[これは私の進行中のプロジェクトである「min[d]ing crystals」を続けながら行います。このプロジェクトは、クリスタルが生物の相互作用をどのように橋渡しするかについての研究であり、人間の体(脳や肝臓など)の側面や経済や文化などの大規模なネットワーク内での相互作用を含みます:人工性と「自然」に関する生態学的研究です。]

Irene de Boer (1994, NL), is interested in how patterns that originate from nature are adopted into culture, and how synthetic aspects of our culture become artificial nature. Her artwork often has a playful and nostalgic appearance, while the content often embodies quite complex material. This is reflected in works of art that combine contemporary techniques with traditional media or everyday materials. 

Within her art practice, she collaborates with various professionals in the fields of Material Culture, Art History, and Organic Material Science, thus building a bridge between elements in subcultures; pop culture and street culture. She lives and works in Amsterdam. In 2016 she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts at Minerva Art Academy Groningen. After completing her master’s degree in painting at the Frank Mohr Institute in Groningen in 2018, she stayed at CalArts and Otis College of Art in California. Her work has been on display at W139 Amsterdam (NL), and S.M.A.K Ghent (BE) and is included in various private and institutional collections in among others, Canton (CHN), Ohio, and Los Angeles (USA). 

At Studio Kura (JP), I will focus on detecting and archiving hidden energy chains and sound transitions. The fieldwork will include research on radio frequencies, wildlife communication, and pattern-making while working closely with the local community. The physical outcome will be a collection of stories and documents about collecting frequencies in various ways, from interviews and drawings to recordings and sight-specific works. 

[This is while continuing my ongoing project called min[d]ing crystals, which is about how crystals can bridge the interaction of organisms, within aspects of the human body (such as the brain and the liver) and within large networks such as economy and culture: an ecological study on artificiality and the ‘natural’].
