Fish on Wheels at Van Abbemuseum during Dutch Design Week

As part of the exhibition Sense Nonsense our Fish on Wheels will be on display at the Van Abbemuseum. The exposition is a collaboration between the museum and the Design Academy Eindhoven and is also part of the Dutch Design Week 2014.

The exhibition is described as follows: “Through the exhibition Sense Nonsense at the Van Abbemuseum, Design Academy Eindhoven explores the inevitable relation between sense and nonsense, the interplay of sanity and insanity in innovation, and the role of the ridiculous and the absurd in liberating society and industry from the conventional wisdom that drives it.”

At the beginning of this year Fish on Wheels received quite some  worldwide media attention. The device featured in many different TV shows, theaters and online media. This is the first time it is part of an official exhibition and open to the public.

If you’d like to see Fish on Wheels drive around be sure to stop by the Van Abbemuseum from the 18th of October till the 9th of November.

 

Media attention “Fish on Wheels”

Right after we launched our “Fish on Wheels” all big tech-blogs started writing articles about it. After the tech-blogs, the normal news websites and even television shows followed. For days the “Fish on Wheels” movie was in the top 50 most watched movies on YouTube worldwide, with currently close to a million views on YouTube alone. A part of a Discovery Channel episode of Daily Planet was even recorded in our office. You can find the episode here on Discovery Channel (February 11th 2014).
