken. Het vormt een document van mogelijkheden op het gebied van duurzaamheid. Tegelijker tijd is het een tijdsdocument, want in de toekomst weten we pas in hoeverre deze mogelijkheden echt geïmplementeerd zijn in onze samenleving.
