    Come walk with us!

    A multi-sensory tour based on the industrial heritage of Strijp-S

    Take a tour with the Cosmic Travel Kit, a wearable addressing multiple senses. Based on an original concept by Eindhoven artist Peter Nagelkerke, Baltan Laboratories took the initiative to create an artistic experience built on the rich heritage of the Strijp-S area. We invited three artists to collaborate on this mission: Klara Ravat (DE/ES), Pieter Verhees (NL) and Angela de Weijer (NL).

    Date: 21, 22, 24, 26 Oct
    Time: 11:00 – 17:30
    Location: Baltan Laboratories / Natlab
    Free registration

    Cosmic Travel Kit looks like a blend between an astronaut’s helmet and a protable micro-theater. We created a 20-minute multisensory walk across Strijp-S, leading past several iconic locations. The inspiration for the tour comes from time travel and the rich history of the area, but it offers more than just nostalgia. Cosmic Travel Kit guides you through the walk using GPS, while alternate realities from past, present and future are narrated through sound and scent compositions. During DDW you can get an exclusive first taste of Cosmic Travel Kit.

    Come walk with us!

    Register for a tour and explore the Strijp-S area as if you are on another planet. Including dressing up and instruction the experience takes about 35 min. The Cosmic Travel Kit allows 1 person at a time to experience the multisensory tour.

    Homo Sensorium
    Cosmic Travel Kit is part of the Homo Sensorium program during Dutch Design Week in Natlab. With a mix of experiments, workshops, talks, dinners, performances, guided tours, a brainwave wedding lab and films, Homo Sensorium investigates the future of our technologically mediated body.

    The program is a collaboration initiated by Baltan Laboratories with Broet and Natlab. Homo Sensorium at DDW is part of a multi-year trajectory developed by Baltan Laboratories and kindly supported by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, Stichting Cultuur Eindhoven and Provincie Noord-Brabant.
