“Hi. People call me MeiMei. But others say Alice. That is because my engineers have put my head on the body of my twin sister. We do not know whether the head is more important to decide who I am. But let us stick to Alice.”
Allright, this may seem a little bit weird right ? Maybe it makes more sense if this is about a robot ? Yeah, all ready thought so. This is one of the projects of CRIPS which stands for Creative Industry Scientific programma. The goal of CRISP is to connect designers with scientific research, so that the designers are involved in the complete process instead of only designing the end product.
Danielle Arets (1977) did her study in visual philosophy and psychology at the University of Maastricht. After working in different functions in different setting she started in 2005 her own company called Capada for designresearch. Now she is involved in the programme of CRISP within the Design Academy Eindhoven.
