About


Lisanne Buik is a multidisciplinary artist and futures designer operating at the intersection of ecology, technology, spirituality and somatics. In her speculative installations, films, lectures and publications she combines emerging science with ancient wisdom to explore the shift from the age of the machine to a new age of symbiosis between living systems, the human bodymind, and technology. Her project Next Senses was exhibited at van Gogh Museum (2019) and Labyrinth of the Senses (2019). She has taught at universities and design schools like Gerrit Rietveld Academy and Erasmus University and does commissioned projects in partnership with organisations like Next Nature Network, Baltan Laboratories, Province of Zeeland and Philips.
"I wholeheartedly believe that the polarity of our current day provides an opportunity to find grace within ourselves. To rise up to protect a future that serves all (of life) by prototyping new operating systems for society and self that emulate the laws of nature."

Special Guest at Dutch Design Week’s talkshow ENTANGLED ECOLOGIES - Hosted by Design United.

Ways to work with me

Talks
My talks are entries into the power of designing and operating in tune with the principles of nature. I speak, educate and teach workshops at institutions like the Dutch Design Week, Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Philips, The Next Web Conference, RSM Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam.

Consulting 
How can your organization thrive in a world in crisis? I help organizations align with the new ethics, cultures, stories, and innovations that fit this era. My clients range from healthcare brands to cultural institutions to wildlife NGO’s and creative agencies. My facilitation and design processes transform strategies that do no longer work into more natural, resilient and embodied ways of operating and communicating.

Collaborations
I operate in an amorphous pool of collaborators. Together we carry projects from concept to execution, working confidently across a range of skills and media. Whether designing to a client’s brief or developing self-initiated projects, we apply the same meticulous attention to research, process, and detail. I am also a Fellow of Next Nature Network, we research, explore and educate on the impact of technology on nature and vice versa.
