My name is Lex Raijmakers and I am a designer. Combining the digital world with the physical world is what I do best. I am skilled with data and with visualising data. I always search for the most fitting and interesting way to make data visible and accessible and I'm not scared to use my hands when doing so. Website currently under construction.
Data Gathering / Visualising data. With six magical boxes we gather sound levels in the Brabant Living Lab. The gathered sound levels are printed, on location, every day, into a three-dimensional graph. By making untouchable things physical we get new insights about the dynamics of a certain location.
On display in the Brabant Living Lab, Ketelhuisplein - Dutch Design Week 2017, Eindhoven.

I wrote a program in processing in which you load the dimensions of your body. For example the distance from your ankle to your knees. From this data the program generates a blueprint. The blueprint is used to create a chair made from wood and plexiglass. Because of the simplicity of this chair, it's blueprint is easy to convert into different dimensions.x
These carafes are generated by an algorithm that analyses dune movement. It creates organic vase-like shapes from the data of The Loonse and Drunense Dunes. Fifty square meters of dune within a time span of fifteen years are translated into a three-dimensional object. These objects lets you experience dune migration in a new way.

By analysing and sorting Shakespeare's most famous script I created a program that creates three line poems. You can which character said the line and the rest is random generated.x
