HAP-klaar, lokaal en gezond. HAP is een distributienetwerk in het hart van de stad, die de logistieke knoop rond korte keten transport van bereide voeding wil ontwarren. Bedrijven op de route verbinden zich er toe om 1x per week samen met de collega's te kiezen voor een HAP-lunch.
Karen Van der Perre has devised a way for people who live within restricted environments, such as prisons or clinics, to interact with nature. These people live by strict schemes and cannot go outdoors whenever they want. But experiencing how things grow is beneficial to them. ‘Room to Grow’, a scheme for growing houseplants, offers a solution: the seeds are planted indoors in pots. These have a colour code to indicate how much sunlight is needed and a system for keeping track of the watering scheme. The intensive interaction between plant and caretaker achieves a therapeutic effect in places where it is most fruitful.

Veenhuizen Portrait is a project that presents a different view of this historical village than the one a visitor usually encounters, and provides a local point of view.
To achieve this local perspective, a methodology of sentimental mapping was developed. This method combines interviews and interactions with a map, revealing local issues and the intimate relationship between local people and their environment. In the case of Veenhuizen, the result is a set of places, peculiar stories and anecdotes. This set of places is curated into an experience of drifting through the personal landscape of Veenhuizen. The experience takes the form of a cinematic book, PLACES OUT OF SIGHT, in both print version and interactive web book. The combination of these two publications makes the project more accessible to the public and reflects the time we live in. While the web product invites the user to explore Veenhuizen from wherever they are, the printed book becomes a part of the experience of visiting the village. By distributing the book through the existing platforms of the village, a cycle is completed.
