Annemarie Piscaer

Humans are atmospheric beings, particles, dust, in intimate cycles of exchange, actors with an incredible force. We need to become attuned actors with a deeper understanding of all the other particles.

Annemarie Piscaer is a researcher in Caradt’s Biobased Art and Design research group with the research The Garden as a Living Learning Lab, a Living Sensor. The Garden that Sees, Smells, and Hears, and tutor on the Design programme at St. Joost School of Art & Design.

Annemarie completed a degree at the Design Academy Eindhoven (BA), and Masters Education in Arts at the Piet Zwart Institute Rotterdam (MA) with the research As a designer I’m an expert I’m an amateur, 2017. She lectures regularly at various (art) institutions about her design practice and learning environments. About this, she published the research, co-authored with Dr. A. Nigten, “Colliding systems: formal and real-life learning,” 2019. She was external advisor for Creative Industries Fund NL, among others. She also teaches at the Design Academy Eindhoven.

She founded Studio Dust, a participatory research-by-design studio with the principle that everything has value, even dust “from dust to dust”. Together with Iris de Kievith she founded Lab AIR, a design collective for aerial issues, with Smogware – a tableware coloured with air pollution – as their first project.
