Hi, I'm Rutger, 26 years old Amsterdam lover with a high interest in photography and music! Want to know more about us (or me) send an email to rutger@overdose.am! YEW!

Two months ago, I told you about the last call for Edits, where young designers made a chance to be exhibited at Amsterdam’s Central Station. The results are now here! I went to the opening last Monday, where eight young designers presented their work. The art works all had to be inspired by a participating museum. This could be by an object from the permanent collection, by the building itself, or it could be a translation of their personal vision of a museum.

Formalism (Sietske Sips & Taconis Stolk) about their design ‘Navigating by the stars, cleaned up desktop version':

For centuries we sailed the seas using our eyes. During the day there was the sun, and at night, the constellations gave us the right direction.

I must say, the artists came up with really fresh and original pieces of art. They are now exhibited at Amsterdam Central Station next to previous calls for Edits. They will be exhibited for at least one year to dress up the construction and to show everyday travelers and locals what Amsterdam has to offer in the creative and cultural field.

Edits is the result of a collaboration between the local authorities and the Museum Night foundation (N8).
