Simon Dogger― Artist
Simon Dogger is a designer with a whole new point of view. During his studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven, he lost his sight and was forced to take a long break. He returned as a non-visual designer, with a renewed ability to listen and feel, and a strong drive to regain his independence. Not seeing himself as handicapped, but as someone who takes in information differently, he set out to explore more inclusive forms of communication. His concepts and designs combine visual, auditory and sensory means to improve the quality of life. Not only for the visually impaired, but for all people who could benefit from self-empowering, intuitive tools that help them connect with others and their surroundings.

Sander Veenhof― Artist
With a university degree in computer science and my education at the Gerrit Rietveld art academy, my expertise is twofold. I have the skills to realise anything I imagine, and I like to use my imagination to work on innovative solutions. I'm fascinated by augmented reality, and with years of experience with various contexts, collaborations and purposes I have a clear picture on the potential of the technology now and in the future.
