Design in Motion
Thursday, November 7th, there will be no advertisements on the screens located on the platforms and in the passages of Amsterdam Central Station. The commercial messages that are shown to travelers on a daily basis will make way for experimental and stimulating motion design for a period of 24 hours. Established graphic design studios, motion designers and young designers from all over the world are invited to show their work on the screens of Out-of-Home operator Exterion Media. In addition, an open call has been launched for new and unknown talent to be brought into the spotlight. There is also a collaboration with art academies to encourage students to experiment with motion. Talks about motion design will be organised in Lil Amsterdam in the IJ-passage in Amsterdam Central Station.
A new motion experience every hour
DEMO not only shows the best motion work of today, but it also offers a motion festival experience which constantly changes and thus never repeats itself. The motion design is played on the screens in a choreography; the entire space of the station is transformed into one large moving work of art. DEMO brings you a programme that changes every hour that creates a whole new motion experience. On November 7th, Amsterdam CS will be transformed into a free and publicly accessible exhibition space. The curators of the exhibition are Liza Enebeis, creative director of Studio Dumbar and initiator of DEMO, interdisciplinary designer Koos Breen and graphic and motion designer Xavier Monney.
