Ooze is an international practice operating in the fields of art, architecture and urban strategies, based in Rotterdam, and founded by Eva Pfannes and Sylvain Hartenberg in 2003. Ooze combines an elaborate understanding of natural, ecological processes with technological expertise and deep insights into the social-cultural behavior of users of the built environment. Their design and research projects, constructed in collaborative processes that balance imaginations of futures with urgent, current needs, are transformative tools at the hand of agents. Ooze strives to be a catalyst for change and believe that change is incremental. Each project, each art installation, building, public space or urban structure is both, the product of a way of living and an idea of adapting this way of living to achieve a more social and ecological sustainability. The cyclic processes found in nature form the base for each intervention and integrate the human scale within a holistic urban strategy.
Their interdisciplinary works include Of Soil and Water: The King's Cross Pond Club (Relay Art Program, London, 2015), Between the Waters: The Emscher Community Garden (EMSCHERKUNST, Essen, .2010 +2013), The Public Space Society (Art and the City, Zuerich, 2012) Théâtre Evolutif (Bordeaux, 2011), The Cook, the Farmer, His Wife and Their Neighbour (Stedelijk Goes West, Amsterdam, 2009), The Commons (Yes Naturally, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, The Netherlands, 2013) and The Wind Lift (Folkestone Triennial, 2014), Agua Carioca Research and Pilot project, Rio Janeiro 2013 -2016), Villa Rotterdam ( Rotterdam, 2010), Monument House( Leipzig,2016). They are collaborating on numerous projects with the Artist Marjetica Potrc.
