“we are triggered by how information and technology transforms networks, cultures, societies, relationships, behaviors and interactions between people,” says jeroen barendse, the founder, design and art director for design studio rndr (@rndr.studio ), a netherlands-based company that develop tools for interactive media, creating work like installations, data visualizations and generative identities that almost exclusively use their own open source framework.
in march, rndr launched quarantine stories, an online platform and collaborative resource collecting personal stories of people in isolation during covid-19 as an effort to document the effects of social distancing.
“the project started from the simple premise that the view from our window is what connects all individuals currently living in isolation around the world and is the starting point to tell a personal story that touches upon being in quarantine,” explains jeroen. “sharing experiences on a large scale helps readers and contributors to avoid the sense of loneliness and encourages the expression of feelings.”
